CPS statement on dismissal of Ali Dizaei's appeal against conviction

14/02/2013

Gaon Hart, Senior Crown Advocate for the CPS Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division, said: "We welcome today's decision and the clarification it provides of the legal position. Mr Dizaei has been convicted by two separate juries for his conduct on that night and we hope that this concludes the matter.

"At the heart of this case was the mistreatment of a member of the public by a very senior police officer and Dizaei's attempt to abuse his position of trust to cover up his actions. However, no-one is above the law and those who abuse their position and betray the trust the public place in them should expect to be brought to justice."
