Sense of fatigue in Japan

P.S. Suryanarayana

SINGAPORE: Victims of the nuclear radiation crisis in Japan have expressed a sense of fatigue over the uncertainty of when normality might be restored. However, the prospect of a “provisional compensation” for their ordeal has been uniformly welcomed.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) on Friday announced a temporary payment would be made towards a final settlement of damages. In televised comments on Tepco's offer of “provisional compensation”, a visibly weary evacuee said: “I need money. But what I really want [to know] is … if and when we can return home and if the crisis can be brought under control.” Another victim voiced mixed feelings in a different way. In his view, the evacuees “deserve” the provisional payment but it would be “unacceptable” if they were to end up receiving only “a temporary payout”.
