Okinawa Times wrote in a front-page article that the Okinawa prefectural government has decided to file an appeal with the Supreme Court by Dec. 19 on a Fukuoka High Court verdict dismissing Okinawa’s insistence that the central government is required to obtain a permit from the prefectural government for destroying rock reefs off Camp Schwab when moving forward with FRF construction. Earlier this month the court of appeals ruled against the prefectural government, which called for the suspension of the construction operations on account of the absence of such a permit.
