    How Fukushima triggered Germany's nuclear phaseout

    The Fukushima nuclear disaster shook the belief in safe nuclear power to its core. For Germany, it marked a historic turning point for environmentalism.

    Biblis was one of more than 20 German nuclear power plants that have been closed down

    On March 11, 2011, one of the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded triggered a tsunami off Japan's Pacific coast. The gigantic waves rolled over the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, knocking out the cooling system and causing a meltdown in three of its six reactors. It was the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986.

    But the important difference between the two disasters is Japan's reputation as a high-tech country with high security standards. That difference is one that has made even avid supporters of nuclear energy second-guess themselves.

    They included Angela Merkel, a trained physicist who believed in the peaceful use of nuclear energy. She had even attacked the center-left coalition government of her predecessor, Gerhard Schröder, for deciding to phase out atomic power.

    "I will always consider it absurd to shut down technologically safe nuclear power plants that don't emit CO2," she said in 2006.

    In 2011, Merkel and Environment Minister Norbert Röttgen negotiated the nuclear phaseout

    But Fukushima changed her mind: Three days after the disaster, a subdued Merkel announced that Germany would be suspending its recently approved extension of the operating lives of nuclear power plants following the "unimaginable catastrophe" in Japan.

    The political fallout in Germany

    In only a matter of weeks, the political momentum unleashed by Fukushima became palpable. Merkel's close ally and a big supporter of atomic energy, Stefan Mappus, lost as the incumbent state premier in Baden-Württemberg to Winfried Kretschmann of the Green party. It was a political first for the anti-nuclear party, and in a conservative state, no less.

    Three months later, the German parliament voted to phase out atomic energy by the end of 2022. But energy companies sued the government for damages. It took nearly 10 more years for both sides to agree to damages worth €2.4 billion ($2.86 billion,) with taxpayers footing the bill for Merkel's phaseout detour.

    In 2001, Chancellor Gerhard Schröder (right) negotiated the phaseout of atomic power

    Climate-friendly nuclear power?

    A number of governments, such as those of France, the UK, and the United States, consider nuclear energy, with its low CO2 emissions, as a tool in slowing climate change. And the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) agrees.

    But the idea that nuclear energy can help the climate is an "illusion," according to Jochen Flasbarth, deputy minister of Germany's Environment Ministry. For one, nuclear only makes up roughly 5% of the world's energy supply.

    "In truth, it's not an energy supply that can be sustained in the future. These countries are faced with losing a connection to a truly sustainable renewable energy sector," he said.

    Nuclear power losing out to renewables

    Dirk Uwe Sauer, who chairs the Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage System research group at RWTH Aachen University, said atomic energy wasn't worth it in the long run.

    "In countries with liberalized energy markets, nuclear power plants only come about with state guarantees for the financial risks," he said, pointing to France and Finland.

    Plus, Flasbarth said, nuclear energy can't compete with solar or wind energy when it comes to cost — and that trend is expected to continue.

    "Renewable energy is becoming cheaper and cheaper, while nuclear is becoming more and more expensive," he said.

    Flasbarth also sees little chance of nuclear energy making inroads elsewhere: "How is that supposed to work in developing countries when even highly industrialized countries with advanced technologies are having difficulty, first of all, mastering the technology, and, second of all, building plants within a reasonable amount of time at a reasonable cost?"

    There could be other reasons why governments might, pursue atomic energy, said Wolfram König, the president of the Federal Office for the Safety of Nuclear Waste Management.

    "In the past, the civilian use of this technology has always been coupled with the question of usability for the military," König said. From this comes the danger that this technology could be "used in not exactly the most stable political systems."

    Historic political consensus

    As Germany fast approaches its goals of phasing out nuclear energy by the end of 2022 and coal by 2038, renewable energy must be expanded fast. As Sauer sees it, the goals are attainable within that time period, but the implementation is still too slow. He wants to see "significantly more ambitious goals."

    Fukushima led to a major decision in Germany that hardly anyone questions now. Flasbarth calls it "one of the greatest contributions to consensus-building in Germany's postwar history."

