A group of nuclear accident evacuees in Fukushima has won a compensation settlement decision from a state-backed legal arbitration body for radiation exposure and future health uncertainties.
The Nuclear Damage Claim Dispute Resolution Center decided to recommend that Tokyo Electric Power Company pay damages to about 180 former residents of the Nagadoro District in Iitate Village.
Nagadoro is near the Fukushima nuclear plant where radiation levels remain high. It is the only district in Iitate that the government declared uninhabitable over the long term.
An evacuation order for the area was issued more than a month after the accident on March 11th, 2011.
