(September 20, 2019 / JNS) Victims of Iranian-related terrorism will be getting more than $28 million following the sale of Iranian properties in Ottawa and Toronto in accordance with a recent Canadian court decision.
Plaintiffs include the family of Marla Bennett, an American killed in the 2002 bombing at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem; and Joseph Cicippio and Edward Tracy, who were both held hostage for five years by the Iranian proxy Hezbollah.
Canada’s Supreme Court last year rejected an appeal by Iran.
The funds have already been distributed to the plaintiffs, who can solely claim any money from assets that are not diplomatic, such as embassies or consulates.
