Okinawa Times wrote that the Okinawa Prefectural Government announced on Wednesday that it has decided not to file a lawsuit over the agriculture minister’s suspension of Governor Tamaki’s rescindment of his permit for the Okinawa Defense Bureau to transplant coral reefs off Henoko for the FRF construction. The paper wrote that the prefectural government made the decision based on the assessment that the transplantation of coral reefs would be finished before the court handed down its final judgment. According to a prefectural government source, the local government would need to withdraw its appeal before the court handed down its ruling if the transplantation were completed before the conclusion of the trial, which would cost the local government millions of yen.
