The family of assassinated Hamas man Mahmoud al-Mabhouh lauded the arrest of an Israeli national in connection with the case, asking that he be tried in the United Arab Emirates.
Earlier Saturday, it was reported that Uri Brodsky was arrested by Polish authorities and is now facing extradition to Germany in connection with the Mabhouh assassination.
According to Mabhouh's family, the latest developments show that "the whole world rejects such crimes, carried out in cold blood, out of hand." In the statement, parts of which were published by al-Jazeera, the family urged the United Arab Emirates to act quickly and demand that the Israeli suspect be handed over to it, so he can be indicted at the site of the assassination.
According to the report, the German probe conducted in recent months revealed that Brodsky's role was to assist Mossad men in acquiring German passports. This would mean that Brodsky was responsible for the logistical operation in Germany in respect to the Mabhouh killing, where the hit team apparently used a real German passport issued to a "Michael Bodenheimer."
Polish officials confirmed that the Israeli suspect was detained in connection with the Dubai assassination.
