The Iranian government has filed a “red notice” with Interpol that requests the arrest of President Donald Trump and 47 other American officials for the assassination of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Major General Qassem Soleimani, according to The Independent.
The Islamic Republic of Iran is very seriously following up on pursuing and punishing those who ordered and executed this crime, said Iranian Judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili.
Interpol did not grant Iran’s previous arrest warrant for President Trump back in June, but now they believe since the President has lost the election, it will be easier for them to take him into custody. In June, Interpol said that its own constitution forbids it from taking on any “intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character.”
Some international experts have said that they believe after Trump’s presidency is over, they may be able to get him to Iranian officials for prosecution.
Qassem Soleimani was killed in an airstrike on January 3, 2020.
