Finally a confession from TEPCO...

TEPCO failed to take enough safety measures before Fukushima disaster

A senior official of Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday at a U.S. panel meeting in Tokyo that the company failed to take sufficient safety measures before last year's disaster at its Fukushima nuclear complex, fearing that taking such measures could "fuel the anxiety" of local people.

On the first day of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences' committee meeting through Wednesday, Akira Kawano, general manager of Tokyo Electric's Nuclear International Relations and Strategy Group, said the company "was concerned that safety measures, if taken, might rather fuel the anxiety of local people."

Kawano also said the nuclear crisis was caused because multiple protection measures at the complex were "not enough to fend off the tsunami that was beyond earlier assumptions."
