Canada is imposing new sanctions on Iran over the death of a young Iranian woman while in police custody, according to Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly.

In a statement shared on Twitter Monday, Joly said the measures were in response to "gross human rights violations," mentioning in particular the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian woman who died while in the custody of Iran’s so-called morality police for reportedly wearing her hijab too closely.

The death of Mahsa Amini has led to widespread condemnation and protests around the world, including in Canada. The United States government imposed sanctions on Iran’s morality police last month.

Protests have also escalated in Iran since Amini's death on Sept. 16.

Thousands have rallied in different Canadian cities in solidarity with Amini, who was detained by morality police on Sept. 13 outside a transit station in the capital, Tehran.

She was accused of breaking a modesty law that requires women to wear a headscarf, cover their arms and legs and wear loose clothing.

Police in Iran claim Amini died of a heart attack and was not mistreated, but her family has cast doubt on that account. Independent experts affiliated with the United Nations said Thursday that reports suggested she was severely beaten by the morality police, without offering evidence.

"Iran's continued grave and ongoing breaches of international law are well known and documented, including its blatant disregard for human life," said Joly on Twitter.

NP View: Trudeau bungee jumps, while Iran burns .
Over the past three weeks, the Iranian people have clearly demonstrated that they are at their wit’s end after four decades of authoritarian rule. Although regime change is still far from certain, if the grassroots revolution ends up succeeding, it will be of little thanks to the Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which has largely sat on the sidelines, meekly following the response of our allies, but unwilling to take a firm stand against Iran’s murderous theocracy. © Provided by National Post Top: A police motorcycle burns during a protest over the death of Mahsa Amini, in Tehran, on Sept. 19.
