 WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) released the following statement applauding the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for upholding a district court’s ruling that $1.75 billion of Iranian money should be distributed to the families of the victims of the 1983 bombing of a Marine Corps barracks in Beirut, Lebanon:

 “I applaud the appeals court for upholding this ruling in favor of the families whose loved ones were tragically killed as a result of an act of violent terrorism in which the government of Iran played a vital role,” said Congressman Jones.  “While no amount of money will ease the pain caused by the loss these individuals have suffered, this ruling is a small token of justice and reiterates the fact that acts of violence against American service members cannot be executed without consequences.” 

The money in question is currently being held in an account in New York.  Congressman Jones has long advocated for justice for the families of the victims and has supported bipartisan legislation to that end.
