Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo front-paged reports on Wednesday’s ruling by the Naha branch of the Fukuoka High Court rejecting a suit filed by the Okinawa Prefectural Government claiming that the land minister’s rescindment of the Okinawa governor’s cancellation of the landfill permit for the FRF construction at Henoko was illegal. Okinawa Governor Tamaki told reporters that he was very disappointed by the ruling. The governor added that the court decision is unacceptable and the prefectural government will consider whether to file an appeal with the Supreme Court after closely examining the ruling.
