Hamas-linked Canadian charity is fighting to be removed from terror list

A Canadian Islamic organization which lost its charitable status and was subsequently listed by Public Safety Canada as a terrorist group for transferring over $14 million worth of resources to various organizations linked to Hamas between 2005 and 2009, is fighting to be removed from the terror list.

In an application filed with the Federal Court on February 24, 2017, International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy-Canada (IRFAN-Canada) is requesting the Minister of Public Safety to de-list the organization as a terrorist entity and to be awarded the costs of the application.
