Conscientious Japanese citizens are bewildered by the widening gap between the ongoing Olympic preparations
and the increasing report regarding the deepening of the Fukushima crisis.The Moritomo School scandal continues to draw nation-wide
attention,reminding us of its similarity with the total breach of the initial commitments by the Tokyo Olympics.
Six years after the 3/11 Fukushima accident,the policy of returning refugees to their home towns based on the 20 milisieverts ICRP standard.
Last week,Japanese television TBS interviewed its vice chairman Jacques Rochard who expressed his surprise that this standard,destined to emergency,
should not have been lowered as initially recommended.It is urgently needed to correct the current policy.
The foregoing is fully supported by the following two articles.
We are being reminded of Chinese ancient Lao Tsu’s famous saying “Heaven’s venfeance is slow,but sure”.
This is the will of heavens and the earth that is to say,the law of history researched by philosophy.
It does not allow immorality to last long.
Please allow me to count on your support.
With warmest regards,
Former Ambassador to Switzerland
