Top black police spied on by detectives’

Top black police 'spied on by detectives’

Scotland Yard launched a campaign of harassment against the National Black Police Association as part of its attempt to discredit one of its most senior officers, a new book claims today.

Officers seized a vanload of NBPA files from the Home Office without a search warrent. They then hired accountants to examine the expenses of its senior members.

The book also claims that the NBPA was so concerned that it was being bugged by the Yard that top members took a room at a Hilton hotel under the alias of “Mr and Mrs Brown” for a secret meeting.

The allegations are made in Not One of Us, the autobiography of Ali Dizaei, an Iranian-born Muslim. He was an outspoken critic of police racism who was targeted in a botched multi-million pound corruption investigation.

The book, serialised inThe Times, today also claims that:

- Supporters of Mr Dizaei were falsely briefed that he was a suspect in a 14-year-old rape investigation.

- Ken Livingstone’s police and race adviser believed he was being spied on by the Yard.

- The now chief constable of Devon and Cornwall objected to Mr Dizaei wearing a Black Police Association tie pin and drinking out of a BPA mug.

Mr Dizaei writes scathingly of the 44-strong investigation, which included intense surveillance, sting operations and attempts to recruit undercover Iranian officers from Australia and New Zealand. The investigation and prosecution, he says, cost more than £7 million. The police say it cost £2.2 million.
Also of note, his book's is being serialised by, you'll never guess who, the Times.

On a serious note, i can't believe that the Met are allowing a serving officer to air their dirty laundry in public. I would bet that they wouldn't allow an officer who's not a member of one of it's minority groups (British Womens police assoc, Gay and Lesbian police, black police, Muslim police) get away with this. The group that this "officer" (and i use the term loosely) is a member of is very devisive and is one of the first to call the police institutionaly racist.

Hmmm, i think that mr Dizaei could do with one of these.
