The final suspect in the Dudu Topaz attacks case gave himself up to police on Sunday. The man, Muhammad Yunis, is suspected of attacking actors' agent Boaz Ben-Zion in an assault allegedly ordered by the disgraced television entertainer. It marks the second time Yunis has been under arrest after he was caught next to Ben Zion's home in April. He was then released after Ben-Zion failed to identify him or his alleged accomplice Roman Aliyev. Police began to search for the two again following developments in the case against Topaz, charged with hiring goons to assault Ben-Zion, Shira Margalit, deputy director-general of the Reshet television network, and Avi Nir, director-general of the Keshet network. Aliyev gave himself up last week, and Yunis on Sunday became the eighth suspect under arrest in the case, apart from Topaz.
