Tokyo Electric Power : Ex-TEPCO execs merit indictment over nuclear crisis: prosecution panel


An independent judicial panel of citizens has decided that three former executives of Tokyo Electric Power Co. merit indictment over the 2011 nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, judicial sources said Thursday.

The Tokyo panel has voted in favor of the decision on Tsunehisa Katsumata, chairman of TEPCO at the time of the disaster, and two other executives.

Last September, Japanese prosecutors decided not to indict former leaders of the Fukushima plant operator, saying they lacked criminal responsibility.
