Gov't approves TEPCO request for extra Y697 bil in public funds

TOKYO — Fukushima nuclear plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co on Monday received approval to tap the Japanese government for 697 billion yen more funds to compensate those harmed by the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.

TEPCO issued a statement saying the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry had approved the utility’s request to increase compensation by 697 billion yen, or 22%, to 3.24 trillion yen.

The increase was requested because of changes to requirements for receiving compensation. About 160,000 people were evacuated from areas around the plant after an earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 caused reactor meltdowns and the worst radiological release since 1986. TEPCO has admitted it was insufficiently prepared for natural disasters.