    Still, the topic arises from time to time. A position paper of the CDU's federal committee for economic affairs, jobs and taxes, for example, cautiously calls for the examination of "atomic energy projects and smaller modular reactors without prejudice." But it doesn't go so far as to call for new nuclear plants.

    In fact, the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) is the only major party calling for a return to nuclear power, citing concerns over the energy supply. The party also contends that electricity has been too heavily taxed during the energy transition. But nuclear energy doesn't seem to be a winning topic for the AfD: There's no mention of it in the upcoming state election campaign programs.

    Mark Hauptmann: Third conservative politician in Germany resigns over corruption allegations

    A third politician from German Chancellor Angela Merkel's ruling bloc has resigned over allegations of corruption.

    Mark Hauptmann, from the centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU), faced allegations that he had received payments from the government of Azerbaijan.

    The Thuringia MP has denied the accusations of lobbying but announced that he would be stepping down from his position.

    "I want to protect my family," Hauptmann told the German daily Die Welt, adding that he was resigning because of the criticism.

    "I have never received money, and there has never been any influence on my political actions," he said.

    It comes just days after two other members of Merkel's conservative bloc resigned amid allegations they profited from brokering deals to procure face masks early in the pandemic.

    The CDU party has seen its support dip in recent opinion polls ahead of crucial state elections in Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate on Sunday.

    Chancellor Merkel has backed the efforts of the parliamentary group to clear up the affair of corruption and lobbying by members of the Bundestag.

    "The federal government's ability to act is not affected by this," said government spokesperson Steffen Seibert.

    The CDU is expected to lose in the two southwestern regions where nearly 11 million voters are set to renew their regional parliaments, just six months ahead of parliamentary elections to choose Merkel's successor as chancellor.

    Own wurst enemy: Burglar's bite of a sausage helps police trace him nine years later

    The burglar appeared to have taken a bit out of the sausage during thr robbery. - Copyright Polizei NRW Ennepe-Ruhr-Kreis

    German police say they have solved a nine-year-old burglary using DNA on a half-eaten piece of sausage.

    Authorities in the western town of Schwelm say the evidence matched a man in France, who had recently been detained for a separate "violent crime".

    The burglary took place at a flat in Rocholzallee in Gevelsberg in March 2012.

    The sausage, which belonged to the victim, was found as evidence by police after the burglar appeared to have let his hunger get the better of him during the raid.

    "While securing evidence at the scene of the crime, detectives found a piece of sausage that had been bitten into, on which DNA could be found," police said in a statement.

    At the time the DNA did not return any matches, but authorities were later alerted to a suspect after the data was compared with international criminal databases.

    "The perpetrator was, therefore, a 30-year-old man from Albania," police said. "His DNA was entered into a database in France this year after a violent crime."

    But Schwelm police said the suspect remains free and he may escape punishment for the burglary because the statute of limitations - the maximum time allowed for legal proceedings to be started after a crime - has expired.

    Germany, France and Italy suspend use of AstraZeneca's COVID vaccine over blood clotting fears

    Europe's medicines regulator said on Monday that it believes the benefits of vaccinations with AstraZeneca "outweigh the risk of side effects" after Germany, France and Italy suspended the use of the jab.

    Since last week, more than 10 European countries have halted the use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over reports that vaccinated people have developed serious blood clotting issues.

    The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said in a statement on Monday afternoon that it has been in contact with AstraZeneca, experts in blood disorders and other health authorities — including in the UK where 11 million people have received a dose of the jab — to carry out a "rigorous analysis of all the data related to thromboembolic events" in the coming days.

    It stated that the number of such events in vaccinated people "seems not to be higher than that seen in the general population".

    "While its investigation is ongoing, EMA currently remains of the view that the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine in preventing COVID-19, with its associated risk of hospitalisation and death, outweigh the risks of side effects," it added.

    The EMA's safety committee is to issue further information on Tuesday while and an extraordinary meeting is to be held on Thursday to "conclude on the information gathered and any further actions that may need to be taken".

