The following is an excerpt of an exclusive interview with Tsunehisa Katsumata, chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Co.
Q: Did you plan countermeasures to take if the crisis got worse?
A: It is a difficult legal issue for the company to order its staff to stay at the plant when all of them could die. We cannot give them an order that might lead to their deaths if the situation gets worse, and there is no legislation to deal with such a situation.
