Canada charges 2 men with violating Iran sanctions

2 Canadians have been charged in Canada with illegally exporting railway equipment worth several million dollars to Iran, in contravention of Canada’s Iran sanctions regime. They are 2 directors of Romic Marc Rail Inc, based in Montreal.

In July, following the JCPOA being agreed between the E3/EU+3 and Iran, Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister Rob Nicolson announced that Canada would retain its sanctions against Iran pending further examination of the situation (see previous blog).
