The mediator in one of the Dudu Topaz-ordered attacks was sentenced to five years in jail on Thursday.

The man, Ophir Sasportas, was also ordered by the Tel Aviv District Court to pay his victim, Keshet director-general Avi Nir, NIS 70,000.

The troubled life of television star Topaz came to a tragic end last year, when he strangled himself in the bathroom of his prison cell, in Ramle's Nitzan Detention Center.
