The “Black” Money by Tokyo Electric Power Corporation

Since the nuclear disaster occurred, some scholars in Japan began to question the behavior of Tokyo Electric Power Corporation (Tepco) over the years. One of the scholars is Teruaki Georges Sumioka of Osaka Art University who published his article at Insight Now! (http://www.insightnow.jp/article/6430) on 27 March 2011. Dr. Sumioka disclosed that the most prestigious university in Japan, University of Tokyo, has been bribed (in name of donations in public) by Tepco providing than 86 lectures series for total 500 million yen (regarding the donation to the University of Tokyo lecture series data in details: see, http://www.u-tokyo.ac.jp/res01/pdf/20110301kifu.pdf). The University of Tokyo is just the tip of the iceberg. Tepco’s money went to other universities, such as Keio University and Tokyo Institute of Technology. However, Nagasaki University (medical school) rejected the “black” money (about 90,000,000 yen) from Tepco after the election of new college president in Nagasaki.
