Met Commander Ali Dizaei jailed for corruption Met commander's 'abuse of power' Profile: Ali Dizaei Metropolitan Police Commander Ali Dizaei has been sentenced to four years for assaulting and falsely arresting a man in a dispute over £600. Southwark Crown Court was told Waad Al-Baghdadi was arrested by Dizaei in a row over work on the officer's website. Dizaei, 47, was convicted of both misconduct in a public office and perverting the course of justice. Prosecutor Peter Wright QC said he was guilty of a "wholesale abuse of power" motivated by self-interest and pride. Dizaei was ordered to spend two years in prison and two years on licence. Mr Justice Simon said the sentence included a deterrent element "to send a clear message that police officers of whatever rank are not above the law". The judge told Dizaei: "You knew how the system worked and you thought you would never be discovered. "You crossed that line and now stand convicted of these offences" Nauliza:.
