Canada sells billions of dollars in Iranian assets

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Under the pretext of supporting the so-called “victims” of terrorism around the world, the Canadian government has sold tens of millions of seized goods belonging to the Iranian government and the proceeds of the sale have been given to these alleged victims.

According to a document filed in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice last month, “victims” received a share of the money earned from the sale of Iran’s buildings in Ottawa and Toronto, Global wrote News.

The documents show that the properties have yielded more than $ 28 million.

The Ottawa property, which was the Iranian Cultural Center, was particularly profitable. Presented as a “golden opportunity to develop transportation projects on the University of Ottawa’s parking lot”, it was sold to a Montreal promoter for $ 26.5 million.

The Toronto property, owned by a company headed by an embassy official and used as a center for Iranian studies, was acquired for $ 1.85 million.

In addition to proceeds from the sale of goods, the so-called “victims” were allocated a share of about $ 2.6 million in Iranian bank accounts. The documents also mention a Toyota Camry and a Mazda MPV, according to Global News.

In response to the Canadian government’s decision, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi called it an illegal act in flagrant violation of international law before strongly condemning it.

He said the Iranian government would not compromise with any government on the protection of the rights of its own people, calling for the immediate restitution of those properties illegally sold by the Canadian government.

The foreign ministry spokesman also warned that “if this illegal decision is not revoked and the losses suffered are not compensated, the Islamic Republic of Iran will act directly to recover its rights and the Government of Canada will have to take responsibility for the consequences of all acts.”
