CEO of Tel Aviv-listed Fantasy Network Ltd. Dani Zadok physically attacked a board member during a board meeting recess, the company announced in a filing to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange Monday. Following the incident, Zadok asked the company’s executive team to take a 14-day leave of absence, the filing said. According to several people who spoke with Calcalist on condition of anonymity, Zadok reacted badly to questions raised by board members at a meeting last week, eventually attacking board member Shimon Cohen and threatening him with a chair. The incident took place after Zadok had been hospitalized for a few days due to health issues, the people said.
