Former assistants in Takahama-cho, Fukui Prefecture, who gave large amounts of money to executives of Kansai Electric Power received large amounts of compensation from at least three companies that undertook nuclear power-related construction and security. Interviews with relevant parties revealed that sales increased significantly due to receiving orders for safety measures work following the restart of the nuclear power plant after the disaster. A large amount of nuclear power was concentrated in the former assistant company.

Former executives of Kansai Electric Power Co., Ltd. said, “If we built a close relationship with a former assistant who seizes local contractors in the wake of the rapid increase in safety measures after the earthquake, we believe that nuclear power management will be successful and construction will proceed smoothly. Was n’t it? ”
Kansai Electric Power Co., Ltd. has explained that “the ordering process and the contract amount were appropriate” for reasons of consideration for the location of the nuclear power plant, but the third-party committees created by lawyers have problems in ordering construction work, etc. It is a policy to investigate again whether there was.

Kansai Electric Power has been investing 545.7 billion yen in safety measures so far only at the Takahama nuclear power plant in order to restart the nuclear power plant in response to the new regulatory standards after the earthquake.
Former assistant Moriyama had previously served as a consultant and advisor at at least four companies, but these companies received orders for safety measures construction related to the restart of the nuclear power plant, and sales increased significantly, and a large amount of nuclear money was the former assistant.

New testimony 3: Local prefectural assembly
A member of the Fukui Prefecture Ishikawa Yosanichi Prefectural Councilor, who knows Motoyama Moriyama, responded to NHK ’s interview, “I refused, but a contractor who wanted to undertake Kansai Electric's work had asked me to help Ms. Moriyama. It was revealed.

Kanden Iwane President “Major impact on restart”
Mr. Shigeki Iwane, President of Kansai Electric Power Company, said at the press conference on the 2nd of this month about the reason why the uncertain relationship with former assistant Moriyama continued. I wanted to avoid deteriorating the relationship with. "
The survey report published by Kansai Electric Power also states the fact that Mr. Moriyama was strongly aware of the existence of the assistant for the restart of the nuclear power plant.
“If a local influential person like Mr. Moriyama turns around once, it may have a serious impact on nuclear power management and restart.”
“If Mr. Moriyama's mood is impaired, Mr. Moriyama exercises various influences in the region and there is a risk of taking action that interferes with the operation of the power plant.”
“Especially, after the Great East Japan Earthquake, it was an urgent issue to realize the early restart of the nuclear power plant, and the frequency of responding to Mr. Moriyama increased as large-scale safety measures were being developed at each power plant.”
It has become clear that Naka Kansai Electric Power has reported information such as the estimated amount of construction to former assistants in over 70% of the work that the Nuclear Power Division ordered from Yoshida Development during the four years until Otosato. However, Kansai Electric Power explained that the ordering process and contract amount were appropriate because of consideration for the location of the nuclear power plant.
Third-party committee Investigation points

Expert "Kanden misread the times"
Associate professor Takefumi Inoue of Toyo University who is familiar with the relationship between nuclear power and the local economy said, “There is no problem with the mechanism of the power company's ordering construction related to the nuclear power plant to local companies for coexistence with the local community. “We had too much work in one of the leading companies, and we should have quickly realized that it was bad for us to rely on one person.”
After that, “After the earthquake, people's trust in the nuclear power plant has fluctuated, and it is no longer the time to move the nuclear power plant if only local understanding is obtained. It may have been a mistake, and this issue may further reduce the trust in the nuclear power plant and have a major impact on future promotion. "
