A TEPCO official admitted as part of his testimony in the criminal negligence trial of TEPCO execs that they did know of the risk.
4 days before the March 11, 2011 triple disaster TEPCO officials told NISA, the then nuclear regulator that a 15.7 meter tsunami could swamp the nuclear plant. Days later exactly that happened. As reported yesterday, TEPCO knew of this risk in 2008 yet suppressed the information and cancelled a project to build a sea wall at the plant.
This trial would never have taken place without the years long effort of citizens that forced the issue over the objection of government prosecutors.
