A German prosecutor says an alleged Israeli spy is to be brought before a judge who will decide whether he has to remain in custody pending formal charges and a possible trial.

Rainer Wolf told The Associated Press on Friday that the closed-doors hearing would take place at an undisclosed location in Cologne at the request of defense lawyers.

'Mossad doesn't accept losers'

The alleged Mossad agent was extradited on Thursday from Warsaw to Germany.

Brodsky was arrested June 4 at Warsaw airport on a European arrest warrant issued by Germany, which accused him of espionage and helping to falsely obtain a German passport.

However, Brodsky won't face spying charges in Germany. The Polish court that granted the extradition request said he could only be sent to face prosecution for his alleged involvement in faking an identity.

Israel's suspected forgery of European passports allegedly used by members of a hit squad who took part in the killing of a Hamas leader in Dubai in January annoyed several European countries, including Britain, which expelled an Israeli diplomat over the matter in March.



Police in the United Arab Emirates said the elaborate hit squad linked to the Jan. 19 slaying of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh — one of the founders of Hamas' military wing — involved some 25 suspects, most of them carrying fake passports from European nations and Australia.
