A lawyer for Uri Brodsky, an alleged Mossad agent under arrest in Poland, says he has appealed a Polish court's decision to extradite him to Germany.

Brodsky is wanted in Germany for allegedly spying and helping to falsely obtain a German passport allegedly used in connection with the assassination of the Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a Dubai hotel in January.

Poland to extradite alleged Mossad agent

Brodsky was arrested in Warsaw in June and earlier this month Warsaw's district court ordered him extradited to Germany on the forgery charges.

One of Brodsky's lawyers, Krzysztof Stepinski, said he filed an appeal to that decision Monday in a bid to have him spared extradition to Germany and have him returned to Israel.

Stepinski said the appeals court would review the case August 5.
