“Canada’s Security Intelligence Service (editor’s note) is actively investigating several death threats from the Islamic Republic of Iran, based on reliable information,” Canadian Intelligence Agency spokesman Eric Balsam told AFP.

“These hostile activities and foreign interference ultimately undermine the security of Canada and Canadians, as well as our democratic values ​​and sovereignty,” he said.

These investigations, which Eric Balsam did not provide details of, are being done with the help of international partners.

He added that the Center for Strategic and International Studies is aware that Iran monitors and intimidates people in Canada, including members of the Iranian diaspora, in order to “silence those who publicly denounce” the regime.

A week ago, the UK government accused Iran of issuing death threats against UK-based journalists.

“I summoned the Iranian Chargé d’Affairs today after journalists working in the UK received death threats from Iran,” British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly wrote on Twitter.

A few days ago, a London-based Persian-language television channel, Iran International, reported that two of its UK-based journalists had received death threats from the Revolutionary Guards, Tehran’s ideological army.
