Japan ‘scared’ of telling truth to Fukushima evacuees, ABC Australia, September 28, 2011:

Professor Kenichi Matsumoto says the government is too scared to tell people they cannot return to Fukushima

[...] Former special adviser to Japan’s prime minister and cabinet Kenichi Matsumoto has told the ABC that the government has known for months that many who live close to the Fukushima plant will not be able to return to their homes for 10 to 20 years because of contamination. [...]

He says the government is simply too scared to tell Fukushima residents that they cannot return. [...]

“The government should have conveyed the truth to the evacuees. But it felt scared; it feared telling the truth to the people.” [...]
