NHK reported online that today marked the second anniversary of the murder of an Okinawa woman by U.S. base worker Kenneth Shinzato, noting that the victim’s father released a comment expressing his unabated grief over the loss of his daughter, who was only 20 years old at the time. The report also took up remarks made this morning by Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga, who commented on the bereaved family’s request for compensation filed with the GOJ and the USG. The government spokesman was quoted as saying: “We would like to make utmost efforts in good faith. Consultations are still underway at various levels between the U.S. side and the Defense Ministry and Foreign Ministry. We will continue to cooperate with the United States to create a solid mechanism to prevent such a tragedy from happening again.”
