J.P. High Court & Defense Force Push U.S. Base To Be Built

16th Sep. Finally the Japanese high court judged that Okinawan Governor's decision was illegal.
The Judge support J.P. government's complaint almost 100%.

It was very strange to me that the judge even mentioned about North Korea's missile "Nodong"is out of range for Okinawa but not for mainland, therefore Okinawa has its geographical advantage.

The government of Okinawa will make an appeal to supreme court.
However we have no positive guess for the final judgement.

Last week Yanbaru Forest area became a national park except this "Jungle Warfare Training Center"
                      Utilizing all authority and power and money for U.S. militarization

Japanese Defense Force dispatched for carrying heavy vehicles for U.S. helipads construction.
It was a first time in a history to dispatch JPDF for U.S. base construction.

Tens of Police vehicles from all over Japan park 24 hours to protect U.S. base construction.

           This beautiful rain forest is carrying 60% of water supply for all Okinawan island.
However no one knows that if the water is contaminated inside of base.

At 2 p.m. on September 16, presiding judge Toshiro Tamiya handed down a verdict in a lawsuit brought by the Japanese national government against the Okinawa prefectural government over Okinawa governor Takeshi Onaga’s cancellation of a permit to reclaim land in Henoko, Nago City. In filing the lawsuit, the national government argued that it was illegal for Governor Onaga not to obey a “rectification order” by the government demanding that he undo the cancellation of the permit. Judge Tamiya accepted the government’s argument and ruled it illegal for Governor Onaga not to abide by the rectification order.
This ruling was the first to be made by a court in relation to the Henoko base construction issue. The ruling will inevitably impact future discussions concerning the relocation of U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Futenma. The Okinawa prefectural government plans to appeal the ruling, whereupon the legal battle over the permit cancellation will be brought to the Supreme Court
