I have been discussing this with him for 1000+ days and in NZ we import New and Second hand cars and machinery making this Very significant.This is my latest letter to the Prime Minister of N.Z. John Key.
firstname.lastname@example.org . and the Minister of Primary Industries 'email@example.com'
( I have sent MANY! lol) concerning Fukushima Daiichi. I have used this link as my latest example!
Wish me luck and feel free to send the Bastard an email as well. One thing is for sure, he will kow tow to the Japanese government like a subservient Geisha Girl.
I write to you again with regard to the Triple Melt downs at Fukushima Daiichi and the ongoing risks associated with the importation of food products and second hand equipment from Japan.
Whilst following this issue closely in the media I have yet to see any reports of contaminated produce or vehicles coming into NZ but have seen numerous reports from Korea, Russia, India, Pakistan and further afield. See attached link; http://www.nation.com.pk/.../pakistan-may-ban-japan...
Do you or the Minister of Primary Industries have any up to date information on this matter and have we given this issue any further consideration?
“Almost three years back in April 2011, Pakistan Nuclear Regulatory Authority had directed authorities dealing with Cargo arriving directly or indirectly from Japan to screen all types of consignments including edible/non-edible, for radiation.
The directives were issued from the country's well-reputed institution Pakistan Nuclear Regulatory Authority (PNRA) following serious crisis of Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. The PNRA made clearance mandatory for every consignment being imported from Japan.”
“It is worthy of mentioning here that country's nuclear scientists had advised the federal government three years back to halt all types of goods from Japan to minimize the threat of radiation following the Fukushima Nuclear Crisis in Japan. The scientists had advised the government after they detected high level of Iodine from the consignments imported from Japan.
Although India, Pakistan's immediate neighbor, had banned imports from Japan following the Fukushima Nuclear Plant tragedy, yet keeping in view that the move to ban imports from Japan may hurt bilateral relationship between the two friendly countries, the Pakistani government never imposed ban on import of goods from Japan.”
Sir, I sincerely hope that the Issue of Bilateral relations between our two nations do not influence the approach to dealing with the risks that foodstuffs and equipment from Japan pose to both the people and the ecology of New Zealand.
Should contamination from the Fukushima Daiichi disaster infiltrate the N.Z. ecology and food chain our primary Industries and subsequently our economy could be severely affected.
I look forward to hearing from you on the above matters and any information you have concerning prior detection of radioactive foodstuffs or equipment that have been detected enroute to N.Z .
