Hossein Amir Abdollahian noted that “we hope to witness a judicial ruling and influential judicial actions in this regard in the near future”.

Based on information obtained from judiciary officials, six states have been given letter rogatory so far and the Iran judiciary is pursuing the assassination of Soleimani, he further noted.

Hard revenge is on the agenda of Iran and it will be done in a proper way, he went on to say that.
