Japanese media: Japanese government treats UN nuclear accident investigation requirements with double standards

   China News Service, July 3 According to Kyodo News on the 2nd, the Japanese government did not respond to the request of the United Nations Special Rapporteur to investigate the damage caused by the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan and actually put it on hold.

On the other hand, rapporteurs whose survey topics are favorable to the Japanese government have been received, and there are more and more opinions criticizing this “double standard” (human rights group language) practice.
