Iran Issues Arrest Warrant For Trump, Requests Interpol’s Help
The country of Iran has issued an arrest warrant for President Trump and is seeking Interpol to help execute the arrest, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
- Donald Trump and those involved in the killing of top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad earlier this year currently have arrest warrants from the Iranian government.
While Trump faces no danger of arrest, the charges underscore the heightened tensions between Iran and the United States since Trump unilaterally withdrew America from Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers.
- Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said Trump and 30 others would be facing “murder and terrorism charges.” The prosecutor indicated they would not stop pursuing this even after Trump’s term ends.
- Interpol did not respond to a request for comment but they may or may not discuss taking action against the president, which can be done privately or publicly. However, it is highly unlikely that Interpol would take action against the president because they do not deal with crimes that are political in nature.
