The Tokyo District Court acquitted three former Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) executives including former chairman Katsumata. Although it was expected, it is an unconvincing ruling to many people.
It seems that *Jokyu Kokumin is above the law and will not be judged. This is the same as former National Tax Agency Chief Mr. Sagawa in Moritomo Gakuen case. Many people think that it was already decided from the start that he would be found not guilty. The trial is a mere formality and the result had been decided from the start.
Democracy is a mere formality and trials are carried out to convince the people for now. They think that people will forget about the case over time.
It seems that whether a tsunami had been predictable or not was a big issue in the first place. If meltdowns had been caused by not a tsunami but an earthquake, I think such trial itself is a farce. They just go to court even though they have no intension to reveal the truth. I think that such thing had probably continued to be done.
To turn over such a corrupt society, people would have to understand that there is no democratic country in the world.

English translation of a Japanese article: NHK NEWS WEB– September 19, 2019 –
Former Tepco top executives found not guilty over nuclear power plant accident “Tsunami is unpredictable”
In the trial in which former three Tepco top executives had been forcibly indicted over Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, <snip> the Tokyo District Court handed down not a guilty verdict to all of the three.
Those found not guilty are three former executives: former Tepco chairman Tsunehisa Katsumata, 79, former vice presidents Ichiro Takeguro, 73, and Sakae Takefuji, 69.
When the text of judgement was delivered, it caused a booing “No way!” from the courtroom audience and the courtroom was temporarily thrown into a commotion. The designated attorney acting as the prosecutor was set in a grim expression with his hand on the forehead. <snip> Members of the group that filed a lawsuit and brought a charge, which triggered the trial, held a piece of paper with “All found not guilty Unjust ruling” written on it and supporters who gathered together raised their voice, saying “Why? The ruling is unacceptable!”

Japan is a lawless country where judiciary does not work. Judiciary shamelessly says something contradictory: “it is unpredictable” although the topic was questioned in the Diet. In this country, judgement of guilty or acquittal is determined by the distance from the administration.

「福島第1原発事故で勝俣恒久元会長ら旧経営陣3人が業務上過失致死傷罪で強制起訴された裁判で、東京地裁は19日、3被告にいずれも無罪を言い渡した」とのこと。2007年に共産党福島県連からの「福島第1原発は地震による津波で電源を喪失し過酷な事故が起こる」という指摘を無視した勝俣が無罪ですか？— きっこ (@kikko_no_blog) September 19, 2019
It is reported that “in the trial of three former executives of Tokyo Electric Power Co. including former chairman Tsunehisa Katsumata who were accused of professional negligence over the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, the Tokyo District Court acquitted them on 19.” In 2007 the Communist party Fukushima Prefectural chapter pointed out “the possibility that the Fukushima Daiichi power plant will lose power due to earthquake-induced tsunami.” Is Katsumata who ignored it not guilty?

As is expected, Jokyu Kokumin is different from us ordinary people.
