Iran's Downing of Flight PS752 Was 'Terrorism' - Ontario Court

Wednesday, 08/02/2023

The Ontario Court of Justice once again declared that the shooting down of Flight PS752 by the Iranian regime constitutes "terrorist activity".

The court's ruling, issued on Monday, entitles the family plaintiffs of eight PS752 passengers to default judgment on liability, with damages set at $142 million. Each victim's family will receive over $16 million in damages and an additional $1 million for the pain and suffering caused by the tragic attack.

The court case was initiated by six individuals representing eight families of the victims of the flight. Notably, a similar verdict in favor of several other victims' families was previously issued in a case known as “Zarei et al vs Islamic Republic of Iran et al.”

Flight PS752 was shot down by two air-defense missiles fired by the IRGC shortly after taking off from Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport on January 8, 2020. The attack occurred in the aftermath of the IRGC's missile strikes on Iraqi bases hosting US troops, conducted in retaliation for the killing of IRGC Quds Force Commander Ghasem Soleimani in a US drone strike just five days earlier.

Tragically, all 176 passengers and crew members, including 63 Canadians, 10 Swedes, and 82 Iranian citizens, lost their lives in the disaster.
