Interpol dismisses Iran's request for arrest warrant for Trump over Soleimani killing

Interpol dismisses Iran's request for arrest warrant for Trump over Soleimani killing

Soleimani was killed in a United States drone strike at Baghdad International Airport in January along with five others, including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy head of the Iran-backed Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF). Red Notices are the highest-level arrest request that Interpol issues and "are issued for fugitives wanted either for prosecution or to serve a sentence".

Though Trump faces no real threat of arrest, the new charges offer fresh evidence that the tension between the USA and Iran shows no signs of subsiding.

Gen. Qassem Soleimani and his comrades were assassinated in Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020 at the behest of the US President Donald Trump.

Along with Trump, NPR's Peter Kenyon reports, "Iranian media quote Tehran's prosecutor general as saying 36 people are being sought in connection with Soleimani's killing".

Of course, that was the plan all along and it's all just an elaborate joke, but that makes what happens next even better. Soon, McAvoy claimed he had to attend a " Split " reunion, while Stewart cited " Star Trek ".

The Lyon-based organization told RIA Novosti if it receives a request to arrest Trump, its own rules will not allow it to act on it. Interpol acts as a liaison between law enforcement organizations in member states, helping them to collaborate with each other in solving crimes and arresting suspects trying to flee justice in a different jurisdiction. CNN has contacted Interpol for comment. 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.

The U.S. airstrike that killed Soleimani was championed by Defense Secretary Mark Esper as a "decisive defensive action". He said at the time Soleimani was plotting attacks on US diplomats and service members.

A retaliatory attack by Iran came on Jan 8, just days after the US airstrike. It came after months of incidents raising tensions between the two countries and ultimately saw Iran retaliate with a ballistic missile strike targeting American troops in Iraq. Though Trump reported at the time that no American troops were hurt, it's since been revealed that dozens of USA soldiers were treated for brain injuries.
