Iran issues arrest warrant for President Trump over drone strike that eliminated arch-terrorist Soleimani
BREAKING: The Islamic regime of Iran has issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining President Trump and more than 30 others for involvement in the January 3 drone strike that eliminated arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad.
While President Trump faces no danger of arrest, the charges underscore the heightened tensions between Iran and the United States.
Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said Trump and 30 others face “murder and terrorism charges,” but did not identify anyone else other than Trump and stressed that Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.
Alqasimehr was also quoted as saying Iran had requested a “red notice” be put out for Trump and the others, the highest-level notice issued by Interpol, requesting that seeks the location and arrest of the individual named.
After receiving a request, Interpol meets by a committee and discusses whether or not to share the information with its member states. Interpol has no requirement for making any of the notices public, though some do get published on its website.
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.
Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s extra-territorial terror group Quds Force chief, was eliminated in a drone strike on January 3 while being driven from Baghdad airport by local Iran-backed terrorists.
