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.
verdict is very good'Poland to
extradite alleged Mossad agent
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.
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.
