Canadian court awards $13mn in frozen assets to ‘Iran terror’ victims

A Canadian court has awarded $13 million in non-diplomatic assets seized from Iran to the families of Americans who died in several attacks globally, which had allegedly been sponsored by Tehran between 1983 to 2002.

The judgment by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, obtained by AFP on Friday, found Tehran responsible for financing and training Hamas and Hezbollah operatives, who carried out eight bombings or hostage-takings in Buenos Aires, Israel, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia over a period spanning nearly 20 years.

  • It is long overdue to make the Islamic terror states pay.

    It is time for zero tolerance of Islamic terror. Islamic terror will drop dramatically when the “terror states” can no longer use the Western world’s banking system.

    It is good to see justice being rendered, but it remains to be seen if they can now collect the award. I expect the Obama administration and the Liberals here to do everything possible to prevent it.

    • But can Iranian assets in Canadian banks be frozen or seized?

    The best punishment for Iran will be their sanctions back again by selling their oil that’s their finances to keep supporting terrorism around the world.