    The World Health Organisation (WHO)'s Advisory Committee on Vaccines will also meet tomorrow, Dr Tedros Aghanom Grebreyesus told reporters on Monday.

    Germany, France, Italy latest to suspend AstraZeneca

    The EMA and WHO's announcement comes just hours after Germany, France, and Italy joined a growing list of European countries that have temporarily suspended the use of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine.

    Germany's health ministry said it was a precautionary step based on a recommendation from the national medicines regulator, the Paul Ehrlich Institute.

    "Following reports of cerebral vein thrombosis in connection with the vaccination in Germany and Europe, the Paul Ehrlich Institute considers further investigations to be necessary," the health ministry said on Twitter.

    "The European Medicines Agency (EMA) will decide whether and how the new findings will affect the approval of the vaccine," it added.

    Germany is the EU country that has so far administered the most doses of COVID-19 vaccines to its population. As of March 14, more than 6.5 million had received at least one dose of a vaccine and 2.8 million had been fully vaccinated, according to the Robert Koch Institute.

    The country has so far used just under half of the 12.5 million doses it has received, of which just over 3 million are from AstraZeneca.

    Germany's announcement was quickly followed by similar ones issued from Paris and Rome.

    French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine was suspended until the EMA issues its recommendation on Tuesday afternoon

    He said he hopes AstraZeneca vaccinations in the country can "soon" resume.

    Italy's medicines regulator, AIFA, also said the suspension was a "precautionary and temporary measure" pending the EMA's recommendation.
    Ireland and Netherlands also suspend the use of AstraZeneca's jab

    Over the weekend Ireland and the Netherlands both suspended the use of the AstraZeneca jab saying the measure was a precaution and would be in place for two weeks.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has said there was no link between the jab and an increased risk of developing a clot, adding countries should not stop the use of AstraZeneca's vaccine.

    Last Wednesday the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said there is currently no evidence to link the vaccine to illnesses developed by two people in Austria who had been inoculated.

    "It has not been concluded that there is a link between the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca and these cases" of blood clotting, Dr Ronan Glynn, Ireland's Deputy Chief Medical Officer said in a statement.

    "However, acting on the precautionary principle, and pending receipt of further information, the NIAC [National Immunisation Advisory Committee] has recommended the temporary deferral of the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca vaccination programme in Ireland," he added.

    The health ministry in the Netherlands said the move followed six new reports in Denmark and Norway of blood clotting and lowered levels of blood platelets in people aged under 50.

    The Dutch medicines authority also stressed that no link has been proven between the cases and the vaccine.

    The health ministry added that no cases had been reported in the Netherlands.

    What does AstraZeneca say?

    A review of the safety data from over 17 million people vaccinated with the jab in the UK and EU has not shown any evidence of an increased risk of blood clots, AstraZeneca Plc said on Sunday.

    "A careful review of all available safety data of more than 17 million people vaccinated in the European Union and UK with COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca has shown no evidence of an increased risk of pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis or thrombocytopenia, in any defined age group, gender, batch or in any particular country," the vaccine producer said.

    It comes a day after the pharmaceutical company announced further cuts to deliveries of its COVID-19 vaccine to the European Union, citing export restrictions for the move.

    "AstraZeneca regrets to announce a reduction in deliveries of the COVID-19 vaccine to the European Union despite working tirelessly to accelerate supply," AFP news agency cited a spokesman as saying.

    Faced with production difficulties, the group had decided to use its production sites outside the EU to make deliveries for the bloc, but "unfortunately, export restrictions will reduce deliveries in the first quarter" and "likely" in the second, he added.

    The company aims to deliver 100 million doses in the first half of the year — 30 million in the first quarter and 70 million in the second.

    The European Commission, which negotiated vaccine contracts on behalf of its 27 member states, has been heavily criticised for slow deliveries in Europe.

    It aims to vaccinate 70% of citizens by the end of the summer.

    AstraZeneca announced at the end of January that it would only be able to deliver 40 million doses to the EU27 in the first quarter of the year out of the 120 million it had initially promised, due to manufacturing difficulties at a Belgian plant.

