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.
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.

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.
The German authorities initially charged Brodsky with espionage activity in the Federal Republic and forgery of a passport.
A 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.
