Ontario court upholds $1.7B judgment against Iran, ruling in favour of American victims of terrorism

Ontario’s Court of Appeal upheld a US$1.7-billion judgment against the government of Iran in favour of American victims of terrorism, rejecting the state’s immunity and accusing Tehran of trying to derail Canada’s Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act.

    I’m sure if it ends up in the hands of the socialists on the Supreme Court of Canada, they will rule in favour of Iran. The supreme court loves its muslm buddies. Trudeau will even make another apology.

      that was my first thought too. It’s a Harper statute, it must be bad…

  • Don’t worry. Trudeau and his uglier brother will fix all that.

    Too bad Obama gave all their frozen assets back to them. Good luck collecting on this judgement

    Coming on the same day that Trudeau’s going to be shovelling $10 million to the Liberal pet Omar Khadr. At least the court got it right.

      I’m hoping that Khadr’s victims’ families will sue for the $10-million so he doesn’t see a penny.

        The victim’s widow has a $100+ million judgment against Khadr. I’m hoping that they will garnishee the Canadian government, but knowing Trudeau, that’s unlikely.
