And the verdict is…

Posted in The Job - General by 200

At last Met Commander Ali Dizaei is having his day in court. As reported back in May last year, Dizaei – he of the chequered police career – is up in court on charges of assault, false arrest, misconduct in public office and perverting the course of justice.

He was charged after an incident at a London restaurant when he had an ‘incident’ with someone he had engaged to work on his private website who demanded payment. He arrested the man (whilst off duty) & alleged the man had stabbed him in the stomach with part of a pipe. The police surgeon who examined him was of the opinion that the injury suffered by Dizaei may have been self-inflicted & the CPS found significant differences between his evidence & that provided by CCTV & other witnesses.

The case is set to run for a few weeks. I wonder what the outcome will be, guilty or innocent & if guilty, what the penalty will be. Cash prizes await the winner.*

*provided that winner is me.

    To paraphrase the great Ali-G ‘you is, like, bee-in, racalist, innit?’

    Leave him alone!

    That paragon of virtue. target of racial slurs and a racially motivated hate campaign Uncle Ali will clear his name!

    The allegations are like all the rest, made up by a jealous racist police service and ….

    err.. CCTV?

    actually the blaggard needs the whip, never mind a fine and a PSD investigation…

    err… ACPO?

    ah…

    I was gonna try and make some wise crack about him getting off cos it’ll be a racist attack but….damn you bender the robot…you got there first and did it so much better than I could’ve!

    My money is in guilty – no punishment (apart from a holiday, full pension and perhaps a medal).

    This man has a proven track record of winging his way out of the most outrageous situations so I won’t hold my breath about him being finished just yet – more’s the pity. I just wonder at what point in his defence the racism card is played. In my opinion the man is an out and out crook, mind you he isn’t the first and he certainly won’t be the last – a couple of (now retired) Ch Supts from my old force managed to get away with sexual assaults, blackmail, perverting the course of justice and a myriad of other more minor offences until it was suggested they quietly retire as an alternative to someone actually investigating the accusations against them (one was in PSD so had received the nod and wink). Strangely enough they aren’t seen at many reunions – wonder why? For the grammatically inclined, so sorry about the mega sentence there!

    well ‘Doc’…

    when you write a statement about what you want people to think happened- its always a good idea to check there is no cctv showing what DID happen…

    It will be interesting, and instructive to see what happens. Will Justice be done and seen to be done, or….? I put my money on or..
