Takayama city ordered to compensate Aum members

Kyodo News in Japan Today/July 1, 2003

The top court concluded last week that municipalities are required to accept such applications, saying a resident registry forms the basis of administrative procedures, such as the electoral roll, by maintaining accurate records of residents' data.
