Iran has issued an arrest warrant against Donald Trump for the murder of General Qassem Soleimani and has asked Interpol to help him detain him.

Tehran called for Interpol red notice on 36 US political and military figures, including the president, the official press agency of the Islamic Republic reported Monday.

Iranian prosecutor Qasi Mehr said the figures were charged with “murder and terrorist acts” for the murder of Soleimani by an American drone in Baghdad in January.

Soleimani’s January 3 strike was justified by the US Department of Defense as “aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans”.

The President has broad powers in matters of military conflict under the United States’ constitution. However, some experts have questioned the legality of the strike.

The international allies of the United States, notably the United Kingdom and Germany, criticized the strike at the time, Berlin warning that it risked a “dangerous escalation” in the region.

Interpol has not yet responded to Iran but has the power to refuse their request.

Red notices are sent to law enforcement agencies worldwide to request that the individual be located and arrested, but they do not require them to do so.

Interpol is unlikely to accept Iran’s request for red notification, since it is required under its own regulations to reject any request it considers to be politically motivated.
