Britain To Check Israeli Diplomats Passport First Before Expulsion


The UK is to expel an Israeli diplomat over 12 forged British passports used in the killing of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai in January.

David Miliband said there were “compelling reasons” to believe Israel was responsible for the forgeries.

The foreign secretary said the misuse of British passports was “intolerable” and that he hoped this expulsion would be the smack on the back of the legs the Israeli government justly deserved.

Israel’s ambassador to London, Ron Prosor, said he was “disappointed”, but Israel confirmed there would be no tit-for-tat diplomatic expulsion. This is due to the fact that they cannot be entirely sure if it will be a real Isreali Diplomat being sent home as they will have to check his Passport first.

Mr Prosor said: “The relationship between Israel and the UK is of mutual importance. After all where else could we pick up 12 passports in such a short time and that easy to forge?

The name of the diplomat has not been released.

Israel has previously said there is no proof it was behind the killing at a Dubai hotel. However, experts have stated that the killing points clearly in Israel’s direction and they definitely did not use the “spin the bottle game” to come to that conclusion.
