Prosecutors probe execs of Fukushima operator Tepco -Jiji
TOKYO Aug 1 (Reuters) - Prosecutors have begun a probe of executives of Fukushima nuclear plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co and government officials after accepting complaints over the March 2011 disaster, Jiji news agency said on Wednesday.
A report last month by a panel of experts appointed by parliament concluded that radiation crisis that was triggered by the earthquake and tsunami could have been prevented, and that a failure to take adequate precautions at the plant was the result of "collusion" among the government, regulators and the plant operator, known as Tepco.
