Reports in Germany claim that a new arrest warrant has been issued in respect of Israel’s assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh in Dubai. The German newspaper Der Spiegel said that Germany issued a warrant for the arrest of Yuri Brodsky, an Israeli suspected of involvement in the assassination of Mr Al-Mabhouh exactly a year ago. Brodsky was released on bail by the German authorities in August 2010. He is accused of assisting in the issue of a German passport for one of the murderers of Al-Mabhouh called Michael Bodenheimer; the passport was used to enter Dubai to carry out the assassination. According to Der Spiegel, the charge of passport counterfeiting was dropped from Brodsky’s indictment in exchange for a fine of €60,000.
