– TV Correspondent in Japan: I’ve come across terrible information — Health situation appears to be “much more risky” than what we see on Japan TV — Doctors and officials hiding the truth (VIDEO) (ENENews, Dec 13, 2013):
Naoto Kan, Former Prime Minister of Japan, Dec. 12, 2013:
At 1:26:00 inJoël Legendre, RTL foreign correspondent: My question is about guidelines, but also health impacts (repeats phrase to translator) health, sanitary, health. I heard recently terrible information about how doctors and local and regional authorities – prefectures, city halls — do not, repeat do not, provide information to the mothers who are trying to make tests for their children about thyroid risk. They are not receiving information from the doctors. There is no information about the exact contamination that is not only spreading on Tohoku, but also on Tokyo. And I would like to know, well there’s so many examples I’m not going to talk about it. But, could you tell us about a time when you were Prime Minister, and if you make a comparison today with what you have with Abe, what type of instruction do you give to the prefectures to the point we can believe that doctors can’t tell the truth to their patients? And are you worried about the future sanitary [health] situation in this country, which apparently is much more risky than what we see on Japanese television.
Naoto Kan, Japan Prime Minister during 3/11: I’m sorry, in regard to the question that you raise, I do not have any specific information.
