On behalf of the more than 10,000 of its people, who were forced to leave their homes after the nuclear accident in Fukushima, the city of Namie filed in state arbitration body requirement to increase the amount of monthly payments.
City Mayor Tamotsu Baba, accompanied by lawyers on Wednesday filed an application to the Centre for resolution of disputes regarding damage caused by a nuclear accident.
Tokyo Denreku company, which operates the nuclear power plant emergency, "Fukushima Dai-ichi," pays monthly evacuated about a thousand dollars. In turn, the people who were forced to evacuate, believe that the compensation does not meet adequately the suffering that it has caused this unprecedented nuclear accident. They require a payment of about $ 3,500 per month, as well as reviewing existing regulations.
