German weekly Der Spiegel
reported Sunday that German authorities have issued a new arrest
warrant for alleged Israeli spy Uri Brodsky, who purportedly provided
the fake German passport used in the Dubai assassination in January
2010. Israel's suspected forgery of European passports allegedly used by
members of a hit squad who took part in the killing of Hamas leader
Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai in January annoyed several European
countries, including Britain, which expelled an Israeli diplomat over
the matter in March.
Brodsky was arrested June 4, 2010 at Warsaw airport on a
European arrest warrant issued by Germany, which accused him of
espionage and helping to falsely obtain a German passport.

The German authorities initially charged Brodsky with espionage activity in the Federal Republic and forgery of a passport.
Polish court ruled on July 7 that Brodsky could be extradited to
Germany based on the passport forgery charge, but not because of secret
service intelligence operations in the Federal Republic.
