Iran Blasts US 9/11 Ruling as ‘Mockery of Americans, Victims of Terror Attack’

Sputnik – 06.05.2018

On Wednesday, a US court ordered Iran to pay billions of dollars to the families of those killed in the September 11 terrorist act. The ruling is part of a larger case being pursued by the families against Saudi Arabia for its alleged role in the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Tehran has strictly condemned the decision made by the US court, which had ruled that Iranian authorities have to pay compensations to the relatives of the victims of the September 11 attacks, according to a statement by the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Bahram Kasemi.

“The court’s decision is unacceptable and rejected, it is not only a mockery of the system of international law, but also a mockery of the American people, especially the victims of the September 11 attacks and their families,” the diplomat stressed.

Kasemi has further stated that the court’s decision was “politically motivated” and accused the US of attempts to “rewrite history.”

“The government of Iran reserves the right to object to this illegal court proceedings,” the spokesman added.

On Wednesday, the US court ordered Iran, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Central Bank of Iran to pay billions of dollars in compensation to the relatives of the victims of the September 11 attacks, since they were found guilty of killing more than 1,008 people.

The decision was taken despite the fact that the special investigation commission had not previously established direct evidence of Iran’s involvement in the terrorist act.

The families of those killed in the attacks on September 11, 2001, in New York filed a lawsuit against the Iranian authorities in 2004.

  2. The American courts, like their Zio counterparts, serve, not justice, but the state.

  3. Is the Dept Of (In)Justice going to meekly accept the conclusions that this ‘idiot’ Judge has arrived at? Shouldn’t he at least be called on to explain how he arrived at his ridiculous ‘judgement?
    If the judgement is allowed to stand, it will remain a stain on the DoJ and the USA itself.

    Even the people who actually carried out the ‘Attacks'(Demolitions) on 9/11 must be staggered at the stupidity of this ‘judge’.

  4. Sadly, the collective US leadership (sic) is a mockery of humanity, moral decency, and justice. It carries citizens like me along with it; thus, I’m part of it. I seem powerless to resist in any meaningful way.

    As for the judgment against Iran, it smells all too much like the neocon-Zionist orchestration of misinformation and lies leading up to the dismemberment and shattering of Iraq.
