Lt.-Gen. Eli Gavizon, whose appointment to head the Prisons Service was canceled last Sunday withdrew his petition to the High Court asking to be reinstated, on Wednesday, after the judges advised him to do so.

In the petition Gavizon’s lawyers argued that the appointment was unfairly canceled after anonymous report of his wrongdoings, including claims that he had maintained intimate relations with five women from the Prison Service, began surfacing days after his appointment was originally announced.

Gavizon denied the allegations, but agreed to withdraw his petition after the Judges indicated that they would rule in favor of the Internal Defense Minister, stating that it was within the minister’s legal right to remove a candidate from the selection process.
