TEPCO ordered to pay 1.1 billion yen to evacuees in Fukushima

As reported by the Asahi Shimbun.

318 plaintiffs, former residents in Minami-Soma’s Odaka district who became nuclear evacuees because of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear catastrophe, were awared $30,000 each in compensation by the court.

But they had each requested ten times that amount due to the loss of their hometown. They are considering appealing the ruling for that reason.
