ShareThisCharges dropped against Japan ex-PM, TEPCO on Fukushima 09 Sep 2013 Japanese prosecutors on Monday decided not to charge former prime minister Naoto Kan and TEPCO bosses over the initial stages of the nuclear disaster at Fukushima. The decision still leaves open the possibility that they will face criminal charges over other aspects of the disaster, including recent leaks of contaminated radioactive water from the crippled power plant. Local residents and activists had filed a criminal complaint against Kan and his ministers alleging professional negligence over the accident. They had also requested prosecutors charge former top executives of Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO), the operator of the plant, and Haruki Madarame, former chief of the Nuclear Safety Commission.
