    Exclamation Iranian Spy In Scotland Yard

    علی ديزايی، يکی از ارشدترين افسران آسيايی تبار در پليس لندن بزرگ، در آستانه انتشار کتاب زندگينامه اش و شرح جزئيات اتهاماتی که به چهار سال انفصال او از خدمت پليس اسکاتلند يارد منجر شد، در رقابت با ديگر همقطارانش برای ارتقای درجه ناموفق ماند.
    در حالت عادی، هيچيک از اين دو واقعه خبرساز نيست ولی سرتيپ علی ديزايی يک افسر عادی نيست.

    اين افسر 44 ساله ايرانی تبار چند سال از طرف کارآگاهان اسکاتلنديارد زير نظر بود.

    در عملياتی مخفی با نام "هليوس"، بين سالهای 2001 تا 2003 تمام تماسها و رفت و آمد او زير نظر گرفته شد و عاقبت اتهاماتی از پارتی بازی اداری گرفته تا خرج تراشی برای پليس لندن و صرف غذای مجانی در رستورانهای ايرانی و جاسوسی برای جمهوری اسلامی را شامل می شد.

    پرونده ای که عمليات هليوس عليه علی ديزايی تنظيم کرد به اتهامی رسمی و انفصال او از خدمت منجر شد.

    محاکمه علی ديزايی که تحصيلاتش در رشته حقوق است و سالهاست مشاور حقوقی انجمن افسران پليس لندن وابسته به اقليتهای قومی است به نوبه خود خبرساز شد و باز در جنجالی کم سابقه با رأی هيئت منصفه در دادگاه مرکزی لندن به اعلام بيگناهی علی ديزايی انجاميد.

    پليس اسکاتلنديارد به حکم دادگاه مجبور به پرداخت خسارت به افسری شد که نه تنها در درجه قبلی اش ابقا شد بلکه ديری نگذشت که ترفيع درجه گرفت و رئيس پليس منطقه ای بزرگ در غرب لندن شد.

    غيرخودی (Not One of US)

    علی ديزايی نام زندگينامه اش را "غيرخودی" گذاشته و در آن مدعی است که تعصبات نژادی در تشکيلات پليس اسکاتلنديارد ريشه ای عميق دارد، اتهامی که چند سال پيش افسران ارشد اين نيرو هم به آن اعتراف کردند و برنامه آموزشی ويژه ای برای مبارزه با آن آغاز شد.

    در کتاب غيرخودی که اشاره ای است به مقاومت افسران ارشد در مقابل ارتقای درجه افسران متعلق به اقليتهای قومی، علی ديزايی از افسرانی نام برده که به ادعای او هدفشان خدشه دار کردن اعتبار و شهرت وی به عنوان يک افسر پليس بوده و باز مدعی است که در اين راه عمليات هليوس طرح ريزی شد و ميليونها پوند هزينه صرف شد تا ثابت کنند که او هم جاسوس جمهوری اسلامی است و هم اهل پارتی بازی و خاصه خرجی.

    وفاداری به اسکاتلنديارد

    چند روز پيش از انتشار کتاب غيرخودی خبر ناکامی علی ديزايی برای گرفتن درجه فرماندهی در پليس اسکاتلنديارد منتشر شد و بعضی از رسانه ها علت آن را انتشار بخشهايی از کتاب زندگينامه وی به صورت پاورقی در روزنامه های لندن وانمود کردند.

    ولی علی ديزايی در مصاحبه ای با شبکه 2 تلويزيون بی بی سی گفت از اينکه موفق به اخذ درجه بالاتر نشده، متأسف است اما وفاداری اش به پليس اسکاتلنديارد به قوت خود باقی است و گمان نمی کند که در رقابت بر سر درجه فرماندهی پارتی بازی در کار بوده باشد.

    با اين وجود وی گفت منتظر دريافت نظر هيئت تعيين کننده برنده اين انتصاب است.

    Scotland Yard chief 'victim of vendetta'



    Scotland Yard spent millions of pounds executing a "personal vendetta" against one of its most senior officers, a new book claims today.


    Chief Superintendent Ali Dizaei
    A four-year investigation into Chief Superintendent Ali Dizaei included a campaign of harrassment against the National Black Police Association (NBPA), it is claimed.

    The officer, legal adviser to the NBPA and one of Britain's most senior ethnic minority police officers, had his phone unlawfully tapped and was accused of corruption, drug abuse, using prostitutes and spying for Iran.

