Canada bans Iranian Revolutionary Guard leaders from entering its territory
(Reuters) – Canada decided on Friday to block senior Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard officials from entering its territory, promising more targeted sanctions in response to Tehran’s treatment of women and the civilian plane slaughtered in 2020.
Iran has come under fire from the international community since the death of Mahsa Amini after her arrest by the vice squad.
The death of the 22-year-old young woman triggered a large protest movement in Iran.
The coroner who performed the autopsy on Mahsa Amini concluded that the young woman succumbed not to the beating but to multiple organ failures due to cerebral hypoxia, the official Irna agency reported on Friday.
The Canadian government continues to pressure Tehran over the Ukrainian airliner
International Airlines shot down in January 2020.
As many as 138 of the 176 people found dead had ties to Canada.
Half of the Revolutionary Guard’s senior officials, more than 10,000 officers and officers, are affected by the measure, which bans entry into Canadian territory.
“The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps is a terrorist organization,” said Chrystia Freeland, Canada‘s Deputy Prime Minister, although the government has not officially listed it as a terrorist organization.
