For Immediate Release Washington D.C. – Today, Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL), voted for H.R. 3457, the Justice for Victims of Iranian Terrorism Act. Introduced by Rep. Pat Meehan (R-PA) and co-sponsored by Palmer, this bill would prohibit the lifting of any U.S. sanctions targeting Iran unless Iran pays an estimated $43.5 billion it owes in unpaid judgements as ordered by U.S. Courts, the result of civil actions taken by victims of Iranian sponsored terrorism. U.S. courts have held Iran liable for a number of attacks carried out by its terrorist proxies, including the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine Barracks in Beirut and 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, which together killed 260 American servicemen.
