Ryukyu Shimpo wrote that it learned from a GOJ source on Aug. 25 that the GOJ has decided to postpone the resumption of land-based construction work at Camp Schwab until after Sep. 16 when the Naha branch of the Fukuoka High Court is expected to rule on the dispute between the GOJ and Okinawa Prefecture over landfill work at Henoko. According to the source, the central government had originally planned to resume the land-based work by the end of August on the grounds that it is not directly related to the landfill work at Henoko. The paper speculated that the postponement is intended to prevent the work from having an impact on the court ruling.
