The Supreme Court increased the sentences of two men involved in the 2009 assaults of television executive Shira Margalit and actors' agent Boaz Ben-Zion that were ordered by deceased entertainer Dudu Topaz.
Daniel Zanko, convicted of connecting Topaz with the hired thugs who carried out the assaults, had his punishment increased from three to five years in jail. Suleiman Hiadra, who carried out the assault on Margalit was sentenced to serve 4 years in jail instead of the previous 30 month sentence.
The new sentences came as a result of a petition filed by the state requesting that the men's punishment be made more severe.
