Iran issues arrest warrant for US President Trump, asks Interpol to help

Bennie Garza | 29 June, 2020, 16:38

Recall that the United States military killed Soleimani in an air strike outside Baghdad global airport.

In January, a US drone strike in Iraq killed Soleimani, who was the leader of the Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force.

The IRNA news agency quoted Tehran Prosecutor General Ali Alqasi-Mehr, who said that 36 individuals had been identified in connection with the assassination of Soleimani, who was killed at Baghdad's global airport on 3 January.

Iran said it issued an Interpol red notice for US President Donald Trump over the killing of Quds force commander Qassem Suleimani in January this year.

While Trump faces no danger of arrest, the charges underscore the heightened tensions between Iran and the United States since Trump unilaterally withdrew America from Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers.

Now Iran's senior prosecutor wants revenge and has Trump at the top of the list, saying the president will be facing prosecution "even after his term as president is over".

Miffed with Soleimani's death, Iranian Revolutionary Guards vowed to attack Israel and other United States allies in revenge of U.S. action. Tehran has requested the help of Interpol in securing their arrest. The notices cannot force countries to arrest or extradite suspects, but can put government leaders on the spot and limit suspects' travel.

It is unlikely Interpol would grant Iran's request as its guideline for notices forbids it from "undertaking any intervention or activities of a political" nature.
