Tepco, operator of Fukushima nuclear plant, to pay an extra $10m in damages

Tepco, operator of Fukushima nuclear plant, to pay an extra $10m in damages | 08 Feb 2018 | A Tokyo court has ordered the operator of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant to pay $10m in fresh damages to residents who fled their homes after the disaster, the plaintiffs' attorney said on Thursday. Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) was instructed to pay a total of 1.1bn yen to 318 former residents of the Odaka district in Fukushima, about 20km from the plant. The sum is a 10th of what the plaintiffs had demanded, citing the financial hardship and psychological impact they suffered after the March 2011 nuclear disaster in Fukushima.
