Japanese distrust government on nukes

2011-05-30 08:58
Tokyo - A new poll shows that more than three quarters of Japanese voters do not trust government information on the country's nuclear crisis.

Eighty-one percent of respondents to the survey by Fuji Television Network said they did not trust government information on the crisis at the tsunami-hit Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami damaged the plant's cooling systems, causing the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl.

Nearly 85% of respondents said the utility that operates the plant is dealing with the crisis poorly.

The poll was conducted May 28-29 and had 1 000 responses. No margin of error was given, but a poll of that size would normally have a margin of error of 4 percentage points.

The survey's results were released on Monday.
