MAEBASHI, Japan (Kyodo) - A district court on Friday found negligence by the central government and plant operator contributed to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in March 2011.
The two parties have been ordered to pay [BBC report] a total of Dollars $341,000 to 62 out of 137 evacuees who sought damages for emotional distress.
Tepco and the government contested that claim, saying that a number of scholars disputed the report's conclusions and arguing that the document was insufficiently scientific.
"The government is authorised to order (TEPCO) to take such measures and it was possible to prevent the accident", the court said, according to NHK.
The government and TEPCO, however, denied the possibility of foreseeing such a disaster.
