All national papers wrote on Wednesday that the Naha branch of the Fukuoka High Court rejected a suit filed by the Okinawa prefectural government claiming the illegality of the rescindment by the land minister of the Okinawa governor’s cancellation of the landfill permit for the FRF construction off Camp Schwab. The court reportedly dismissed Okinawa’s argument that since the land minister’s action constituted central government “involvement” in municipal affairs, as defined by the Local Autonomy Act, it was illegal. The prefectural government will likely file an appeal with the Supreme Court.
