Iran Asks Interpol to Help 'Arrest Trump' for Killing Soleimani

Authorities in Iran have approved a measure to ask Interpol to put US President Donald Trump on its worldwide Red Notice of wanted persons over the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani, Iranian media including Mehr News and the Fars News Agency have reported, citing judicial officials.

Reportedly, Iran has also sought help from Interpol, asking the worldwide criminal police organization to issue a "red notice" for Trump and the others.

Prosecutor-General of Tehran Ali Alqasi Mehr said those involved in Soleimani's killing face murder and terrorism charges. He stressed that Iran would continue to pursue Trump's prosecution even after his presidency ends. "On behalf of people of Kerman province, we will pay $3 million award in cash to whoever kills Trump", Hamzeh had announced.

Qasi Mehr, quoted on the judiciary's Mizan Online official website, said "the Iranian judiciary has issued arrest warrants against the 36".

He called for the global police agency Interpol to issue red notices, which are not arrest warrants but issued for those wanted for prosecution or sentencing. When approached by the Associated Press for comment, Interpol-based in Lyon, France-did not immediately respond. The notices cannot force countries to arrest or extradite suspects, but can put government leaders on the spot and limit suspects' travel, according to Al Jazeera.


According to AP, the US President is in no danger of an arrest as Interpol is unlikely to grant Iran's request. Interpol agreed, stating separately that its constitution forbade it to undertake "any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character" and that the request would not be considered when it reaches them.

Hook added, "This is a political nature".

On January 3, an airstrike by the USA at Baghdad's airport killed Iranian Major-General Qassem Soleimani, head of the elite Quds Force, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces.

Soleimani's killing had come at a time of heightened tensions between the United States and Iran.

Iran retaliated by firing a volley of ballistic missiles at USA troops stationed in Iraq, but Trump opted against responding militarily.
