Iran blasts Ontario judge over ‘politically motivated’ decision to hand $7M in state assets to terror victims

An Ontario judge’s decision to hand Iran’s $7-million worth of state assets in Canada to victims of terrorism was branded “politically motivated” and of “no legal value” by the Islamic republic on the weekend.

Through its state-controlled media, Iran lashed out at an Ontario Superior Court of Justice ruling that gave terror victims the money that Iran had stashed in Canadian bank accounts, as well as two properties in Toronto and Ottawa.
