Ali Dizaei: Met Police commander jailed for corruption

Metropolitan Police commander Ali Dizaei has been jailed for three years for misconduct in a public office and perverting the course of justice.

He attacked Waad al-Baghdadi in Kensington in 2008 and then inflicted injuries on himself in order to frame him, Southwark Crown Court heard.

Dizaei, of Acton, told the court he felt threatened by Mr al-Baghdadi.

He was first convicted in 2010 and served 15 months in prison before his conviction was quashed.

Danny Shaw reports.
