Poland to Extradite Brodsky to Germany

Polish prosecutors say they plan to hand over to Germany an Israeli man thought to be involved in the January assassination of a Hamas official in Dubai.

The individual identified as Uri Brodsky was arrested at the Warsaw airport on June 4. The man suspected of being a Mossad agent is accused of illegally obtaining a German passport used in the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

Germany has demanded that Brodsky be extradited, where he could be tried in a German court or even sent to Dubai for his suspected role in the assassination.

Poland’s prosecutor office says it will ask the Warsaw court to order the handover of the suspect to Germany.

The court says it will decide on the extradition within a month. The move comes despite Israel’s opposition to the suspect’s extradition to Germany.

In an interview with Press TV, George Jabour, an Independent Expert from UN Human Rights Council, says since the crime of forging a passport was committed in Germany, therefore Germany is the place that a possible trial should take place.

When asked that it seems that the West is not focusing on the act of terrorism by Israel and instead is zooming in on a less serious issue like passport forgery, Jabour said that the process of convicting Israel should nonetheless start from somewhere and the legal procedure should proceed step by step.

Falsification of a passport by the Mossad agent, as Jabour puts it, is a very evident crime and legal procedures should initially start on this charge. At the next stage prosecutors could proceed with charges of assassination and terrorism.
