Lt.-Gen. Eli Gavizon, whose appointment to head the Prisons Service was canceled on Sunday, petitioned the High Court on Tuesday to have the decision reversed.

In the petition Gavizon’s lawyers argued that the appointment was unfairly canceled after anonymous report of his wrongdoings began surfacing days after his appointment was originally announced. Gavizon denied the allegations, which centered on claims that he had maintained intimate relations with five women from the Prison Service, one of whom was under his command at the time. Gavizon also argued that a lie detector test that he had reportedly failed, was conducted contrary to regulations and that its findings were inconclusive.