    In his book, Not One Of Us, Chief Supt Dizaei makes a series of allegations against the force and fellow-high ranking officers and writes scathingly of the Scotland Yard investigation which ended when he was acquitted of all charges at the Old Bailey in 2003.


    He says officers seized a number of NBPA files from the Home Office without a search warrant, and then paid accountants to examine the expenses of the association's senior members.

    The NBPA was so concerned that telephone calls were being intercepted, that top members booked into a hotel using aliases for a clandestine meeting.

    The officer says his supporters were falsely briefed that he was linked to a "14-year-old rape assault".

    Even the Mayor of London's police and race adviser Lee Jasper feared he was subject of undercover surveillance by the Yard, it is claimed.

    The officer also claims that Britain's most senior Asian policeman, Tariq Ghaffur, an Assistant Commisioner at Scotland Yard, believed that Mr Dizaei was the victim of a "personal vendetta".

    In a statement last night, Scotland Yard said it "regretted" the officer had chosen to publish the book, due out later this month.

    "It is not our intention to comment on Superintendent Dizaei's personal recollection and interpretation of specific events," the statement added.

    Met tried to 'take out' black officers



    A senior Muslim policeman is to accuse several high-ranking officers at Scotland Yard of trying to "take out" members of the National Black Police Association (NBPA), in a book to be published next month.



    It is understood that Ch Supt Ali Dizaei will claim that certain colleagues in the Metropolitan Police Force oversaw efforts to use an internal inquiry into claims that he had used drugs, visited prostitutes and taken bribes to incriminate his fellow members of the NBPA, a body established to protect the rights of black and Asian officers.

    The book will suggest that some of the Met's senior officers had been angered by NBPA claims that they had failed to embrace the recommendations of the Macpherson Report into the botched investigation of the murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence.

    According to Ch Supt Dizaei, the investigation into his conduct was used to target Leroy Logan, the then NBPA chairman, and other members of the organisation. No one from the NBPA has ever been found guilty of wrongdoing. Mr Logan won 100,000 in damages from the Met for the manner in which he was investigated.

    A source, who has seen a transcript of the book, claimed: "The NBPA was questioning the Met's commitment to the Macpherson Report.


    "[High-ranking Met officers] were trying to take out the senior executive of the NBPA. Met officers were going through every expense form and searching every document trying to find something they could use against members of the organisation."

    The investigation into Ch Supt Dizaei ran for two years and cost an estimated 7 million. He twice stood trial at the Old Bailey but was acquitted on each occasion. He was awarded 80,000 in compensation.

    In his book, entitled Not One of Us, Ch Supt Dizaei is understood to claim that the inquiry was only called off after David Blunkett, the then home secretary, called "a high level summit" with senior Met officers.

    A Met spokesman said: "There were exceptional circumstances surrounding his case and the Metropolitan Police hopes that once Ch Supt Dizaei has aired his views we can draw a line under it."

    The controversial chief police superintendant of the West London Borough of Hounslow, Ali Dizaei, was born in Tehran in 1962 to a father who was a policeman. Ali's grandfather had been a commissioner of police and his uncles were also in the Iranian police force. "By the time I was four years old I wanted to be a policeman like they were," Dizaei recalls.

    After Dizaei moved to school in England in 1972, he fulfilled his dream of becoming a policeman and rose quickly through the ranks. But his future as a policeman heading for the top was thrown into turmoil when he became the target of a lengthy secret investigation, codenamed Operation Helios, carried out by his colleagues in the Metropolitan Police. Operation Helios led to Dizaei being put on trial in March 2003 at London's Central Criminal Court, the Old Bailey. But the jury found him not guilty of the charges against him.

    Dizaei tells his extraordinary story in his book "Not One of US: the Trial that Changed Policing in Britain Forever" which is co-written with journalist Tim Phillips. The book has just been published in London by Serpent's Tail.

    The book reads rather like an espionage novel. It was in January 2001 that Dizaei was informed at a that he was being suspended from his job and that he was under investigation by the police's Complaints Investigation Branch. Operation Helios had by then been running for 18 months, and it would continue for another two years.

    Among the many damaging allegations made against Dizaei at various times was that he was a spy for Iran and a threat to national security, that he carried out favours for corrupt businessmen, that he frequented prostitutes, that he used steroids and was a drug addict and drug trafficker, and that he falsified his car petrol mileage expense.

    During Operation Helios the police put Dizaei under surveillance, tapped his phone, read his e-mails, recorded his conversations, videoed him, examined his work diary and investigated the bank accounts of him and his family members. They made several failed attempts to "entrap" him, including staging an operation in 2000 in co-operation with the FBI, Canadian Mounted Police and other organisations in Los Angeles, where Dizaei had gone to give a speech.

