NEWS | Iran Issues Warrant For Trump Over Killing Of Top General

RIYADH | SAUDI ARABIA  – Iran has issued an arrest warrant for U.S. President Donald Trump and 35 others over the killing of top general Qassem Soleimani and has asked Interpol for help, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on Monday, according to the Fars news agency.

The United States and Interpol both dismissed the idea of acting on such a warrant.

The United States killed Soleimani, leader of the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force, with a drone strike in Iraq on Jan.3. Washington accused Soleimani of masterminding attacks by Iranian – aligned militias on U.S. forces in the region.

Alqasimehr said the warrants had been issued on charges of murder and terrorist action. He said Iran had asked Interpol to issue a ‘red notice’ seeking the arrest of Trump and the other individuals the Islamic Republic accuses of Taking part in the killing of Soleimani.

Alqasimehr said the group included other U.S. military and civilian officials but did not provide further details.

U.S. Iran envoy Brain Hook said the warrant was a ‘propaganda stunt’ at a news conference in Saudi Arabia.

‘Our assessment is that Interpol does not intervene and issue red notice … (of) a political nature’, he said.

‘This is a political nature. This has nothing to do with national security, international peace or promoting stability… It is a propaganda stunt that no-one takes seriously’.

Interpol said in a statement that its constitution forbade it to undertake ‘any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character’.

‘Therefore, if or when any such request were to be sent to the General Secretariat’, it added, ‘…Interpol would not consider requests of this nature’.

Alqasimehr said Iran would continue to pursue the matter after Trump left office.
