Canadian Court Upholds $1.7b Anti-Iran Judgment

Canada’s Ontario Court of Appeal issued a ruling against Iran in favor of those who claim to be victims of Iran’s support for resistance groups.
On Monday, the court upheld a $1.7-billion judgment against the Iranian government.
The plaintiffs had sought compensation in the court under Canada’s Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act.
Justice C. William Hourigan, on behalf of a panel of concurring judges, wrote, “There is nothing offensive about using peaceful legislative means to combat terrorism,” National Post reported.
In February, Canada’s Ontario Superior Court of Justice ruled that Iran had to pay $300,000 in legal costs to the so-called victims of terrorism.
The Monday decision was similar to US Supreme Court’s ruling in April 2016 to hand over $2 billion in Iran’s frozen assets to American families of those killed in the 1983 bombing of US Marine Corps barracks in Beirut and other attacks blamed on Iran.
Also, a US court verdict last Wednesday allowed the US government to seize an office tower in New York City owned largely by an Iranian charity organization, the Alavi Foundation.
