British security firm G4S provided information about Gen. Soleimani to terrorists: Tehran prosecutor

…from PresssTV, Tehran

[ Editor’s Note: The anniversary was bound to stir up the retribution fires over the US drone strike on the Soleimani team that flew to Baghdad for a meeting to discuss deescalating tensions in the Persian Gulf.

At the time, world media showed no interest in that aspect of the assassination. VT got the news quickly from the reporter who posted his notes on Twitter of the parliamentary conference held soon after, where Soleimani’s Iraqi hosts confirmed it was a diplomatic meeting.

Was the prospect of peace in the region the possible trigger for his elimination? VT has a long history of studying the ‘threats’ that unwanted peacemakers expose themselves to when challenging the endless war and chaos machine. Messing with their money making machine can get you killed.

As Trump waits out what is expected to be his last days in office, we still have had no adjustments made to the US claim that it had no fatalities during the big Iraq air base ballistic missile retaliation by Iran, a tragedy to those US serviceman serving at the base with no air defense.

Iran chose a soft target to hit to illustrate that the US had miscalculated, and also to put the accuracy of its missiles on display. Its promise to bring those responsible for the Soleimani assassination to justice is a classic “eye for an eye” promise, and not viewed as an idle threat.

This will put the Biden administration in an awkward spot, if it happens early during his administration when he has indicated an positive attitude toward bringing the US back into the JCPOA.

But now we have to worry that Trump might want to order a retaliation attack on Iran for the US airbase attack, just to leave that mess on Biden’s plate. Would the US military carry out such a self-serving Trump attack for spite on Biden? Our sources indicate the generals would not allow themselves to be abused like that Jim W. Dean ]

Tehran Prosecutor Ali Alqasi-Mehr says United Kingdom-based security company G4S collaborated with US forces in the assassination of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani by providing the US with information about the top Iranian anti-terror commander.  

“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 Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), which was responsible for flight securing at Baghdad airport, and the agents of that company provided information to the terrorists about General Soleimani and his companions upon their arrival,” the official said on Wednesday.

The judicial official made the remarks during a legal and judicial follow-up session on the assassination case of General Soleimani.

He added that the six countries of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Qatar, Jordan and Kuwait have been given warrants from Iran to identify and arrest the culprits.

A committee has also been set up to track down the whereabouts of American terrorist suspects outside the United States to arrest and extradite them, he added.

He said that the US air base in Germany was also involved in the exchange of information among the American drones that were involved in the assassination of General Soleimani, noting letters rogatory have been issued in pursuing the case.

US terrorists assassinated General Soleimani, along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy head of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), and their companions by targeting their vehicle outside Baghdad International Airport on January 3.

The cowardly act of terror was carried out under the direction of US President Donald Trump, with the Pentagon taking responsibility for the strike.

General Soleimani is viewed by the world’s freedom-seeking people as the key figure in defeating Daesh, the world’s most notorious terrorist group, in the Middle East battles.

‘Gen. Soleimani’s blood united our region in opposing US arrogance’

The Iranian Foreign Ministry in a post on Twitter on Wednesday said that the blood of General Soleimani “united” the Middle East region in “opposing US arrogance,” adding, “The anger & unity still stand.”

“Last yr, across the region, from #Iran & Iraq to India & Pakistan, ppl showed disgust for murderers of Gen Soleimani. His blood united our region in opposing US arrogance & presence. A real response to recklessness. The anger & unity still stand,” said the tweet with the hashtag #WillNeverForgetWillNeverForgive.

‘Indictment against Gen. Soleimani assassination culprits demand of Muslim world, free nations’

During the legal and judicial follow-up session on the assassination case of General Soleimani, Iran’s Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raeisi described General Soleimani as the symbol of anti-terrorism fight and a key figure in providing security for the region and said the indictment for his assassination is not only a legal lawsuit pursued by his family or the people of Iran, but also an indictment demanded by the Muslim world and the free people of the world against American state terrorism.

He added that there are sufficient documents to pursue the matter and request punishment for the perpetrators of this huge crime.

He noted that the judiciary would pursue the case as part of the tough retaliation against the US.

  1. It would actually surprise me if Britain wasn’t the sanctioning party.

    Incredibly baffling how much people trust them and have no idea how they operate. To think the rejection of that, was the founding ideal, is almost foreign today, now that’s good Pr work.

  2. “But now we have to worry that Trump might want to order a retaliation attack on Iran for the US airbase attack, just to leave that mess on Biden’s plate.”

    No, Trump which our friend from Russia prefers his brand of diplomacy over Biden’s, Clinton’s and Obama’s has to payback Adelson for the only job he was hired, a filthy criminal far more dangerous than the two democrat presidents and the VP combined.

