Jerusalem/London: British police arrived in Israel Saturday to
interview Israelis with double passports whose identities were allegedly
used by the assassins of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai last
month, Israeli media reported.
Members of the British Serious Organised Crime Agency arrived in
Israel to question the six Israeli-British citizens whose passports were
allegedly faked together with Irish, French, German and Australian in
order to travel to United Arab Emirates.
Dubai police accused Israeli Intelligence Agency Mossad of using
forged passports to travel to Dubai and kill Hamas leader Mahmoud
al-Mabhouh, found dead in his hotel room Jan 20.
Dubai Police Chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim said Friday that there were DNA
evidence of one of the criminals and called Saturday to Mossad to
confess their involvement or issue a clear denial of the accusations
against the Israeli agency.
In a message to Mossad Chief Meir Dagan, Khalfan Tamim urged him to
“own up to his crime or unequivocally deny his organisation’s
involvement,” United Arab Emirates media reported.
Dubai police has called all Arab countries to carefully check any
Jewish citizen with double passport in order to “prevent Mossad’s
infiltrations,” newspaper Emarat Al Youm reported Saturday.
