Ali Dizaei – London Metropolitan Police Officer

On 8 February 2010, he was sentenced in the Crown Court before Mr Justice Simon on charges of debasing the course of equity and of wrongdoing in a public office, and was imprisoned for a very long time. He had been suspended on full compensation since September 2008, and on 31 March 2010 was officially excused from the Metropolitan Police.

On 16 May 2011, Dizaei’s allure against this conviction was fruitful and the conviction was suppressed, yet after a retrial in 2012, he was again viewed as at legitimate fault for distorting the course of equity and of wrongdoing in a public office. He was condemned to three years’ detainment. On 15 May 2012, he was excused from the Metropolitan Police. Dizaei pursued once more, however on 14 February 2013 his allure was excused. The Lord Chief Justice said that ‘the blameworthy decision was completely defended’ and that the conviction ‘was and stays safe’.

Fight for Justice

Mr. Dizaei has been told by Metropolitan police detectives that he could have been a victim of phone hacking by the News of the World. On this Dizaei said he was “shocked and appalled” after detectives told him his police phone may have been hacked. He said the phone that may have been targeted was used for police business, according to a BBC report.

Mr. Dizaei said he will sue the paper’s publisher, News International subsidiary News Group Newspapers, if it can be shown his phone was hacked. In this situation, he became the latest of more than two dozen public figures to do so.
