de Vidy, 1007 Lausanne / Switzerland
Tokyo, July 19, 2015
Dear President Thomas Bach,
With reference to my letter addressed to you dated 15 June,2015,
I wish to inform you that Dr.Andreas Nidecker, Co-Founder of the
IPPNW-Switzerland, has sent me a very constructive proposal as regards the Tokyo Olympic Games.
He recommends that the Japanese Government cancels the 2020
Olympic Games in order to consecrate maximum efforts to cope with the
Fukushima accident, announcing at the same time its candidature for
2028 or 2032 Games. He considers this as a highly responsible decision
and that it will be regarded as an honorable retreat. I heartily
support this opportune and appropriate proposal and have conveyed it to
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe yesterday.
I wish to inform you of a new serious crisis confronting Japan, emanating from the molten fuel rods at the Fukushima Daiichi.
I am pleading for the verification of the presence of dreadful neutron
and tritium radiation disseminated throughout Japan, as explained in my
attached letter addressed to His Holiness Pope Francis. What is
urgently needed is the verification for the whole Japan by an
international team of experts.
Please allow me to count on your understanding and support.
With highest regards,
Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland
