Muslim Crybaby Cop denied promotion. Huge Tantrum to follow.

Yard rocked by race row as Senior Muslim officer fails to win promotion

Scotland Yard was plunged into a race row last night after one of the country's most senior Muslim officers failed in his bid for promotion. Chief Superintendent Ali Dizaei, an outspoken critic of racism in the Met, was one of ten officers hoping to be selected for the rank of Commander. But yesterday he was turned down for the £95,000-a-year post prompting a furious backlash from his supporters in the powerful National Black Police Association, to which he is legal adviser.

Here come the demands and veiled threats...
A senior official in the NBPA alleged Iranian-born Mr Dizaei, 44, may have been the victim of a 'personal vendetta' and demanded urgent talks with Met chief Sir Ian Blair to discuss the promotion snub. He also indicated the case could end up at an employment tribunal. In a separate statement, the Metropolitan Black Police Association said it was "extremely disappointed" that Mr Dizaei had not been selected by a four-strong police authority promotion board, which was advised by Sir Ian. "We suspect the decision of the Metropolitan Police Authority was not free from bias and could not have been reached on the basis of objective and fair criteria," it said. Three white officers were selected for the rank of commander, equivalent to the rank of assistant chief constable, instead of Mr Dizaei.

He even published a tell-all book about the force!

Mr Dizaei - head of policing in Hounslow, west London - has angered scores of colleagues by writing a controversial book about his time at Scotland Yard, which was serialised in a national newspaper last week. The timing of his book serialisation prompted claims that he was trying to put pressure on the police authority promotion board - a suggestion denied by Mr Dizaei.

He's dirty and he's a he-man-woman-hater...

In the book, entitled Not One Of Us, Mr Dizaei, writes scathingly about the four-year, multimillion-pound corruption investigation launched against him in 1999. He was accused of drug abuse, using prostitutes, spying for Iran and making a series of 'deeply unpleasant' threatening phonecalls to a girlfriend. It finally ended when he was cleared of perverting the course of justice and fiddling his expenses at the Old Bailey in 2003. In addition to the criminal charges, Mr Dizaei was accused of nine police disciplinary offences, including claims he accepted backhanders and interfered in investigations on behalf of friends.

He got off the hook thanks to a boneheaded dhimmi...then they threw the jizya his way...

No action was taken after the Met - under pressure from the then Home Secretary David Blunkett - came to a controversial deal with Mr Dizaei, which was brokered by Sir Ian.
In return for him dropping a race discrimination claim, he was told all outstanding counts against him would be scrapped and that he would also receive £60,000 in compensation.
He was also handed a place on a prestigious chief officers' promotion course at Bramshill police college.

Can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear...
But three years after finishing the course, he is yet to be given a higher rank.
Keith Jarrett, president of the NBPA, said he would be seeking an urgent meeting with Sir Ian Blair in the wake of the MPA's decision not to promote Mr Dizaei. He said he wanted "answers" from the Commissioner about why Mr Dizaei had been denied promotion when he led one of the best performing boroughs in London and had been graded as "exceptional" in his personal performance assessment.

More threats...

If these answers were not satisfactory, Mr Jarrett said the NBPA would take the matter "further" - possibly to an employment tribunal. Mr Dizaei had completed his senior command course three years ago - achieving the highest marks - and yet had still not been promoted, he said.


All nine other officers on the course had since been promoted to more senior roles, Mr Jarrett added. He also said that in the last five years, there had been no promotions of senior black or Asian officers within the Met. Mr Jarrett added: "I do not want to start levelling accusations of racism, but it worries me it could be a personal vendetta against Ali. "I need to satisfy myself that is not the case."

Ya think?

Asked whether Mr Dizaei's book could have affected his chances, Mr Jarrett said: "I am hoping that the Met would not be so vindictive as to say because he has written this book we will not promote him.

The MPA denies any unfair treatment. Neglecting to realize that Mr. Dizaei, being of the Muslim persuasion expects SPECIAL TREATMENT...
Len Duvall, chairman of the MPA, insisted Mr Dizaei had been treated fairly at the promotion board. "We categorically deny the Metropolitan Black Police Association's unwarranted attack on the integrity of our promotion process," he said. "Their allegation of bias amounts to a charge of discrimination. "That is wholly unsubstantiated and completely untrue. Our decisions on appointments were based, rationally and fairly, on merit."
