The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs Welcomes the Re-introduction of the Provisions of the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act

OTTAWA, Sept. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Today, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs welcomed the federal government's re-introduction of the former Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act within The Safe Streets and Communities Act.

"The Jewish community is highly supportive of the government's re-introduction of these important measures to support victims of terrorism," stated David Koschitzky, Chair of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs. "As a community at risk, we believe that Canadian victims of terrorism should have the ability to seek direct redress from those who commit and support acts of terrorism, including foreign states."

"We are appreciative of the government for this initiative. We are also grateful for the dedication of a grassroots coalition of Canadians led by family members of terror victims, who today can take great pride in the results of their hard work," concluded Koschitzky.

The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs is the voice of the organized Jewish and pro-Israel communities in Canada, including for those issues formerly handled by the Canadian Jewish Congress, the Canada-Israel Committee, and the Quebec-Israel Committee.
