Asahi reported that the Naha Prosecutors Office on Tuesday indicted a local academic on charges of forcible obstruction of business and violation of the road traffic law, explaining that the defendant allegedly disrupted the passage of U.S. military vehicles in front of the gate to the Northern Training Area by repeatedly scattering empty bottles and cans on the road earlier this year. He reportedly sabotaged operations because the GOJ neglected his pleas for disposing of waste abandoned by the U.S. military in the training area.
