For the past several years, CJPAC members have been asking the Government of Canada to list the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist entity under the Anti-terrorism Act. Significant progress had already been made through the Government’s SEMA Sanctions, and today, the Government of Canada announced that it has made changes to the Criminal Code list of terrorist entities to include the IRGC.
This listing means harsher penalties for those doing business with the IRGC and ensures that the Iranian regime and the IRGC can be held accountable for terrorist attacks under the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act (JVTA).
We would also like to recognize the Liberal Party and MP Irwin Cotler in particular, for their sustained efforts in calling for the IRGC to be listed as a terrorist entity.
