The IRNA news agency quoted Tehran Prosecutor General Ali Alqasi-Mehr, who said that 36 individuals had been identified in connection with the assassination of Soleimani, who was killed at Baghdad's worldwide airport on 3 January.
Gen. Qassem Soleimani and his comrades were assassinated in Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020 at the behest of the US President Donald Trump.
As Breitbart News reported, the US military, at the direction of Trump, killed Iran's most significant military figure, Qasem Soleimani, in drone strikes in Baghdad in the first week of January in a huge blow to the Islamic Republic.
Authorities in Iran have approved a measure to ask Interpol to put US President Donald Trump on its global Red Notice of wanted persons over the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani, Iranian media including Mehr News and the Fars News Agency have reported, citing judicial officials.
He stated that Iran requested that a "red notice" be put out for Trump and the others, which is the highest level of arrest request issued by the Interpol.
According to Alqasi-Mehr, Iran would pursue Trump's prosecution even after the expiry of his term as president.
This came after months of incidents raising tensions between the USA and Iran.
Interpol, based in Lyon, France, did not immediately respond to Iran's demand. Washington accused Soleimani of masterminding attacks by Iranian-aligned militias on USA forces in the region.
Local authorities end up making the arrests on behalf of the country that request it.
It is unlikely Interpol would grant Iran's request as its guideline for notices forbids it from "undertaking any intervention or activities of a political" nature.
