Supreme Court President Justice Asher Dan Grunis and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni have announced that Judge Nissim Yeshaya has been requested to resign after he said that "some girls like to be raped" at a rape appeal court meeting.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu decided to withdraw his support for Yeshaya to head the Likud's internal court, calling Yeshaya's comment "unacceptable."

"A man who says such things is unfit to serve as the head of the Likud's court," said Netanyahu, who will now have to find a replacement candidate in the June 27 race.
