The way of the relatives of those killed on the UIA plane over Tehran will be long before receiving compensation, but it is possible after the decision of the Supreme Court of the Canadian Ontario. This was told by a Canadian diplomat, a former member of the OSCE mission in Ukraine, Michael Botsyurkiv, BBC reports.

On May 20, a Canadian court ruled that Iran deliberately organized a terrorist attack by firing two missiles on a UIA plane in January 2020.

The court ordered Iran to pay compensation to a group of relatives who went to court in Canada. According to Botsyurkiv, a court decision on how much Iran should pay should be expected in a few weeks. The plaintiffs had previously claimed at least $ 1.25 billion in compensation.

However, Iran does not recognize the decision of the Canadian court. Also, difficulties may arise with the seizure of Iranian property in order to pay compensation.

The tragedy took place on the night of January 8, 2020 in the sky over Tehran. On the morning of January 11, the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces announced that a missile, launched by the military center of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, hit the Ukrainian plane. The results of the decryption of information from the aircraft's flight recorders carried out in France confirmed that the catastrophe occurred as a result of a missile attack.
