Iran's government demands immediate arrest of United State president
History in making as Iran government has issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining United States President Donald Trump and dozens of others it believes carried out the drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad International Airport. This arrest warrant was in response of an allegation by Tehran prosecutor Ali who said on Monday that Trump, along with more than 30 others Iran accuses of involvement in the January 3rd, 2020 attack that killed an Iranian General should face "murder and terrorism charges".
This fresh demand by Iran government to arrest the United States President has further complicated the stands of the Iranian government to execute an alleged ‘CIA spy’ involved in the killing. The spy was arrested by local authorities on behalf of the country that requested it. The notices cannot force countries to arrest or extradite suspects, but can put government leaders on the spot and limit suspects' travel.
The "red notice" placed on the United States President and the others, is the highest level notice issued by Interpol. Although It is unlikely that Interpol would grant Iran's request as its guideline for notices forbids it from "undertaking any intervention or activities of a political" nature. The assassination came after months of incidents raising tensions between the two countries and ultimately saw Iran retaliate with a ballistic missile strike targeting American troops in Iraq.
