Corrupt police chief Ali Dizaei has lost his job at Scotland Yard for a second time.
The 49-year-old, who has twice been jailed for corruption, was dismissed from his post as commander after an internal disciplinary tribunal.
The dismissal came after he was found guilty of misconduct and perverting the course of justice at a retrial in February.
He was sentenced to three years in prison but that was cut by the time he'd already spent behind bars after a conviction in 2010 was quashed by the Court of Appeal.
He won his job back at the Metropolitan Police but was suspended on a full salary pending disciplinary action.
Today, a spokesman for Dizaei said: "His case against the Metropolitan Police Service and his conviction is not over."
Dizaei is appealing the conviction and plans to go to take the Met to an employment tribunal next year.

Horace Campbell,28, and Liam Douglas-O'Callaghan, 18, were found guilty of murdering DevonScarlett, 32, in Brixton in April last year.
The Old Bailey heard Campbell and Mr Scarlett were involved in a row at the restaurant.
They were escorted outside by security guards, but the argument carried on and they agreed to meet in a nearby street for a shoot-out.
Campbell called Douglas-O'Callaghan to bring his gun.
He then followed Mr Scarlett down a street and fired three shots, two of them hitting the victim.
Mr Scarlett died a few hours later in hospital.
Campbell and O'Callaghan both denied murder.
– Bobbie Cheema, Prosecutor
"Horace Campbell was determined to avenge the perceived lack of respect that DevonScarlett showed him.
"Devon Scarlett acted with foolish bravado, behaving like a tough guy, but whatever he said and did, he was not armed."
A man was stabbed to death in a "frenzied and wordless" attack after asking a young father if everything was alright with his crying child, the Old Bailey has heard.
Jurors were told 63-year-old Alan Smith was stabbed five times in front of his partner and daughter as "revenge" for the enquiry.
He was at the BB Cafe in Leyton, east London in March last year when he asked Matthew Quesada about the crying child.
Prosecutors said Quesada swore at Mr Smith, who took his family to the nearby Roma café.
The court was told Quesada went home, picked up a knife from his house, and then returned to carry out the attack on Mr Smith.
Quesada was found in a car with his mother the next day. He had cut his hair, and had his passport with him and details of flights to Brazil.
