Alleged Mossad agent Alexander Verin (aka Uri Brodsky) along with another man going by the name "Michael Bodenheimer" discussed acquiring a passport for Bodenheimer in late March 2009 with a German lawyer in Cologne, weekly Der Spiegel reported on Monday.

Bodeheimer with Verin's assistance claimed that his father, Hans, had emigrated to Israel to escape persecution under Nazi rule and provided his supposed parents' marriage certificate and his "father's" passport.

Alexander Verin is currently awaiting extradition proceedings that seek to transfer him from Polish authorities to Germany.
