A lawyer for residents who sought an injunction to block the restart of 2 reactors at the Takahama plant has denounced Thursday's court decision as unjust.
Lawyer Hiroyuki Kawai said the Fukui District Court's decision to reverse an earlier injunction was extremely unjust and unacceptable.
He said the court refused to learn from the lessons of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident. He also said the court seems to have a foregone conclusion as it apparently considered the plant operator's schedule for restart.
Kawai expressed intent to immediately file an appeal of the case with a high court.
One of the residents who filed the case, Harumi Kondaiji, said she felt indignant that the judge gave up being the guardian of the law and trampled on basic human rights.
Kondaiji said she will turn her indignation to energy to further their fight against the restart.