    Russians will always have liberal phobia. Only if they could open their eyes they would see that the majors wars of republicans which is pretty much all of the wars of the past 60 years have affected them more than the years of tough diplomacy with the democrats. They are even being screwed by Likud as we speak. But Clinton who was pumped by Likudniks of the like of James Rubin to stop the Muslim massacre in Bosnia was/is bad for Russia. Every single criminal raping Russia during the Yeltsin years was a republican and a Likudnik.

    Suffice to say that Soleimani saved Russia’s interests in Syria. And when the Israelis wanted to kill Soleimani during the years of Obama he adamantly opposed it. They still managed to kill the nuclear scientists without the US prior knowledge. But Trump gave them a carte blanche to do as they please. And this is their last chance.

    • I don’t care what the last name of the President of the United States is. I live in Russia and I am proud of it!
      I do not want to live in a country (and I do not advise you!), where:
      – the president has a prostitute sucking his dick in the oval office
      – LGBT marches are held and children are corrupted from childhood
      – where are representatives of big business in power (medicine, the Internet, weapons)
      – where the sect of pedophiles and Satanists rules the show
      – where they can attack and bomb a foreign country under any pretext
      – where homosexuals have more rights than normal people
      – where monuments are demolished and history is rewritten
      – where they kneel and kiss the shoes of citizens of a country of a different skin color
      – where the old bitch Pelosi offers to remove the concepts: mom, dad, sister, brother, daughter, son
      – where crazy people live among normal people
      – where people choke on drugs and die like dogs on the streets
      – where there are more people in prisons than there were in the USSR GULAG
      I can give 100 more examples. Such a freedom you protect?!
      But this is all – your government, all of them, both parties. Psychos and sick seniors rule in the USA. And you sit on your sofas sipping beer and playing Democrats and Republicans.
      In a nightmare I can’t imagine such a thing in my country. This will never be the norm!
      Go save your country!

    • And for me it is not normal when both incumbent President Trump and presidential candidate Biden allow themselves from the rostrum to the whole world to declare that Russia is enemy number 1 (ungrateful creatures), forgetting that Russia has always helped and was a reliable partner.
      How should I treat both of them after that?

    • Gee man I guess I should move to Russia where there are no gay people. Remember when the Iranian president Ahmadinejad said there are no gays in Iran people didn’t think that what he meant was that since the LGBTQ have no legal recognition and no status has been given to them they actually don’t exist. So in order to give them recognition “beginning in the mid-1980s, transgender individuals were officially recognized by the government and allowed to undergo sex reassignment surgery. As of 2008, Iran carries out more sex change operations than any other nation in the world except Thailand.” And the government pays for the surgery.
      That’s one way to give them status. And the stories about stoning etc it’s media circus.
      But I don’t know how Russia deals with the issue. Like the abortion topic in Kentucky which keeps McConnell re-elected for life, Russia and its iron fist keeps the country “clean” and the issue in the closet. That’s also another method of dealing with the problem.

      And corruption is everywhere. You and I don’t practice it and that’s our personal choice but it doesn’t mean that the same exact issue doesn’t exist in a different setting in another country. Putting up a resemblance of purity and denying its existence doesn’t wash it off, especially in old proud cultures like yours and mine.

    • @David
      David, of course not. I never aspired to this. There are simply things that cannot be tolerated. And things should be called by their proper names. ‘Cause we may go too far with that.
      Well, am I in something wrong from what I have listed?

  3. Hoping that Trump will not enable another false flag into his antiIranian legacy (which is exaggerated because of Israel, personally I dont think Trump can locate Iran on the world map)
    we have yet to grasp Biden’s views on Syria, Assad, Kurds, Lebanese etc. Will Biden attempt to “defeat ISIL” or what ever is the abbreviation of his preference. Will Biden challenge perpetual war-state? During the election quite possibly, but once into office I’m not so sure

    • Trump made a lot of unpleasant moments. I speak as a representative of the Russian Federation. Under him, our relations have become the worst between our countries. And the United States slipped to the level of a banana republic. The sad sight of the collapse of Rome. But we are even more suspicious of Biden. If he brings along the whole gang of Clintonoids, freaks who were under Obama, then it will be even worse for the Americans and for us. But I’m not Nostradamus, so I can’t say for sure. Wait and see. It is an internal affair of the Americans, which dictator to choose and which regime will be in Washington. Personally, I support a strong and normal America with which it will be possible to have normal pragmatic relations and deal with serious issues on the planet.

  4. “Our sources indicate the generals would not allow themselves to be abused like that.”

    Sorry, Jim, these are the same generals who stood down on 9/11 and enthusiastically participated in all the wars of this century, all for Israel.
