Dizaei out on bail to face new trial
Former Scotland Yard commander Ali Dizaei won his appeal against his conviction for corruption yesterday and was released on bail before facing a new trial.
Lord Justice Hughes and two other Appeal Court judges allowed the challenge brought by Dizaei, 48, who is serving a four-year jail sentence, after being convicted in February last year by Southwark Crown Court.
The ruling follows a hearing in March, when claims were made about the credibility of Waad al-Baghdadi, the key witness in the case against Dizaei, who was found to have tried to frame him when they fell out over money.
