Canada violating Iranian expats’ civil rights: official

TEHRAN, Oct. 14 (MNA) – An Iranian Foreign Ministry official has censured the Canadian government, saying it is violating the civil rights of Iranian expatriates in Canada.

“The Iranian nationals in Canada are not in good condition in terms of receiving consular services, and their civil rights are being violated by the Canadian government,” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Consular, Parliamentary and Iranian Expatriate Affairs Hassan Qashqavi told the Mehr News Agency on Sunday.
 
“Since we have no contact with Canada, not direct or through any interests section, we are concerned about the civil rights of Iranian expatriates in Canada,” he added.
 
Qashqavi also said that even if there is a political dispute between Iran and Canada, it should not affect the legal rights of 450,000 Iranian nationals living in Canada.
