Britain's most senior Asian police officer set to win £300,000 deal to end racism claim
by Stephen Wright
Britain's highest-ranking Asian police officer is set to receive around £300,000 in compensation after threatening to air dynamite claims of racial discrimination at an employment tribunal.
Assistant Commissioner Tarique Ghaffur, 53, is close to agreeing an out-of-court settlement after originally claiming £1.2million from Scotland Yard.
Negotiations between his legal representatives and Metropolitan Police Authority officials are understood to be at an 'advanced stage' and an announcement could be made within days.
Mediation talks have been taking place to reach an agreement before December 1, when Sir Ian Blair steps down as Metropolitan Police Commissioner.
