Fukushima operator takes blame for world’s worst nuclear accident in 25 years
Friday 14 December 2012
The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant admitted that its lack of safety and bad habits were behind the world’s worst nuclear accident in 25 years.
Tokyo Electric Power Co said it accepted the findings of a parliamentary inquiry into the disaster that accused the company of “collusion” with industry regulators.
Takefumi Anegawa, head of a company reform task force, said: “We admit, we completely admit, that part of the parliamentary report.” Until recently Tepco has denied it could have foreseen the scale of the tsunami and earthquake in 2011.
