The expert assessed the request of Iran to search for trump for killing Soleimani
At the request of Iran in search of the President of the United States Donald trump for killing the General of the Islamic revolutionary guard Corps (IRGC) Qassem Soleimani has no prospects, says President and member of Executive Committee of Russian Association of international law Anatoly Kapustin.
Earlier it was reported that the judicial system of Iran demand from Interpol to announce an international arrest warrant for more than 30 people "participated in the preparation and dealing with the murder of Qasem Soleimani, among which are political and military leaders of the U.S. and other countries," including trump. In the headquarters of the organization in Lyon RIA Novosti reported that Interpol internal rules do not allow international organizations to consider the request of the judiciary authorities of Iran to search trump.
"There are two things. Acting senior officials of the States generally in the lists of Interpol is involved, because it's fraught with complications with these countries. The US is a member of Interpol. The second limitation is regarding the charges of terrorism, is one of the most dangerous crimes that Interpol responds, but they always scrutinize whether there is some political motive. Given the fact that there policy is a very strong smell, they might on this basis not to fulfill this request," said Kapustin RIA Novosti.
Under international law, senior officials of the countries enjoy immunity from prosecution as long as they perform their duties, he said Kapustin. If the person hiding the attack, "it is a typical operation, although since we are talking about officials, it was, no doubt, provocative act," the expert explained.
"If the Iranian court qualifies him as a terrorist, then maybe the person involved in the planning, can be prosecuted under the criminal laws of Iran," says Kapustin.
However, the prospects for the international development of this situation enough, he said. "The prospects are quite few, because the US, despite the fact that trump many do not like, stick very rigidly to the line - to anyone not to give their persons who in any way are charged abroad. It is unlikely that Americans will ever trump will give... It (the requirement of the Iran - ed.) is rather gesture of what justice in any case should prevail, and if not enough of the law, then at least to remind those who commit such acts, that it is not only immoral but also illegal", - he stressed.
The United States held in Baghdad on 3 January, the operation to eliminate Soleimani. In response, Iran has carried out missile attacks on Iraqi base where us troops are stationed. Initially, the President of the United States Donald trump and the Pentagon said that the victims of the shelling was not. Then the military were forced to admit that someone got hurt. Their number is constantly increasing.
