Yomiuri projected that Land and Transport Minister Ishii will probably issue a stay of execution today to suspend the Okinawa prefectural government’s rescindment of the landfill permit for the FRF construction off Camp Schwab. The minister has reportedly concluded that the ongoing suspension of FRF construction work following the rescindment in mid-August should be ended quickly so as to remove the danger around MCAS Futenma as soon as possible. The Defense Ministry is reportedly expected to resume the construction work soon. According to the daily, the prefectural government is likely to take legal steps to counter the land minister’s move by filing a complaint with a third-party panel under the supervision of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications which is tasked with settling disputes between the central government and local governments.
