Supreme Court rules Naha right revealing plans

Date Posted: 2001-07-21

Japanís Supreme Court handed out a decision, Friday, saying that the national government cannot stop Naha City government publishing information concerning construction plans for Japan Self Defense Forcesí anti-submarine facility in Naha City. The court ruled that publishing the information was based on Naha Cityís Freedom of Information Regulations, and the general government does not have a right to overrule the local regulations.

The matter was brought to the courts 12 years ago, when the City informed the government that is would release documents and construction plans concerning the Anti Submarine Warfare Operations Center that was to be built on JSDF Naha base, when the Defense Agency submitted the plans to the city. The national government sued and insisted that the disclosure of the plans would cause major problems for the defense policy and jeopardize the national security. The final decision made by the Supreme Court ended the lawsuit, supporting the previous rulings in lower courts and the original decision of the city.