    Austrian health authorities had suspended the use of a batch of AstraZeneca vaccine last Sunday after a 49-year old woman died as a result of multiple thromboses — formation of blood clots within blood vessels — 10 days after being administered the jab. A 35-year-old was also hospitalised for a pulmonary embolism after receiving a vaccine from the same batch.

    Estonia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia also suspended the use of the batch.

    Denmark and Norway then announced they were suspending the use of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine amid reports of blood clotting in some people who received the jab.

    Health authorities said it was a step taken as a "precaution" with no direct link yet between the clots and the jab.

    But it's yet more negative publicity for AstraZeneca, the Swedish-British multinational pharmaceutical company, already under the spotlight over vaccine production delays and the efficacy of its jab, which is produced with the University of Oxford.

    Cảnh sát truy nã băng đảng buôn người Đức - Việt


    Cảnh sát liên bang đã làm một cuộc truy nã các băng đảng buôn người ở tỉnh Lichtenberg (*). Một người phụ nữ bị cáo buộc là chủ chốt băng đảng đã bị bắt.

    Berlin. Lúc cảnh sát liên bang ập vào căn nhà nằm trên tầng thứ bảy ở một cao ốc trên đại lộ Landsberg vào sáng sớm thứ Tư, cũng là lúc có cuộc truy lùng tương tự ở những địa chỉ khác. 160 viên chức khám xét 6 ổ ở Berlin và 2 ổ nữa ở vùng Bắc Đức. Cuộc truy lùng nhắm vào các băng đảng buôn người Đức - Việt. Những cuộc điều tra các nghi phạm liên quan đến cáo buộc buôn người sang đây làm việc đã được thực hiện hơn một năm. Ngoài ra còn có các vụ làm giấy tờ hôn thú giả, nhận cha con giả để bán giấy phép cư trú.

    Tòa nhà cao ốc ở đại lộ Landsberg có hơn 170 bảng tên được cho là căn cứ địa, một "Safehouse" của băng đảng buôn người Việt. Họ cho những người Việt sang đây cư ngụ tại đó, không có hợp đồng thuê nhà lẫn giấy phép cư trú. Một người sống trong cao ốc nói với tờ Bưu Điện Buổi Sáng Berlin rằng: "Chuyện này ở đây ai cũng biết hết". Nhóm thanh tra tin rằng từ căn cứ địa này, đặc biệt là phụ nữ sẽ được gởi đến làm việc trong các tiệm massage, tiệm làm móng tay và bị ép mãi dâm. Việc mãi dâm cũng xảy ra trong vài căn nhà chứa ngay tại cao ốc này và ở những địa điểm khác.

    Truy lùng băng đảng Mafia buôn người: nghi phạm chính đã từng ngồi tù

    Nghi phạm chính là một người phụ nữ 43 tuổi người Việt Nam tên L. Cô này cùng với một phụ nữ Việt nữa 25 tuổi và một người đàn ông Đức 64 tuổi đã tổ chức cả đường dây này. Họ bị cáo buộc buôn phụ nữ Việt Nam qua ngã Ba Lan đến Đức rồi ép hành nghề mãi dâm. Những người phụ nữ đó mãi dâm để trả dần lại số tiền đường cho cô 43 tuổi.

    Theo lời công tố viên vào chiều thứ Tư rằng đã có trác tòa ra lệnh bắt giam tại chỗ người phụ nữ 43 tuổi trong ngôi nhà chứa ở đại lộ Landsberg thuộc tỉnh Lichtenberg: "Nghi phạm chính hiện đang trong giai đoạn bị thẩm tra". Người phụ nữ này từng có tiền án buôn người và từng ngồi tù nhiều năm rồi. Cô này có kinh nghiệm hầu cảnh sát. Trong lúc bắt tại nhà có vài người lớn và trẻ con.

