Screening panel of nuclear disaster compensation announced they are considering to stop solatium (100,000JPY / month) for the citizens living in the former evacuating zone (20~30km) in Fukushima.
They explain, Japanese government lifted the evacuating zone on 9/30/2011, and the infrastructure is being rebuilt. They are planning to cut of the solatium by the end of this august.
The zone includes Minamisoma, Tamura, Kawauchi and Hirono.
They are planning to stop it by the end of august because they are going to make students go to school from September.
Having the regional economy downward and medical treatment is not fully recovered, Prof. Nomi, the chairman of Screening panel of nuclear disaster compensation, talks, the plan might be changed if the infrastructure is not recovered. Citizen could file alternative conflict resolution procedures for every single case.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
