Canada joins allies in sanctioning Iranians implicated in assassination plot
18-Oct-2011 (one comment)

OTTAWA - Canada is slapping sanctions on five Iranian
nationals accused of plotting to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador to
the United States.

The federal government follows the lead of the U.S. and
Britain in freezing the individuals' assets and prohibiting Canadians
from having financial dealings with them.

They include two men charged in the alleged plot — Manssor
Arbabsiar, an American who also holds Iranian citizenship, and Ali
Gholam Shakuri, said to be a member of a special unit of Iran's
Revolutionary Guard.

The sanctions also apply to three other members of the
Revolutionary Guard — Qasem Sleimani, Hamed Abdollahi and Abdul Reza
Shahlai — accused of involvement in the failed assassination scheme.

The Foreign Affairs Department says the foiled operation is
further evidence of the threat Tehran poses to global peace and

Iran denies involvement in the plot, calling it a fabrication.

Very true! IR criminals have not assassinated a single individual since coming to power. Similar to acquiring nuclear weapons, killing is against the ideology of the mullas.
