Court decision allows 9/11 families to go after Iran’s Alberta assets

An Alberta court has become the most recent Canadian jurisdiction to recognize the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which was originally decided by a New York court in 2012.

Under JASTA, assets of the Iranian government held in Canada may be seized and used to compensate family members of those killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, reports Jonny Wakefield for the Edmonton Journal.

B.C. Supreme Court reciprocally enforced JASTA in 2017.
