AUG 28, 2021 — 

Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has decided to dump contaminated water into the ocean through a tunnel 1km offshore. 
A senior official from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) said, “If we dumped the contaminated water on the coast, the media would take video and photos of us dumping it, but if we dumped it on the ocean floor one kilometer off the coast, we wouldn’t have to worry about that, which would make a difference in terms of rumors.

The Japan National Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives issued a statement of firm opposition to the project (8.25).
“Fishermen across Japan reiterate their firm opposition to the release of ALPS treated water into the ocean.”

The South Korean government has expressed “strong regret” over Japan’s decision to release contaminated water into the ocean about 1km off the coast of the Fukushima nuclear power plant (8.25)

The Chinese government accused Japan of “making the wrong decision to release contaminated water without regard for opposition at home and abroad, and then repeating the mistake” (8.26)

The Taiwanese government announced that it would continue to monitor the situation from various angles across ministries and agencies to ensure the rights and interests of fishermen (Aug. 26)
