The Saga District Court on Tuesday rejected a request by local residents to suspend the planned restart of two nuclear reactors over safety concerns.

Some 70 people sought an injunction to halt the restart of the Nos. 3 and 4 reactors at Kyushu Electric Power Co.’s Genkai nuclear power plant, questioning safety standards and citing the risk of a volcanic eruption in the region. The No. 3 reactor is scheduled to restart on Friday, with the No. 4 unit following in May.
