ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) regarded the radioactive water leaks from the Fukushima Daiichi reactors as zero in the legal term in Japan because it is a state of emergency. It says that the agency plans to continue to regard any intentional release or future leak as zero. According to NISA, its priority has been dealing with the accident and mentioned that radioactive leaks could not be prevented at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. The failure of Japanese regulators and politicians to make honest reporting as the country moves from control to clean-up is also discussed.
