“The MPA’s Professional Standards Cases Sub-committee met today to consider the Tribunal’s report in Commander Dizaei’s case. The Tribunal hearing took place on Friday 26 March 2010.
“The Sub-committee has recorded the Tribunal’s finding that Commander Dizaei failed to meet the appropriate standard of conduct. He was in breach of Code 8 of the Code of Conduct because he was convicted of two serious criminal offences.
“The Tribunal recommended that the only appropriate sanction was dismissal from the service.
“The Sub-committee has accepted the Tribunal’s recommendation and has today dismissed Commander Dizaei from the Metropolitan Police Service with immediate effect.
“As far as the Authority is concerned this is the end of the matter.
“Commander Dizaei has the right to appeal against the MPA’s decision to a Police Appeals Tribunal.”
