Tepco paid compensation for the man to have his wife return to Europe

The man in Sendai city Miyagi was claiming for damage for his wife evacuating to her home country in Europe.
The Dispute Resolution Mediators partially terminated the Dispute Resolution Procedures between him and Tepco by 12/10/2012 on the ground that Tepco is to pay 1,700,000 JPY for him.
Evacuation cost : 600,000 JPY
Increased living expense : 900,000 JPY
Transportation cost : 100,000 JPY
Consolation money : 0 JPY
He claimed for 7,000,000 JPY compensation from Tepco and Tepco did not pay consolation money. However, it’s a very rare case that a non-Japanese person evacuating out of Japan is compensated for the evacuation cost as it was claimed for.
Tepco stated there is no necessity to have to evacuate out of Japan. If Tepco pays consolation money, other evacuees would be affected, so it can’t be paid.
The man commented, the country of his wife was contaminated by Chernobyl accident, she and her family was seriously concerned. His family was departed and is having an extreme mental anguish. The resolved dispute brought a hope to other evacuees to out of Japan.

Tepco paye des compensations à un homme pour que sa femme  puisse rentrer en Europe

Cet homme de la ville de Sendai dans le Miyagi réclamait pour que sa femme puisse évacuer dans son pays natal en Europe.
Les Dispute Resolution Mediators ont partiellement conclu la Dispute Resolution Procedure entre lui et Tepco le 10 décembre 2012 sur la base que Tepco lui paye 1 700 000 Yens.
Coût d’évacuation : 600 000 Yens
Surcoût des dépenses vivrières : 900 000 Yens
Transport : 100 000 Yens
Dommages et intérêts: 0 Yen
Il réclamait 7 000 000 Yens de compensation à Tepco et Tepco n’a pas payé de dommages et intérêts. Ceci étant, c’est un cas très rare où l’évacuation d’une personne non japonaise est compensée sur réclamation.
Tepco affirme qu’il n’est pas nécessaire d’évacuer le Japon. Si Tepco paye des dommages et intérêts, beaucoup d’autres évacués seraient concernés, donc ils ne pourraient pas payer.
L’homme précise que le pays de sa femme a été contaminé par l’accident de Tchernobyl, elle et sa famille ont été gravement impactées. Sa famille a été évacuée et vit depuis dans une angoisse permanente. La résolution de cette contestation apporte un espoir à tous les autres évacués du Japon.


About this site

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.
