Germany won't drop 'Brodsky' investigation

Germany has refused to drop an investigation into the role of Israeli 'Uri Brodsky' in procuring a false German passport that was used by one of the liquidators of Hamas terrorist Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.
But despite Israel's demands, Germany will not invoke a law citing "overwhelming public interest" to halt the investigation into Brodsky's role in the killing.

The German government has asked Poland to extradite Brodsky for trial in Germany, something Israel had sought to prevent.

"Our obligation is to protect him from extradition to Germany," Israeli Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry Benjamin Ben-Eliezer told Der Spiegel. "But even if he does stand trial in Germany, it won't compromise the good relations between Israel and Germany."

Brodsky is suspected of using a lawyer in the German city of Cologne to acquire the passport, and is believed to have traveled there in March 2009, using the cover name Alexander Verin. Credit cards used during his trip were also used by him under the name Brodsky, investigators say.
Wouldn't it be funny if they really do have the wrong 'Uri Brodsky'? Heh.
