UN Court Allows Iran to Proceed With Bid to Recover $2 Bln in Funds Frozen by US

Earlier, Tehran appealed to the International Court of Justice to help get its sovereign wealth back home following a 2016 ruling by the US Supreme Court that the money should be paid to survivors and relatives of a 1983 terrorist attack in Lebanon which the US blamed on Iran.

The ICJ has ruled that Iran can proceed with its case to try to recover its money on Wednesday, with Hague judges rejecting US claims that the case should be thrown out due to Iran's alleged links to international terrorism, AFP has reported.

The court "unanimously finds that it has jurisdiction…to rule on the application filed by the Islamic Republic of Iran on June 14, 2016, and that the said application is admissible," a Hague judge said.
