Germany to re-arrest ‘Mossad agent’

PressTV – Sun Jan 16, 2011 7:13AM

Alleged Mossad agent known as Uri Brodsky, (2nd L), is being escorted by armed Polish anti-terrorist police officers to court in Warsaw, July 7, 2010.
Germany has reportedly issued a new arrest warrant for an Israeli suspected of involvement in the assassination of a Hamas official in Dubai.

The prominent German weekly, Der Spiegel, reported in its Sunday edition that German authorities issued a new arrest warrant for an Israeli national identified as Uri Brodsky.

The report did not specify the new charges against Brodsky, an alleged Israeli Mossad agent suspected of involvement in the terror of Palestinian leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a Dubai hotel room on January 19, 2010.

Brodsky allegedly helped a man, identified as Michael Bodenheimer, to obtain a counterfeit German passport. The passport was used by Bodenheimer, a member of the hit squad involved in the assassination of al-Mabhouh, to enter Dubai.

Brodsky was arrested at Warsaw’s international airport based on a German arrest warrant issued in June, 2010. Warsaw’s district court ordered his extradition to Germany.

After 24 hours in jail in Germany, he was released on a bail of 100,000 euro in August.

The count of passport forgery has been removed from Brodsky’s charge sheet in exchange for a 60,000 euro fine, the report added.

Police officials in Dubai have implicated Israeli agents in the killing of the Hamas leader, releasing evidence that showed Mossad-linked assassins using forged foreign passports.

Dubai authorities say at least 27 Mossad operatives were involved in the assassination of the Hamas leader.
