PC Jamil Choudry was relieved of his duties following a special case misconduct hearing held on Thursday (July 27).
The officer faced charges of breaching the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of "honesty and integrity" and "discreditable conduct" after he was found guilty of three charges of fraud at Southwark Crown Court on March 23.
PC Choudry, who was sentenced to three years imprisonment on April 20 after his conviction for three counts of fraud by false representation, had convinced his victims to invest large sums of money into non-existent schemes by promising them a favourable return on their investment.
Met Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, who chaired the proceedings, said: “The officer is in prison for fraud and the matter was proven without contest.
“PC Choudry has no exceptional mitigation and, given he is in prison for three years for dishonesty, dismissal is the only course of action available to uphold the reputation and integrity of the police service.”
