Fukushima executives cleared of negligence Listen
A Japanese court has acquitted three former executives of the Tokyo Electric Power Company of professional negligence in the Fukushima disaster of 2011. This was the only criminal case to arise from the crisis, when an earthquake and giant tsunami caused a meltdown in the power station's nuclear reactors. The executives, who faced up to five years in prison if found guilty, said they could not have anticipated the tsunami risk with the information available to them. Annemarie Evans asked RTHK’s Tokyo correspondent Julian Ryall what the reaction had been to the acquittals in Japan.
