Ali Dizaei was convicted of misconduct and perverting the course of justice
Disgraced senior officer Ali Dizaei has been dismissed from his job with immediate effect by the Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA).
A tribunal had been deliberating on the action to be taken against the jailed police commander.
He was jailed in February for four years for misconduct and perverting the course of justice.
The former senior police officer was found guilty of attacking and falsely arresting a web designer in 2008.
The 47-year-old commander had remained a police officer without powers at Scotland Yard since starting his jail term, but the MPA has now dismissed him.
Speaking after the hearing, James Cleverly, vice chairman of the Professional Standards Cases Sub-Committee, said: "The tribunal recommended that the only appropriate sanction was dismissal from the service.
"The sub-committee has accepted the tribunal's recommendation and has today dismissed Commander Dizaei from the Metropolitan Police Service with immediate effect.
"As far as the authority is concerned, this is the end of the matter."
