Reflection of the status of PS752 flight case in the recent report by Mr. Javid Rahman, the special rapporteur of the United Nations

Excerpts from the UN report, which refers to the status of PS752 flight case:

5. In Canada, the Special Rapporteur also held a detailed meeting with families of the victims of Ukraine International Airlines flight 752.

89. The Special Rapporteur expresses his extreme disappointment at the culture of impunity and the absence of accountability prevalent at the domestic level. However, recent years have witnessed the possibility of holding the state accountable within international law and individuals accountable in foreign and international courts or through the use of universal jurisdiction. The families of those killed in the downing of Ukrainian Airlines flight 752 are victims of a continuing and grave injustice. Those families seek accountability for the truth to be revealed and justice to be served. In July 2023, Canada, Sweden, Ukraine and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland instituted proceedings against the Islamic Republic of Iran before the International Court of Justice over the shooting down by the Iranian authorities of the Ukrainian airliner, claiming that Iran had “failed to conduct an impartial, transparent and fair criminal investigation and prosecution consistent with international law”.
