Employment Tribunal (London Central)
Rebecca Tuck was instructed to represent former Assistant Commissioner of the Met, Mr Andrew Hayman, in litigation being pursued by former Commander of the Metropolitan Police, Ali Dizaei.
Ali Dizaei was convicted of perverting the course of justice, dismissed, had his conviction overturned by the Court of Appeal with a recommendation for a retrial, was reinstated, convicted for a second time, and dismissed again. He has presented five ET1s against some 18 respondents, including former commissioners and senior staff – though he has now discontinued against some of those.
Mr Hayman had been involved in interviewing Mr Dizaei for a post in 2006. He was named as a respondent by Ali Dizaei in his fourth set of proceedings, brought in 2011.
Rebecca successfully argued that the claim against Mr Hayman should be struck out on the basis that it was an abuse of process, as the complaint should have been included in earlier proceedings if it was to be pursued.
Claims against 10 of the respondents will proceed to a final hearing.
