Secrecy agreement between Fukushima and IAEA revealed by Tokyo newspaper, Tokyo Shimbun: ”They hid the adverse health effects in Chernobyl … same thing is happening with Fukushima”

Secrecy agreement between Fukushima and IAEA revealed by Tokyo newspaper, Tokyo Shimbun: ”They hid the adverse health effects in Chernobyl … same thing is happening with Fukushima”

Translation by Fukushima Voice, [published Jan. 6, 2014]: It was discovered that the memorandum of cooperation between the IAEA and Fukushima as well as Fukui Prefectures contain a confidentiality clause […] critics say “it could be preempting the State Secrecy Protection Law.” […] In Fukushima Prefecture, it was the prefectural government that entered into an agreement with IAEA in the area of decontamination and radioactive waste management, whereas Fukushima Medical University entered into an agreement with IAEA in the area of the survey of radiological effect on human health. […] “The Parties will ensure the confidentiality of information classified by the other Party as restricted or confidential.” […] if either the prefectures or IAEA decide to classify information for “they contribute to worsening of the residents’ anxiety,” there is a possibility that such information as the accident information, as well as radiation measurement data and thyroid cancer information may not be publicized. […] IAEA has published reports, after the Chernobyl nuclear accident, stating “there were no health effects due to radiation exposure.” […]

Yours,

Pano

PS:

Ruiko Mutoh, representative of  Fukushima nuclear disaster plaintiffs: “IAEA has a history of hiding information about health effects in Chernobyl. The same thing could happen to Fukushima.”

And IAEA has entered into secrecy agreements with every party to the disaster in Fukushima…

Transparency is obviously not a word in Kanji.
