UK-based security firm G4S cooperated with U.S. forces in the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani by providing the U.S. with information about the senior Iranian counterterrorism commander, according to the Tehran prosecutor.
“One of the important and significant issues in this case is the role of the British company G4S in the assassination of the commander of the Al-Quds Brigade of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, who was in charge of air traffic control at Baghdad airport. The agents of this company informed the terrorists about General Soleimani and his companions upon their arrival in Baghdad,” Ali Alqasi-Mehr said Wednesday in a legal and judicial follow-up meeting on the terrorist attack on General Soleimani in Tehran.
Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Qatar, Jordan and Kuwait have received proxies from Iran to identify and arrest the culprits, according to the Tehran prosecutor.
Also, a committee would be set up to identify the whereabouts of U.S. terror suspects outside the United States in order to arrest and extradite them, he added.
He also disclosed that the U.S. air base in Germany had also been involved in sharing information between the American drones involved in the assassination of Gen. Soleimani, noting that letters rogatory had been issued in the prosecution of the case.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry also shared in a tweet Wednesday that the blood of General Soleimani “united” the Middle East region to “confront U.S. arrogance.”
“Over the past year, peoples across the region, from Iran and Iraq to India and Pakistan, showed their disgust for General Soleimani’s killers. His blood united our region to confront U.S. arrogance and presence. A true response to ruthlessness. The anger and unity remain,” the Iranian Foreign Ministry tweet read.
In the legal and judicial follow-up session on the terrorist attack on General Soleimani, Iranian Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raeisi described the commander of the Al-Quds Brigade of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a symbol of the fight against terrorism and a key figure in establishing security in the region.
Raeisi stated that the indictment for this assassination is not only a complaint on the part of General Soleimani’s family or the Iranian people, but also a complaint on the part of the Muslim world and the free people of the world against American state terrorism.
He added that there are enough documents to pursue the matter and demand the punishment of the perpetrators of this great crime.
