Warsaw: A lawyer for Uri Brodsky, an alleged Mossad agent under arrest in Poland, says he has appealed a Polish court`s decision to extradite him to Germany.

Brodsky is wanted in Germany for allegedly spying and helping to falsely obtain a German passport allegedly used in connection with the assassination of the Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Manhouh in a Dubai hotel in January.

Brodsky was arrested in Warsaw in June and earlier this month Warsaw`s district court ordered him extradited to Germany on the forgery charges.

One of Brodsky`s lawyers, Krzysztof Stepinski, said he filed an appeal to that decision on Monday in a bid to have him spared extradition to Germany and have him returned to Israel.
Stepinski said the appeals court would review the case August 05.
