` Japan’s Court Rules Against Restarting Nuclear Power Plant Upholding Anti-Nuclear Lobbies Law Suit ‘

#AceWorldNews – TOKYO – May 21 – A Japanese court ruled against the restart of a nuclear power plant west of Tokyo on Wednesday, according to an NHK TV report.

The court in Fukui Prefecture ruled against allowing Kansai Electric Power Co to restart reactors at its Ohi nuclear plant.

This is the first time that anti-nuclear plaintiffs have successfully sued to shut down a reactor in more than four decades, Reuters said.

All of Japan’s nuclear plants have been idled for safety checks in the wake of the 2011 disaster at Fukushima Daiichi plant.