    Despite the serious allegations made against Dizaei during Operation Helios, at his trial the charges related not to matters of national security but to an incident in which, he admits, he lied about the circumstances around the malicious scratching of the paintwork of his car in September 1999. He told the jury he had lied because of the bad treatment he had been receiving from colleagues at Kensington police station, and because he had not wanted to tell them he had been at a National Black Police Association meeting on the day of the scratching.

    Even after the jury found Dizaei not guilty of the two charges of perverting the course of justice, and of misconduct in public office, the police tried to pursue a fresh prosecution on charges relating to discrepancies in his petrol mileage claims, totalling 455 (Dizaei says he was actually owed 4,000 in expenses he had not claimed). But the Crown Prosecution Service decided there was no case for him to answer.

    Up to 44 officers were involved in Operation Helios. Dizaei calculates that the investigations and his trial cost the British taxpayer 7 million Sterling (the police say the figure is 2.2 million). After his acquittal at the Old Bailey the police tried to negotiate a settlement with him, on condition that he left the police. Dizaei's advisers estimated that he could get a settlement, based on lost years of service and salary, worth between 1.5 million and 2 million.

    But Dizaei wanted his job back. Under the deal that was eventually reached, he was allowed to get his job back and to be promoted to chief superintendant, and was awarded 60,000 in compensation.

    Dizaei portrays his case as being harassment not just of him, but of black and Asian police in general, and in particular of members of the National Black Police Association which represents ethnic minority officers.

    As a policeman Dizaei had experienced at first hand racism from the public and from some of his colleagues, and his outspoken stance against racism had annoyed some fellow officers. In November 1999 he gave a speech to 2,000 black police officers, in his capacity as vice chairman and legal adviser of the National Black Police Association, in which he accused the police of "ethnic cleansing" and of ensuring that most black and Asian officers had no chance of rising to the highest ranks. This speech, which was widely reported in the media, intensified the resentment against him in some quarters.

    Dizaei's book has attracted much attention, and has been serialised in the Times newspaper. It is also being been read in daily instalments on BBC radio 4 as the Book of the Week. Not surprisingly, Scotland Yard has expressed "regret "that Dizaei published the book. Two members of the Metropolitan Police Authority demanded to know why Scotland Yard had not blocked its publication.

    The Labour MP and former foreign office minister Keith Vaz told the House of Commons that Dizaei's allegations against the police were "very serious". Vaz warned: "This creates serious problems for the image of the Metropolitan Police." The mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, said that Dizaei's career might have been affected by unfounded allegations from the British intelligence service MI5.

    The Guardian newspaper reported that MI5 had told Scotland Yard that it suspected Dizaei of being an Iranian spy (he has dual British and Iranian nationality). This claim from MI5 was one of the main reasons for the launching of Operation Helios. MI5 suspicions were aroused because Dizaei used to visit the Iranian embassy, and associated with people who worked there and with other Iranian nationals. MI5 also based its suspicion on intercepts of telecommunications traffic by the Government Communications Headquarters.

    But the lengthy police investigation failed to find evidence that Dizaei was a spy. Dizaei described MI5's suspicion as "wholly baseless and false and it is outrageous that it could still be used to blight my career. It is nothing more than a smear." He said that every time he went to Iran he sent a fax and e-mail to the Iran desk at the Foreign Office, and when he arrived he informed the British Embassy in Tehran. "I have always told the Special Branch when I'm visiting the Iranian embassy in London to get a visa for my son. Are these the actions of an Iranian spy?"

    The controversy surrounding Dizaei continues. He is one of 10 senior officers who had been competing for three positions as commander in the Metropolitan police, but on March 7 it was announced that he had failed to be promoted to this level. Keith Jarrett, the president of the National Black Police Association, said he was urgently seeking a meeting with the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Sir Ian Blair, to try to find out whether there is a continuing personal vendetta against Dizaei which is blocking his promotion. Jarrett pointed out that Dizaei leads one of best performing boroughs in London and was graded as "exceptional" in his personal performance assessment.

    In his book Dizaei admits that he did not always behave like an angel. After he and his second wife Natalie realised after some years of marriage that they no longer loved each other they decided not to get divorced but to continue living in the same house with their children. They led independent lives and both had other lovers. The discovery by police during Operation Helios that Dizaei, though married, had a number of girlfriends was used against him.

