Polish court orders Mossad spy suspect extradited

July 7, 2010 6:33 P.M. (Updated: July 9, 2010 10:08 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an/Agencies - A Polish court has ordered the extradition to Germany of an Israeli man suspected of being a Mossad agent involved in the assassination of a high-ranking Hamas official in Dubai in January, the Associated Press reported Wednesday.

Warsaw district court Judge Tomasz Calkiewicz on Wednesday ordered that Uri Brodsky be extradited on charges of forgery, AP reported. Brodsky, an Israeli citizen, is suspected of helping fake a German passport that was used by a member of an alleged Mossad hit squad that killed Mahmoud Mabhouh in his Dubai hotel room in early 2010.

Brodsky was detained in Poland in June on an arrest warrant issued by Germany. According to AP, defense attorney Anna Mika-Kopec says she will not know whether she will appeal the extradition until the written ruling is issued by the court next week.

The suspect was was arrested in early June upon arrival at Warsaw's airport on suspicions that he helped a member of the hit squad get a German passport in the summer of 2009.

"He was arrested in Warsaw and is suspected of being involved in illegally obtaining a [German] passport," Agence France-Presse quoted a spokesman for German federal prosecution as saying at the time. "It's now up to the Poles to decide if they are going to hand him over to Germany," the spokesman said.
