A Metropolitan Police officer cleared of dishonesty after a four-year probe is to be given a temporary promotion.
Mr Dizaei is due to take up the post next month
Superintendent Ali Dizaei, 41, one of the highest ranking ethnic minority officers, had criminal proceedings dropped against him in September 2003.
Scotland Yard said the officer, from Henley, Oxfordshire would become Chief Superintendent subject to assessment.
Mr Dizaei was selected for a promotion course when he returned to work after a two-year suspension.
An Old Bailey jury had cleared the Iranian-born officer of perverting the course of justice and misconduct concerning a report of vandalism to his car
in April 2003.
When proceedings were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service later in the year the Met was accused of racism.
Mr Dizaei dropped plans to take the force to an employment tribunal at the end of last year and received an £80,000 settlement.
The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) ruled in March however, that he should face a misconduct hearing on nine alleged breaches of the police code of conduct.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission, which recently replaced the PCA, is to review the ruling.
Mr Dizaei is due to take the temporary promotion in May.
