Asahi wrote that the GOJ will begin pouring earth and sand into the landfill area at Henoko as early as mid-August, making the ongoing landfill work for Futenma relocation irreversible. The paper speculated that the GOJ is hoping to prevent Futenma relocation from becoming an issue in the gubernatorial election in the fall by making the ongoing FRF construction at Henoko a “fait accompli.” The paper conjectured that the move by the GOJ will put Governor Onaga in a difficult situation because he has consistently expressed strong opposition to the Henoko plan.
