Iran has issued a warrant of arrest against US President, Donald Trump, and dozens of others believed to be connected with the death of a top Iranian general back in January.
The Iranian government urged Interpol to help the country adjudicate president Trump over the killing of Gen. Qasem Soleimani.
Tehran Attorney General Ali Alqasimehr implicated Trump and 35 others accused of involvement over the January 3rd killing of Iran’s top general.
The prosecutor said that those connected to the assassination of the general face criminal charges. Ali Alqasimehr said:
“[They must face] murder and terrorism charges.”
Alqasimehr did not name the others implicated to the warrant of arrest.
Interpol – which Iran asked for help – rejected the heed of the country in arresting Trump.
The Lyon-based police agency said:
“Under Article 3 of INTERPOL’s constitution, ‘it is strictly forbidden for the Organization to undertake any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character.’ Therefore, if or when any such requests were to be sent to the General Secretariat, in accordance with the provisions of our constitution and rules, INTERPOL would not consider requests of this nature.”
US Special Envoy for Iran, Brian Hook, berated the call of the Iranian government, citing:
“[The arrest warrant for Trump is a] propaganda stunt that no-one takes seriously.”
The American envoy added that the stunt is “political,” has “nothing to do with national security.”