    Dizaei regrets and feels shame over the three highly abusive messages he left on the answer phone of a girl in her twenties, Mandy, after his brief relationship with her ended. He says: "It was "vile, wrong inexcusable language to use to someone, whatever our differences had been." Mandy's Iranian mother Nahid Darougeh wrote in January 2000 to the Metropolitan Police making serious accusations against Dizaei "which was the smoking gun that some of my colleagues had wished for."
    Mandy kept the phone messages, and they were played to the court during his trial.

    Dizaei is one of the most prominent, and certainly the most outspoken, Muslim policemen in Britain at a time when police relations with the Muslim community are in a delicate conditions, particularly given the arrests of Muslims since 9/11, some of whom have been charged and tried for terror offences.

    Last summer Dizaei came to the defence of a policeman, Alexander Omar Basha, whose superiors had agreed to his request not to guard the Israeli Embassy during the war on Lebanon. Basha has a Syrian father and Lebanese wife, and was worried that Islamic militants might take action against him or family members if it was known he was guarding the Embassy. There was an outcry in the media over the issue, but Dizaei pointed out that it was not unusual for decisions to be made excusing police officers from carrying out certain duties. "I think the subtext here is the current hypersensitivity about the Muslim police officers and any perception that they are getting preferential treatment, which is absolutely not the case," he said.

    Dizaei has also spoken out against moves by the British authorities to introduce "profiling" of passengers at airports in an effort to identity those who might be considered as a terror risk. Inevitably suspicion would fall mainly on young Muslim male travellers, and Dizaei said the plan would introduce a new offence of "travelling while Asian". It looks certain that a lot more will be heard from Dizaei in the future.

    عذرخواهی پلیس لندن از تحقیق درباره علی دیزایی


    سر ایان گفت که این تحقیقات باعث شکاف در نیروهای پلیس شده است
    سر ایان بلر، رییس پلیس لندن بزرگ، به خاطر تحقیق در مورد علی دیزایی، یکی از ارشدترین افسران آسیایی تبار این نیروها، که ادعا شده بود مرتکب فساد مالی شده، عذرخواهی کرده است.
    اين تحقيقات، که با 4 ميليون پوند هزينه و صدها ساعت کار پليسی انجام شد، به نتيجه ای دست نيافت.

    سر ایان بلر روز سه شنبه (5 ژوئن) گفت انجام این تحقیقات "آسیب شدیدی" به پلیس لندن وارد کرده و باعث شکاف میان این نیرو و افسران پلیس از اقلیت های قومی شده است.

    سرتیپ علی دیزایی، 44 ساله و ایرانی تبار، در سال 2001 متهم شد برای پلیس هزینه سازی کرده و علیه همکاران خود اتهامات کذب مطرح کرده است. آقای دیزایی گفته بود اتومبیل شخصی اش توسط افسران پلیس آسیب دیده است.

    کارآگاهان پلیس اسکاتلند یارد تحت عنوان عملیات "هلیوس" به مدت چند سال او را زیر نظر داشته اند.

    پرونده ای که عمليات هليوس عليه علی ديزايی تنظيم کرد به اتهامی رسمی و انفصال او از خدمت منجر شد.


    علی دیزایی در سال 2003 از اتهامات وارده تبرئه شد

    دادگاه مرکزی لندن سرانجام در سال 2003 آقای دیزایی را از همه اتهامات مبرا دانست.

    "اشتباهات تکرار نشود"

    رییس پلیس بریتانیا روز سه شنبه (5 ژوئن) با انتشار بیانیه ای گفت: "اکنون تمام طرفین به این نتیجه رسیده اند که باید این ماجرا را فراموش کنیم اما در ضمن مطمئن باشیم که درس لازم را از آن گرفته ایم و اشتباهات در آینده تکرار نخواهد شد."

    بیانیه سر ایان بلر در ادامه آورده که "پلیس لندن با اذعان به اشتباهات و عذرخواهی برای آنها، امیدوار است توانسته باشد بار دیگر اعتماد انجمن پلیس لندن وابسته به اقليتهای قومی این کشور را تا حدی جلب کرده باشد."

    در عملياتی مخفی "هليوس"، تمام تماس ها و رفت و آمدهای علی دیزایی زير نظر گرفته شد و عاقبت اتهامات متعددی از پارتی بازی اداری گرفته تا خرج تراشی برای پليس لندن و صرف غذای مجانی در رستورانهای ايرانی و جاسوسی برای جمهوری اسلامی، علیه او مطرح شد.

