Japanese Courts Give Hope to Uranium Miners
May 3, 2015
Uranium mining executives were at a higher risk for heart attacks this month after two Japanese courts ruled on the restart of nuclear reactors in the country, stalled since the Fukushima Daiichi reactor had a nuclear meltdown in March 2011.
On April 14, the Fukui district court in western Japan ruled in favor of anti-nuclear activists and issued an injunction to stop plans to restart two nuclear reactors at the Takahama nuclear power plant. The court ruled that the safety of the plant could not be guaranteed.
