(Update 2) Ex-TEPCO Execs Repeat Not Guilty Plea over N-Accident

(Update 2) Ex-TEPCO Execs Repeat Not Guilty Plea over N-Accident

   Tokyo, March 12 (Jiji Press)--Three former executives of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. <9501> reiterated their not guilty plea during a trial on Tuesday over the Japanese company's nuclear accident eight years ago.
   "There was no predictability of a massive tsunami, and it's obvious that they are free from blame," their lawyers said at Tokyo District Court as hearings of the trial ended on Tuesday.
   Presiding Judge Kenichi Nagafuchi said the court will issue rulings on the three--former Chairman Tsunehisa Katsumata, 78, and former Vice Presidents Sakae Muto, 68, and Ichiro Takekuro, 72--on Sept. 19.
   The three did not speak much at the final hearing.
   "I have already said what I should say," Katsumata said. Muto and Takekuro said they have nothing more to say.
