        A Japanese court has found a complicity of the state and the operating company Tepco in the nuclear disaster in Fukushima. Some 3800 citizens had filed a lawsuit against the state and Tepco in front of the District Court of Fukushima.
They demanded a monthly compensation of 50,000 yen (380 euros) until the radiation fell to the level before the GAU in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami in March 2011.
Nuclear power remains in Japan It is the third verdict against Tepco. Already in March another court had ruled that Tepco and the state had been guilty of negligence. In another trial, the state was released.
Despite these judgments and the wide opposition in the people against the nuclear power since the catastrophe, Japan's nuclear regulator has declared two Tepco reactors safe for the first time since the catastrophe in Fukushima. The nuclear regulatory authority found that the reactors 6 and 7 at the world's largest nuclear power station, Kashiwazaki-Kariwa, on the shores of the Japanese Sea had met the security requirements tightened to Fukushima. Until the start, however, years should pass. The government is sticking to nuclear power. Four reactors are now back on the grid.
