NAGASAKI – A panel of experts reviewing the law on support for survivors of the 1945 atomic bombings has agreed to recommend a fund be created to benefit such survivors living abroad, according to sources.
In its report, the panel will make the recommendation and suggest profits earned on investments the fund makes be allocated as benefits in lieu of government support. Survivors of the atomic bombings living abroad are ineligible for support under the current law.
