Gurpal Virdi - MPA to consider appeal
41/00 8 December 2000
Today the Metropolitan Police Service was ordered to pay Gurpal Virdi £151,688 in compensation following an Employment Tribunal earlier this year in which Mr Virdi alleged racial discrimination.

"The re-instatement of Mr Virdi was undoubtedly a step in the process of moving forward and shows that we can continue to build on the positive changes taking place in the Met.
"The MPA Inquiry will also be concerned with looking forward, ensuring such investigations in the future are conducted fairly and have the confidence of everyone concerned."
Gurpal Virdi was dismissed by the MPS earlier this year after a police disciplinary tribunal unanimously found him guilty of having distributed racist literature to other ethnic colleagues in the Met.
Subsequently Mr Virdi went to Employment Tribunal alleging racial discrimination, including the way in which the investigation was conducted. On 23 August 2000 the Tribunal found that the Met had discriminated against him. On 30 November Mr Virdi appealed successfully against the decision of the disciplinary tribunal and was re-instated in the Met.
Notes to editors
The sum of £151,688 comprises Tribunal award of £149,688 plus agreed overtime payment of £2000 (period April 1998 - December 2000) had Mr Virdi not been suspended from duty.

Gurpal Virdi, a detective sergeant with the Metropolitan Police, is suing Associated Newspapers over a story headed "Sikh police officer who won hate mail payout sues again".

He claims the story which appeared on April 22 last year was defamatory, and he is also seeking an injunction banning the paper from repeating the allegations at the centre of his claim.
The words meant that an independent inquiry had concluded that he was guilty, or probably guilty of conducting a racist hate mail campaign against his police colleagues, and that there were strong grounds to suspect he was indeed the culprit, he claims.
The story also meant that his conduct in bringing discrimination proceedings against his employers on the basis that he was not guilty was dishonest, grasping and disgraceful, according to a writ issued in London's High Court.
Virdi says the article gravely damaged his personal and professional reputation, and caused him humiliation, embarrassment and distress.
He is also seeking aggravated damages, and says the paper failed to consult him before publishing the story.
