    Come on, you can't be surprised by that. You know that Germans are strict in such stuff. When there's clear evidence of a crime, the prosecutor has to open a case. Everything else would be a dereliction of duty, and may bring him/her into trouble. Of course, even here there still are cases where the Attorney General will try to influence the proceedings, but not when there's already so much media attention. That would be political suicide. And so, the Israeli requests can only backfire, because they increase the amount of reporting. As I already wrote in another thread to the topic, the best strategy would be to hire the best possible defense for "Brodsky", and make him plead guilty to the minor offense of fraudulently obtaining legal documents. He would have to stay in jail for some months, and that's it. Everything else can only result in making things worse.
