Prosecutors accuse Uri Brodsky of illegally helping to procure a German passport used in connection with the slaying of a Hamas commander in Dubai.
Prosecutors say an alleged Mossad spy wanted in connection with the slaying of a Hamas leader in Dubai earlier this year has been set free on bail by a German judge on Friday.
Cologne prosecutors' spokesman Rainer Wolf said after a closed-doors hearing that the suspect known as Uri Brodsky is free to travel wherever he wants to go while judicial proceedings against him in Germany will continue.
Wolf said Brodsky could "return to Israel today if he wants to."
Prosecutors accuse Brodsky of illegally helping to procure a German passport used in connection with the Jan. 19 slaying of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai, allegedly by a Mossad hit squad.

The fact that they're releasing him on his own recognizance and letting him go to Israel (from which the German prosecutor well knows he can never be extradited) demonstrates that Germany still "gets it."
They might have helped with the hit job. :)
Its good to hear some positive info regarding other nations. Glad they are letting him leave.
“One never knows, do one?”
I'd love to see a factual movie of the hit, but Hollywood is incapable of producing one because they'd never portray the "victim" as the monster he was.
Foreign agents procuring stolen/lost passports in Germany is no small thing! But in this case it was for a good cause and I’m glad they let him go.
