A police officer who was ordered to sign the sexual offenders register after admitting voyeurism offences has been dismissed from the Metropolitan Police.

Irshad Kamal, 46, of Bramfield Road, Wandsworth, was a serving officer in Merton when he was charged with three counts of voyeurism after secretly filming hundreds of encounters with prostitutes.

At his sentencing in February, he was banned from contacting sex workers, escorts or anyone who takes payment for sexual services, and told to sign the sex offenders register for five years. 

He was sentenced to a two-year community order with supervision, and a requirement to attend a programme for sexual offenders, and order to complete 100 days of unpaid work.

He was ordered to pay £810 in costs.

On Thursday, June 23, Kamal was subject to a police misconduct hearing and was dismissed from the Met.

The chairman of the misconduct hearing, assistant commissioner Helen King, said: "The victim of each of these offences was a sex worker. As police officers we are entrusted with powers to enforce the law and with protecting the most vulnerable people. 

"The public therefore needs to have confidence that individual officers will uphold the highest standards of behaviour. 

"Although the officer was off-duty at the time of these offences, his actions were completely incompatible with being a member of the Metropolitan Police Service.

"He has brought discredit on the police service and has been dismissed without notice."

At his sentencing in Southwark Crown Court, Judge Loraine-Smith said: "I expect the fact it was being recorded was part of your enjoyment of the process, and you would watch it later.

"There’s no suggestion these films were seen by anyone other than you."

After the sentencing, one of the women he filmed spoke about what had happened.

The sex worker, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said: "It gives me comfort knowing the humiliation I faced for three days in the witness stand has ultimately resulted in this man being on the sex offenders register, and losing his job caring for the vulnerable.

"I went through it all because I wanted my voice to be heard.

"He’s an absolute disgrace to humanity and there’s no way in hell he should ever have any contact with sex workers or vulnerable people ever again."
