Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo reported that Governor Onaga plans to hold a press conference this evening and announce his intention to sue the central government for failing to obtain a permit for destroying rock reefs off Camp Schwab, which the prefectural government claims is essential for building the Futenma replacement facility. The governor is expected to file the suit pending the prefectural assembly’s endorsement of a relevant motion to be submitted by the prefectural government later this month. The assembly is likely to endorse the motion on July 14. The governor is also set to file a separate suit seeking a court stay of the ongoing bank protection work.
