Poland to deport Israeli to Germany

Yes, that is a headline from July 2010.

Poland is to deport an alleged Mossad agent to Germany.

Uri Brodsky, an Israeli suspected of involvement in the killing of a Hamas operative in Dubai, has three days to appeal the extradition order.

He was arrested in Warsaw in June for allegedly helping a Mossad agent obtain a false German passport by using a concocted story.

Judge Tomasz Talkiewicz said the court had not decided whether Mr Brodsky was behind the forgery.

He said: “The court only checked whether the extradition request fulfils the formal requirements and whether the suspect is correctly identified.”
