Deborah Glass, IPCC Deputy Chair said: "Ali Dizaei's dismissal from the Metropolitan Police Service was the right and inevitable outcome following his conviction, a second time, for serious criminal offences.
"There is no place in the police for corrupt officers and they have no business wielding the powers of a police officer in our communities.
"Many will wonder how Mr Dizaei was able to rise to the very senior rank of commander. The Metropolitan Police Service needs to ensure that never again is its reputation so badly damaged by the acts of one of its most senior officers."
A spokesman for Dizaei said he would continue to fight to clear his name and was scheduled to bring tribunal proceedings for unfair dismissal against the MPS next February.
His spokesman added: "He has been down this road before where he was prematurely dismissed from the force in 2010 when there was a live appeal against his conviction".
He said: "He notes with interest how the Met remained silent when he won his appeal and was reinstated last year and today the MPS (Metropolitan Police Service) department of public affairs is busy shouting his dismissal from rooftops to the media.
"There is (an) ongoing appeal against his conviction and Dr Dizaei has issued employment tribunal proceedings against the MPS with regard to his treatment scheduled to be heard in February 2013."