    آقای دیزایی که فارغ التحصیل رشته حقوق است، در زمان آغاز تحقیقات در سال 1998، مشاور حقوقی "انجمن ملی پليس لندن وابسته به اقليتهای قومی" بود. او به خاطر اتهاماتی که به وی وارد شد مدت چهار سال از خدمت پلیس محروم شد.

    پس از تبرئه شدن این پلیس ایرانی تبار، پليس اسکاتلند يارد به حکم دادگاه مجبور شد به وی خسارت پرداخت کند. اسکاتلند یارد همچنین وادار شد آقای دیزایی را در درجه قبلی اش ابقا کند.

    وی پس از مدت کوتاهی رئيس پليس آنزلو، منطقه ای بزرگ در غرب لندن شد.

    سوءقصد به جان علي ديزايي فرمانده ايراني الاصل اسكاتلنديارد در لندن

    علي ديزايي، فرمانده ايراني تبار پليس منطقه غرب لندن مقابل يك رستوران ايراني مورد حمله قرار گرفت.


    روزنامه ديلي ميل چاپ لندن نوشت: "در يك مشاجره عجيب و غريب مقابل يك رستوران ايراني در لندن ديزايي، فرمانده پليس اسكاتلنديارد، هدف حمله يك جوان 23 ساله عرب قرار گرفت."

    به نوشته ديلي ميل اين مشاجره غيرعادي اواخر عصر جمعه در رستوران ايراني «ياس» واقع در منطقه كنسينگون در غرب لندن رخ داد.

    براساس اين گزارش ديزايي كه اخيرا به درجه فرماندهي ارتقا يافته است با همسر خود در رستوران مشغول صرف غذا بود و ظاهرا در زمان ترك رستوران با «وعد البغدادي»، يك طراح وب سايت، روبرو شده است.

    مالك رستوران گفت: "اين جوان عرب قبلا در ملاقاتي به افسر ايراني پيشنهاد داده بود كه براي وي كار طراحي انجام دهد اما ديزايي بعدا از پاسخ به تماس هاي وي خودداري كرده و از اين رو وي خشمگين شده و مقابل رستوران به افسر ايراني حمله كرد."

    در همين حال ديزايي، 45 ساله، گفت: "وي به البغدادي هشدار داد آرامش خود را حفظ كند اما او با سر نوك تيز يك قليان به طرفش حمله كرد."

    وي افزود: "البغدادي مقابل مردم داد و فرياد و تهديد مي كرد، به زبان فارسي دشنام مي داد و مي گفت: «شما فكر مي كنيد كي هستيد؟»"

    به گفته ديزايي اين جوان 23 ساله با يك وسيله نوك تيز شبيه يك چاقو به وي حمله ور شد و آن را در شكم و بازويش فرو برد.

    اين افسر ايراني ادامه داد: "زماني كه وي را بازداشت كردم و به او دستبند زدم هنوز مقاومت مي كرد اما بعد از بازداشت به خاطر رفتارش عذرخواهي كرد."

    ديزايي يكي از برجسته ترين افسران مسلمان انگليس و يكي از 9 فرمانده جديد است كه ماه گذشته توسط سازمان پليس لندن به درجه فرماندهي ارتقا يافت. وي تنها افسر ارشد داراي دكتراي حقوق در پليس انگليس است.

    ديزايي پيش از اين در چند مرحله به دليل پرونده سازي بي اساس با فرماندهي پليس انگليس اسكاتلنديارد درگيري داشت.

    اسكاتلنديارد با وجود صرف چند ميليون پوند هزينه تعقيب و مراقبت از وي نهايتاً نتوانست اتهامات وارده از قبيل فساد مالي، اخلاقي، اداري و جاسوسي را ثابت كند و مجبور به عذرخواهي از ديزايي و پرداخت خسارت به وي شد.

    ديزايي كه خاطرات و تجربه خود از تبعيض نژادي و بي عدالتي نهادينه در پليس انگليس را در كتابي در قالب يك خودزندگينامه نگاشته و منتشر كرده است با وجود داشتن همه شرايط لازم ، پنج بار براي رسيدن به مقام فرماندهي ناكام ماند و نهايتا با فشارهاي رسانه اي و تهديد به شكايت موفق به گرفتن حق قانوني خود شد.

    دكتر ديزايي متولد سال 1962 در تهران است. پدر وي نيز يك فرمانده پليس در ايران بوده است. ديزايي در سال 1986 به پليس منطقه «تيمزولي» پيوست و پس از اخذ درجه دكتراي حقوق در سال 1999 به اسكاتلنديارد ملحق شد.
