Iraq: Accomplices to Soleimani, Muhandis assassination to be punished
The Supreme Judicial Council of Iraq announces that the Iraqi officials met with the Iranian judicial delegation as part of the work of the joint judicial committee.
The Supreme Judicial Council of Iraq announced that Iran hosted a joint meeting with Iraqi officials to exchange intelligence about the assassination of Iranian Al-Quds Force Commander General Qassem Soleimani and Iraqi PMF Deputy Chief Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, killed three years ago in a US drone strike near Baghdad airport.
In a statement, the council said that "the Iraqi legal delegation met with the Iranian judicial delegation as part of the work of the joint judicial committee between the two countries to share intelligence about the airport crime."
"The judiciary's approach in dealing with any evidence presented before it is in conformity with the laws in force and provided by the security forces in charge of the investigation," the statement read.
The statement has also stressed that the judiciary will take legal action against the perpetrators and accomplices.
This comes shortly after the Supreme Judicial Council of Iraq announced that it has issued an arrest warrant for former US President Donald Trump in connection with the assassination of General Soleimani and the deputy chief of the PMF.
The president of the Council Faiq Zidane stated that Trump has admitted to his "crime" in relation to the assassination of the "Leaders of Victory."
Moreover, on January 6, Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia' Al-Sudani paid tribute to General Qassem Soleimani and Secretary-General Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, calling their targeted killings a "brazen attack" on Iraq's sovereignty.
