Iran issues arrest warrant for Trump over Soleimani killing

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

Recall that the U.S. military killed Soleimani in an air strike outside Baghdad worldwide airport.

However, finding it hard to let go, Iran issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol to help in detaining Trump and dozens of others it believes carried out the drone strike that killed its general.

Iranian prosecutor Ali Alqaismehr made the remarks during a meeting today with high-ranking judicial officials, saying arrest warrants had been issued for 36 individuals including politicians and military officials from the USA and other governments.

Iran according to Aljazeera, said she would pursue Trump's prosecution even after his presidency ends.

Interpol, based in Lyon, France, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


He said Iran had asked Interpol to issue a "red notice" for Trump and the other individuals the Islamic Republic accuses of taking part in the killing of Soleimani. A Red Notice is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.

On January 3, Trump ordered airstrikes that martyred General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), in Baghdad's worldwide airport. Interpol has no requirement for making any of the notices public, though some do get published on its website.

The strike against Soleimani came after months of tensions between Tehran and Washington and saw Iran retaliate with a ballistic missile strike targeting United States troops based in Iraq.

However, Interpol clarified that its constitution prevents them from "undertaking any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character".
