Largest pending nuclear-related suit filed against Genkai Nuclear Power Plant

Author: No Comments Share:

A total of 1,704 people from across Japan, the largest number of plaintiffs in a pending nuclear-related suit, sued the government and the operator of the Genkai nuclear power plant in Saga Prefecture on Tuesday, demanding that all four reactors at the plant be halted.  Another group of around 300 residents also sued Kyushu Electric last month demanding that the utility suspend operation of the Genkai plant.


“We want the judges to agree that the safety dogma regarding nuclear reactors has collapsed during the trial,” said Akira Hasegawa, the plaintiffs’ leader and former president of Saga University.
