A spokesman for Iran’s courts announced lawsuits against President Donald Trump and the American armed forces generally in the Iranian legal system for the elimination of the nation’s terror chief Qasem Soleimani.

A U.S. airstrike removed Soleimani, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, and the head of Iraq’s Hezbollah Brigades Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis from the battlefield this month. As Quds Force chief, Soleimani led Iran’s international colonial efforts and orchestrated dozens of terrorist attacks — including IED attacks on American soldiers — to expand Iran’s influence. Soleimani played a large role in attacks on civilians in Syria, helped the Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen illegally seize power, and offered support to Iran’s socialist allies in Venezuela and throughout Latin America.

American - Officials - Trump - Intelligence - Soleimani

American officials, including Trump, have repeatedly stated they had intelligence suggesting Soleimani was planning “imminent” attacks on Americans in Iraq, where he spent most of the end of his life helping Baghdad target and kill civilian protesters.

Gholamhossein Esmaeili, spokesman for the Iranian Judiciary, told reporters Tuesday that the targeted strike against Soleimani was “a terrorist move” and that Trump would face Iranian justice in one of the world’s most notoriously unfair and violent legal systems.

Doubt - US - Military - Move - IRGC

“There is no doubt that the U.S. military has done a terrorist move assassinating IRGC Commander Lt. Gen. Soleimani and Second-in-Command of Iraq Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis … and Trump has confessed doing the crime,” Esmaeili said, according to Iran’s Mehr news service. “The firmest reason for accusing an individual is his confession.”

Esmaeili said that Iranian officials would “initially file a lawsuit in Iran, which is legal under the Islamic Penal Code.” He did not specify what redress the Iranian state would seek in that lawsuit, though it would presumably target Washington and the president for “terrorism.”
