Police to Send 150 Officers, Riot Squads to Tepco Meeting

June 7 (Bloomberg)

Japan’s National Police Agency will send 150 officers and riot squads to Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s annual general meeting this month to quell possible protests by shareholders and terror attacks, a police official said.

About 7,000 shareholders are expected to attend the June 28 meeting, said the official, who declined to be identified, citing the agency’s policy. Residents from Fukushima, where Tokyo Electric’s crippled nuclear plant lies, may stage demonstrations, the official said. Officers and riot police will be stationed around the Prince Park Tower Tokyo Hotel, the venue for the shareholder meeting, the official said.
