A Japanese civic group on Friday submitted a “letter of accusation” to the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor’s Office towards Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) President Tomoaki Kobayakawa over the discharge of Fukushima nuclear-contaminated wastewater into the Pacific Ocean.

The letter says that there are nonetheless radioactive components that can’t be faraway from the Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS), a multi-nuclide removing system that removes numerous radioactive supplies from contaminated water.

Japan’s discharge plan is extraordinarily severe, mentioned a spokesperson for the civic group at a press convention in Tokyo on Friday, after the letter was submitted.
