Reconciliation example from a statement by Tokyo Electric Power Company – compensation for the death of a pet is 50,000 yen

Reconciliation example from a statement by Tokyo Electric Power Company – compensation for the death of a pet is 50,000 yen.

It is too sad that 50,000 yen is the value a life. I want to hold them once again, let them live. Still now thousands of pets are left behind in the off-limits area. One after another they perish. Tokyo Electric Power Company must rescue these pets before they die.

Reprinted from the website of the lawyers for victims of the nuclear plant accident.

The lawyers for victims of the nuclear plant accident announced a settlement in a case pertaining to the Nuclear Damage Dispute Resolution Center, coming to terms with Tokyo Electric Power Company. The substance of reconciliation is as follows;                                                                                                                  1. The damage for a building is 14,000,000 yen, the damage for household effects is 4,750,000 yen, the compensation per person is 1,420,000 yen (from March to November, 2011), the compensation for the death of a pet per person is 50,000 yen, making a total of 23,127,050 yen, (U.S.$280,515), including the lawyer's expenses, for the petitioner (a married couple), to be paid by March 9th, 2012.

2. Separately, 120,000 will be paid for transportation, hotels, and medical expenses.

3.The temporary compensation allowance of 1,600,000 yen already paid is not to be deducted.

4. 1,000,000 in further compensation will depend on circumstances of the victims, as negotiated and agreed of by the concerned parties.

Lawyers for the victims of the nuclear accident offered this plan to Tokyo Electric Power Company on December 27th, 2011, and, after having refused at first, TEPCO finally accepted the terms. This result is assessed as an advance of relief for the victims. However there are still some problems to be resolved.

About Us

Message from Akiko Yui, President and Founder of TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital
I believe that helping animals in need, existing in symbiosis with animals, and fostering a loving heart lead to an improvement in one’s character of kindness and generosity. The killing of animals due to decisions made by administration goes against my firm belief in preventing cruelty to animals. Animal Rescue Fund’s most important goal is to reduce the number of animals killed in Japan to zero by urging administration to change, reform, and improve the prevention of cruelty to animals. In order to reduce the number of animals in need, we work to raise awareness and support for the importance of sterilization operations. Each year, we spay and neuter more than 1000 stray cats. We are always putting animals up for adoption to help those lives already born in finding a loving home.

TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital:
We first opened our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital in February of 2011 in an effort to make our dream a reality - to lower the number of dogs and cats killed in Japan to zero. At our hospital, we spay and neuter cats to reduce the number of unfortunate stray cats. Our hospital strives to help unfortunate animals in need of medical care.
The lives of numerous pets and livestock were lost as a result of the unprecedented earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11th 2011 and the radiation disaster caused by the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Animal Rescue Fund goes directly to the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant to rescue animals.
Animal Rescue Fund is based in Kanagawa Prefecture’s TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. Therefore, the animals that we rescue from Fukushima Prefecture are brought to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Here, the rescued animals receive medical care and are returned to their owners or are put up for adoption.
We also work in urging the government and administration of Japan to support the protection of animals in need.
