- Residents who stayed in Fukushima to receive same compensation as evacuees
Fukushima residents who decided to stay behind in their hometowns despite the nuclear disaster will receive the same amount of compensation as voluntary evacuees from areas other than the no-go zone, officials with a government panel in charge of redress issues decided on Nov. 25.
The officials said the panel under the Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry (MEXT) decided to expand the coverage of compensation to those who have stayed behind because it believes they are suffering mental distress due to the crisis at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant irrespective of the timing of evacuations or evacuations per se.
