TEPCO Only Wants 10% Of Serious Accident Manual Released To Public

TEPCO has finally submitted in full their emergency manuals to the Lower House committee investigating the accident. After months of obstruction and releasing manuals with most of the content blacked out, the government exercised a legal rule to compel the documents. After NISA compelled the manuals they asked TEPCO how much of it should not be disclosed to the public. TEPCO asked for 50% of the total manuals submitted not be made public and only 10% of the serious accident manual be released to the public.

TEPCO cited intellectual property and that releasing the manuals would make similar facilities terrorism targets.  There is much speculation that the refusal to disclose information in these manuals is a legal maneuver to avoid having the information used in lawsuits against the company.
