Metropolitan Commander Ali Dizaei, who was suspended months ago over various allegations, has been charged with misconduct in public office & attempting to pervert the course of justice.
I’ve never been a fan of this man, in fact I’d go as far as to suggest the man is a bloody disgrace to the uniform, not least for his lead of the Black Police Association & their shenanigans in their anti-police stance where they have advised black people not to join the police (happy to themselves be employed & not resign but not happy for others to join, which seems somewhat ironic).
I reported back in September last year on the incident which lead to the charges this week. Dizaei was off duty when he became involved in an off duty incident at a restaurant in which he alleges he was assaulted by another male whom he subsequently arrested. To quote from my original blog entry “The CPS has said that after examination of CCTV footage & Ă˘â‚¬Ëśother evidenceĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ it has found Ă˘â‚¬Âť Ă˘â‚¬Ëśa number of significant factual conflictsĂ˘â‚¬Âť & dismissed any criminal case against the man.“
The CPS said yesterday that after an IPCC investigation they were satisfied that there is enough evidence to support charges. The maximum sentence is life imprisonment.
