Iran denounces US ruling to sell property

Published: 04.19.14, 16:48 / Israel News

TEHRAN - Iran has condemned a ruling issued by a US federal judge approving plans to sell a 36-story Manhattan office building and other properties owned by Iran nationwide in what will be the largest terrorism-related forfeiture ever.


Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham is quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying late Friday as calling the verdict "illegal" and a politically-motivated decision that violates US obligations on freedom of religions.


The judge ruled last September that the Manhattan office tower, belonging to the Iran-linked Alavi Foundation, was subject to forfeiture because revenue from it was secretly funneled to a state-owned Iranian bank in violation of a US trade embargo. (AP)
