Japanese government will pay

Date Posted: 1998-03-14

A landmark step has been taken by the Japanese government in a 62 million yen settlement involving a reparation payment to the family of Rogita Kinjo. In January 1996, Kinjo, 36, and her two young daughters, aged 1 and 3, were killed after being struck outside Camp Foster by a car driven by an American military member.

A court settlement was reached late last year and the US government agreed to pay 25 million yen because the driver was unable to pay, but 37 million yen was still owed to the family. For the first time in history, Japan has agreed to pay the remaining amount. Setting a precedent causing local residents to wonder if similar payments would be made in future accidents involving an American military member.
