Interpol says no to Iran on arrest warrant for Donald Trump

Iran has issued an arrest warrant for US President Donald Trump over the drone strike that killed Qasem Soleimani a top Iranian general in January 2020

France-based Interpol is yet to respond to the Iranian request.

Iran on Monday issued an arrest warrant for United States President Donald Trump and 35 others over the killing of a top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad and sought Interpol's help to arrest him.

Analysts say the issuing of the arrest warrant is little more than a symbolic gesture by Iran, but that it reflects the depth of animosity felt towards President Trump.

The Islamic Republic asked Interpol for help in detaining Trump and 35 others, though the worldwide organization that enables global law-enforcement cooperation later said that it would not honor the request.

The prosecutor general explained that Trump is at the top of the list and he'll be facing prosecution even after his term as president comes to an end.

That was something noted by Brian Hook, the U.S. special representative for Iran, who dismissed the announcement during a news conference in Saudi Arabia on Monday.

The notices cannot force countries to arrest or extradite suspects, but can put Government leaders on the spot and limit suspects' travel.


Following obtaining a ask for, Interpol fulfills by committee and discusses whether or not or not to share the info with its member states.

Interpol has no requirement for making any of the notices public, though some do get published on its website. The organization explained the request violates its rules that say Interpol can not "undertake any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character".

Mourners have the coffin of Soleimani through a funeral procession on January four. This has nothing to do with national security, global peace or promoting stability.

Ali Alqasimehr on Monday announced murder and terrorism charges in Tehran against Mr Trump over the January 3 killing of Quds force commander Qassem Suleimani, Iraqi militia head Abu Mahdi Al Muhandise, along with others near Bagdhad airport.

The strike took the tension between the two countries to another level and was followed by Iran retaliating with a ballistic missile strike targeting American troops in Iraq.

It came after months of rising tensions between the USA and Iran.
