Iran muss 2 Milliarden Dollar an US-Terroropfer zahlen

Iran’s central bank must pay nearly $2 billion to victims of terrorist attacks, the Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday. In a 6-to-2 decision, the court said Congress had not exceeded its constitutional role in enacting a statute to make it easier for the plaintiffs to recover damages that had been awarded to them in a series of lawsuits. The cases were brought by the families of Americans killed in terrorist attacks found to have been sponsored by Iran, including relatives of those who died in the 1983 Marine Corps barracks bombing in Lebanon. That attack killed 241 servicemen.“ (Der Journalist Adam Liptak in der New York Times: „Supreme Court Rules Iran Bank Must Pay for Terrorist Attacks“)