    Truy lùng ở Berlin: cảnh sát khám xét nhà chứa ở Lichtenberg

    Một nhà chứa trá hình dưới tiệm Massage trên đường Möllendorff ở tỉnh Lichtenberg và một ngôi nhà nữa ở đường Zum Hechtgraben thuộc Hohenschönhauseen cũng bị khám xét. Một phát ngôn viên cảnh sát liên bang cho hay vào sáng nay rằng "chúng tôi nhận được tin rằng hai chỗ này cũng được xử dụng làm nhà chứa". Cảnh sát liên bang cũng có những cuộc truy lùng khác ở khu trung tâm Berlin, thành phố tiểu bang Hamburg và thành phố Timemendorfer Strand thuộc tiểu bang Schleswig-Holstein.

    Ở tất cả các điểm bị khám xét, những người ở đó đều không có tình trạng cư trú rõ ràng, một người phụ nữ còn sở hữu cả một sổ thông hành giả.

    Nghi phạm người Đức có tham gia trong đường dây làm cha giả

    Nghi phạm người Đức được cho là chủ một tiệm massage ở đường Möllendorffstraße. Công tố viên tin rằng ông này có thể là cò. Trước kia chủ tiệm này cũng là cô nghi phạm tên L. Trong tiệm massage cũng có một nhà chứa. Lúc sáng sớm cảnh sát ập vào khám xét, tại chỗ còn có một người nữa nhưng trốn thoát được khi cô này biết có cảnh sát đến.

    Cảnh sát cũng lần theo nguồn tin rằng ông người Đức này có thể tham gia vào vụ làm giấy tờ cha giả. Trong đường dây này, các sản phụ phải trả cho ông cha giả người Đức này một số tiền lớn để nhận được quyền ở lại Đức.

    Các nguồn tin tức về vụ các phụ nữ Việt Nam đem sang ép bán dâm được truy từ những cuộc điều tra khác và từ những người báo tin nặc danh. Trong lúc khám xét các công tố viên đã tịch thu nhiều bằng chứng như giấy tờ, điện thoại di động, computer và các dĩa chứa dữ liệu cũng như thẻ căn cước. Ngoài ra họ cũng thu giữ hơn 7000 euro tiền mặt và 400 gram được nghi là thuốc mê. Bằng chứng hiện đang được giám định, cuộc điều tra tiến hành.

    Cơ quan tội phạm hình sự liên bang: Mạng lưới buôn người làm việc trên toàn cõi Châu Âu

    Theo Cơ quan tội phạm hình sự liên bang ước lượng, Berlin được cho là nơi tổ chức các đường dây buôn người trên toàn cõi Tây Âu. Khu kỹ nghệ và thương mại ở tỉnh Lichtenberg cũng là nơi có nhiều thương gia gốc Việt cư ngụ đóng vai trò quan trọng, ông Carsten Moritz, trưởng ban đặc vụ buôn người trong Cơ quan tội phạm hình sự liên bang (BKA) mới đây đã nói với đài RBB. Trong chợ Đồng Xuân được bày bán các sản phẩm Á Châu. Bên cạnh các nhà hàng còn có các tiệm cắt tóc và làm móng tay trong khu chợ này.

    Theo cơ quan tội phạm hình sự liên bang, đứng phía sau các đường dây buôn người "là một mạng lưới khổng lồ" "hoạt động trên toàn cõi Châu Âu" và có "con số doanh thu rất lớn". Ở Đức có nhiều nhóm người gốc Việt đã trải rộng ra trên toàn liên bang hoạt động trong đường dây buôn người và bóc lột lao động.

    Ông Norbert Cioma, chủ tọa của nghiệp đoàn cảnh sát Berlin bình luận cuộc truy lùng vừa qua rằng, "Đây là một dấu hiệu tốt cho thấy chúng ta không chỉ theo dõi nhóm người ăn chơi trên chính trường và phô trương trên truyền thông. Mà chúng ta không bao giờ được phép lãng quên phân phối nhân sự cho lãnh vực theo dõi các đường dây tội phạm hình sự, bởi còn các cao thủ vẫn đang phạm trọng tội bên loại tội phạm hình sự có tổ chức".
