Iran Issues Warrant For US President Donald Trump For Killing Soleimani
IRAN VS US – In a spontaneous turn of events, Iran issues a warrant of arrest for US President Donald Trump.
Earlier this year, tensions between the United States and Iran escalated to an all-time high. This was after the US killed Iran’s top general, Qassem Soleimani.
Following his death, there was a back and forth show of power between the two nations. Iran deployed warning shots at US airbases but not direct enough to begin an all-out war.
However, the United States imposed an economical boycott of Iran which greatly affected the country. Afterward, tensions began to die down between the US and Iran.
But, recently, Iran issued a warrant of arrest for non-other than US President Donald Trump. A warrant was issued over for Trump and 35 others for killing of Qassem Soleimani. Furthermore, they have asked Interpol for assistance.
Meanwhile, the United States and Interpol both dismissed the idea of entertaining the warrant. Now, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said the warrants were issued as charges of murder and terrorist action.
According to an article from ABS-CBN, Alqasimehr requested Interpol to issue a “red notice” which called for the arrest of Trump and those involved in the death of Soleimani.
However, this was seen by the US Iran envoy Brian Hook as mere propaganda. “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.”, said Hook.
In a response, Interpol said “any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character” is not allowed in their constitution.
Therefore, if or when any such requests were to be sent to the General Secretariat,” it added, “… Interpol would not consider requests of this nature
Still, Alqasimehr stood his ground and said that Iran would pursue Trump’s arrest after the POTUS would leave his office.
