TEPCO President Naomi Hirose was ordered not to use the term "felt down"

Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) President Naomi Hirose has blamed then Prime Minister Naoto Kan for prohibiting him from using the phrase “felt down” to his wife after an evening session at kyabakura in 2011.

“I’m furious I wasn’t allowed to use the term ‘felt down’, it was really eating away at my conscience,” Hirose told a press conference gathering.

TEPCO has constantly blamed the then government for insisting Hirose be involved in the cover-up by not using the exact terminology for his actions.

“As soon as the incident happened I was desperate to inform my family of the exact details of the event but unfortunately the government used their powers of influence to force me to withhold information,” said Hirose.

The Prime Minister’s office directly warned Hirose not to use the phrase “felt down” when talking with his wife and family, although there has been no evidence provided.

The TEPCO President has also made it clear that he holds the then DPJ government responsible for his parents giving him a girl’s name, Naomi.
