The Saturday editions of the two major Okinawa papers wrote that the Okinawa Defense Bureau resumed on Friday the transplantation off Camp Schwab of coral reefs for the FRF construction after the agriculture minister issued a stay of execution on Thursday in response to Governor Tamaki’s revocation of the permit for transplantation. According to the articles, the governor immediately issued administrative guidance calling for the operation to be halted on the grounds that it violates the terms and conditions of the permit. The dailies said the resumption flew in the face of the global commitment to protect the environment and safeguard biodiversity, criticizing the GOJ for moving ahead with the force realignment plan at all costs.
