1932 Chisso Co Ltd began dumping toxic mercury into the Minimata bay.
Our economy is at risk, burn all evidence. No one finds out about this.
The methyl was then absorbed by the fish which caused them to die and wash up on the shore.
In 1953, people complaint about an unknown strange sickness that caused them to feel dizzy and their speech to slur. Slowly people began to die.
Dishonor on your family, and most importantly you!!
Please take all the money!
A doctor at Chisso Co Ltd discovered mercury from Chisso's factory waste was the cause of the Minimata disease. Instead of fixing the problem, Chisso hid the evidence!
In late 1966, the Japanese government found a link between eating the fish from the minimata bay and the minimata disease. The chisso company also stopped dumping mercury into the minimata bay.
In 1995, Japans Supreme Court found the president of the Chisso Minimata factory guilty of causing the minimata disater. Chisso payed 494 billion Japanese yen for the people that suffered and to clean out the sea.
