Attorney: Poland Arrested the Wrong Brodsky
The attorney for Uri Brodsky, an Israeli being held in Poland over a connection to the group that eliminated top Hamas terrorist Mahmoud al-Mabhouh earlier this year in Dubai, told a Polish court that his client was innocent, and that he was a victim of mistaken identity. A check of his fingerprints versus the fingerprints on record lifted off a suspicious passport attributed to Brodsky would prove this, he said. That they share the same name is an “unfortunate coincidence,” he said.
