Several papers wrote that the Supreme Court on Monday dismissed an appeal filed by a Kadena-based American civilian employee, who requested that his case be transferred to Tokyo by citing concern that a fair trial on the murder charge will be impossible in Okinawa due to potential prejudice against him by citizen judges. As a result of the rejection, the defendant will be tried at the Okinawa District Court.
