Iraqi court issues Trump arrest warrant

The Baghdad court has issued an arrest warrant for incumbent US President Donald Trump in the case of the death of the deputy head of the Iraqi Shiite militia Al-Hashd al-Shaabi, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, as a result of a US Air Force strike. This was announced on Thursday by the Al Arabiya TV channel.

According to him, the order was issued on the basis of a preliminary investigation in accordance with article 406 of the Iraqi Criminal Code. This article assumes the death penalty as the capital punishment for premeditated murder, the channel notes.

The court stressed that the investigation into the death of al-Muhandis continues “to find out the identities of other participants in the crime, whether they are Iraqis or foreign citizens”.
