TEHRAN (Press Shia) – The Canadian government has sold tens of millions worth of seized Iranian government properties in the North American country, giving away the proceeds to what it calls “terror victims”.
According to a document filed in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice last month, the so-called victims got a share of the money earned through the sale of Iran’s buildings in Ottawa and Toronto.
The valuable Ottawa property, sold for $26.5 million, was used as the Iranian Cultural Center, and the Toronto building, sold for $1.85 million, served as the Center for Iranian Studies.
In addition to the $28 million earned from the sale of the two properties, the victims were also awarded a share of some $2.6 million seized from Iran’s bank accounts. Documents also list a Toyota Camry and Mazda MPV.
The recipients include several American families who have filed claims in the Ontario and Nova Scotia courts, seeking a share of Iran’s assets seized by the Canadian government.
Seven years ago, a New York court claimed there was evidence to show that Iran provided “material support and resources” to al-Qaeda militants that carried out the September 11, 2001 attacks, calling on Iran to compensate victims.
That court awarded the plaintiffs damages of over $7 billion.
Iran has denied any links to al-Qaeda or any involvement in the 9/11 attacks.
On the basis of the known evidence, knowledgeable and informed people have concluded that 9/11 was an inside job organized by neoconservatives and Israel for the purpose of reconstructing the Middle East in Israel’s interest and enriching the US military/security complex in the process.
