» The request from local people to stop Oi nuclear power plant was rejected

The Osaka District Court on April 16th, 2013  rejected a suit seeking to suspend the operation of two reactors at the Oi power plant run by Kansai Electric Power Co. in Fukui Prefecture on the Sea of Japan coast.

This lawsuit was filed by a group of some 260 local people  in western Japan seeking suspension of the two reactors which were re-launched in July 2012.

It was the first judicial decision on the operation of reactors other than the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, since the March 2011 outbreak of the nuclear disaster at the Tokyo Electric Power Co. plant in northeastern Japan.
