TEPCO president fell sick amid troubles at its nuke plant
När VD jobbet innebär mer än att spela golf med “kunder”, gå på gym med PT och äta lunch på Genyadana Hamadaya. När det blåser snålt är ledningen upptagna med att hitta någon att skylla på. Samma gäller ledningar världen över, men i Japan gråter de i alla fall ut offentligt.
“Masataka Shimizu, president of Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the crisis-hit Fukushima nuclear plant, fell sick March 16 and took some days off from the liaison office between the government and the utility firm, TEPCO officials said Sunday. While Shimizu was away from the office set up at the firm’s headquarters, he collected information and issued instructions from a different room of the headquarters building to address the troubles at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station hit by the March 11 quake and subsequent tsunami, the officials said. He has already recovered and come back to work at the liaison office, they said. A TEPCO spokesperson declined to elaborate on his health condition, but said he did not fall over or need to be hooked up to an intravenous drip. Shimizu has not appeared in public since attending a press conference on March 13, two days after the catastrophe that wreaked havoc on northeastern and eastern Japan.” (Kyodo)
