US Court Ruling on 9/11 Attacks Preposterous

Iran has officially protested a US court ruling against the country for allegedly aiding in the 2001 terror attacks in the United States, a senior official said on Monday, calling the preposterous verdict a "mockery" of international law.   Earlier in May, a federal judge in New York ordered Iran to pay billions of dollars to parents, spouses, siblings and children of more than 1,000 victims of the September 11 attacks whose families sued, ABC News reported, citing court filings.  
"The issuance of such illegal verdicts is a flagrant violation of international law, commitments and accepted norms that demand respect for legal immunity of governments," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said in a statement carried by ISNA.  
He said the matter has been pursued through official channels, including through the Swiss Embassy, which represents US interests in Iran in the absence of diplomatic ties between Tehran and Washington.
