JAPAN'S EX-PRIME MINISTER KOIZUMI MEETS IRRADIATED U.S. SAILORS – URGES FAIR, SPEEDY RESOLUTION TO LAWSUIT!

 

Popular former Prime Minister Jun'ichiro Koizumi of Japan met for the past three days with sick U.S. Navy Sailors, irradiated at Fukushima while providing humanitarian aid to Japanese victims of the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011. Prime Minister Koizumi attentively listened to severely ill sailors describe in detail illnesses such as Leukemia, Cancers, Tumors and other life threatening health conditions resulting from their exposure to radiation at Fukushima. The nuclear meltdown, with four reactors exploding, was a "man-made" disaster, according to an independent Japanese commission investigating the meltdown. In February of this year, three top officials of TEPCO were indicted on charges of criminal negligence for allegedly failing to take measures to prevent the nuclear disaster resulting in thousands of deaths and injuries.

 

The sailors' lawsuit is based on their participation in Operation Tomodachi (meaning "Friends"), where they provided humanitarian relief after the March 11, 2011 devastation caused by the Earthquake and Tsunami. The class action lawsuit against the Japanese Utility, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), includes more than 400 named injured sailors and a total of 24000 sailor first responders, and a total of up to 75000 affected U.S. personnel and their families. The injured servicemen and women will require treatment for their deteriorating health, medical monitoring, payment of their medical bills, appropriate health monitoring for their children, and monitoring for possible radiation-induced genetic mutations.

 

At one point during his tenure as Prime Minister, Mr. Koizumi enjoyed an 85 percent approval rating. Throughout his term as Prime Minister he was a proponent of nuclear power, but in the wake of the Fukushima disaster of 2011 he was one of the first pro-nuclear politicians to change his conviction to an anti-nuclear position. In explaining his stand, Mr. Koizumi stated, "We should aim to be nuclear–free…and unite toward a dream of achieving a society based on renewable energy."
