Date Posted: 2002-11-15

The construction of a new facility to replace the Army Sobe telecommunications site, the so called “Elephant Cage” in Yomitan that has been the site of several confrontation between the government and anti-base land owners, is well under way, officials at Naha Self Defense Facilities Administration Bureau say. They report that the preliminary construction at the new site within Camp Hansen was completed on Oct. 23. Office buildings at the new site are scheduled to be ready in Dec. 2003 and the facility should be operations in May 2004.

The current site will be returned to land owners after the transfer is complete. The official return of the land is likely to happen in May 2005. The auxiliary airport land in Yomitan is scheduled to be returned at the same time.
