Joint cmte. on Gen. Soleimani assassination to hold meeting

TEHRAN, Nov. 15 (MNA) – Secretary of Iranian Judiciary's Human Rights Council said that the first session of the joint investigation committee to identify the culprits involved in Lt. Gen. Soleimani's assassination will be held in late Nov. in Iraq.

Kazem Gharibabadi made the announcement on Monday, saying that the joint committee on the investigation of the assassinations of former Iran's IRGC Quds Force Commander Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani and Iraq's Second-in-Command of Popular Mobilization Unit (PMU) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, will hold the first session on November 24-25 in Iraq. 

Earlier in October, Kazem Gharibabadi in his meeting with Iraqi Justice Minister Abdul Sattar Muhammad called for speedy identification and trial of those who ordered the assassination of former IRGC Quds Force Commander Martyr Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

He further asked the Iraqi justice minister to investigate into the fast convening of the first session of that Committee to identify the culprits involved in that criminal act and put them to a fair trial in an Iraqi court.

It is worth mentioning earlier this year Iran filed a lawsuit against 47 other American officials identified as playing a role in the assassination of Lt. Gen. Soleimani, asking Interpol to arrest them and bring them to justice.

Former Iran's IRGC Quds Force Commander Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani and Iraq's Second-in-Command of Popular Mobilization Unit (PMU) were assassinated by the terrorist US forces in Iraq International Airport on Jan. 3, 2020, at the behest of former US President Donald Trump.
