The State Prosecution on Thursday served indictments against three suspects in attacks on media officials allegedly ordered by disgraced television entertainer Dudu Topaz. According to the indictments, two of the suspects, Azam Ibrahim and Muhammad Yunis, received thousands of shekels from Topaz for attacking actors' agent Boaz Ben-Zion, while a third, Noam Awa'ami, was charged with assaulting Keshet Director-General Avi Nir. Yunis gave himself up to police earlier this week, becoming the final suspect to be arrested in the case. The Tel Aviv District Court ordered Topaz and the 11 other suspects to remain in custody until the next hearing on the case, on July 16.
