(Reuters) - Iran has issued an arrest warrant for U.S. President Donald Trump and 35 others over the killing of top general Qassem Soleimani and has asked Interpol for help, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on Monday, according to the Fars news agency.

The United States killed Soleimani, leader of the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force, with a drone strike in Iraq on Jan. 3. Washington accused Soleimani of masterminding attacks by Iranian-aligned militias on U.S. forces in the region.


Alqasimehr said the warrants had been issued on charges of murder and terrorist action. He said Iran had asked Interpol to issue a “red notice” for Trump and the other individuals the Islamic Republic accuses of taking part in the killing of Soleimani.

Alqasimehr said the group included other U.S. military and civilian officials but did not provide further details.


He said Iran would continue to pursue the matter after Trump’s time in office ends.

The killing of Soleimani brought the United States and Iran to the brink of armed conflict after Iran retaliated by firing missiles at American targets in Iraq several days later.

Interpol rejects Iranian request to help in arresting Trump

The rejection of the request means Trump faces no danger of arrest, though the charges underscore the heightened tensions between Iran and the United States.

Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said earlier on Monday that Trump and 35 others whom Iran accuses of involvement in the January 3 strike that killed Soleimani in Baghdad face "murder and terrorism charges," the state-run IRNA news agency reported.

Alqasimehr did not identify anyone else sought other than Trump, but stressed that Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.

Alqasimehr also was quoted as saying that Iran requested a "red notice" be put out for Trump and the others, which represents the highest-level arrest request issued by Interpol.

After receiving a request, Interpol meets by 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.

Interpol later issued a statement saying its guidelines for notices forbids it from "any intervention or activities of a political" nature.

Interpol "would not consider requests of this nature," it said, according to AP.

One would think that is evil but also somewhat silly and yet in 2020 this is evil and also a whole bunch of seriousness intertwined. Some nut case in America or globally might want to try a pot shot at the POTUS to be a hero or perhaps for a hidden bounty. Not good.
 
Good luck enforcing that, Iran. Not to mention that's a felony:

Threatening the president of the United States is a federal felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making "any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the president of the United States".

Also, I do believe that's an act of war.

Iran been calling the US "Great Satan" since 1979. It was during THAT presidency they took US hostages, I can only imagine what they would attempt under Biden. He might make Jimmy Carter look like he was an assertive leader.

Father, PLEASE continue to RESTRAIN and have mercy upon America in Jesus Name, please do NOT give us what we deserve but rather bless the leaders who fear and honor your Word and cause them to have great favor and success during this meantime in which you have your Son tarry.
