‘My race-hate hell’

A Muslim officer facing the sack from the Metropolitan police claimed today he was racially abused by colleagues. PC Kay Hasan, 29, was served a notice of dismissal following a series of formal complaints from members of the public and colleagues. He is fighting the dismissal, claiming he was subjected to racist insults and discrimination. In the worst incident his locker at Notting Hill police station was daubed with graffiti that read: “Clean me. I used to belong to a dirty Muzzie”. Mr Hasan says “Muzzie” is a derogatory term for Muslims.
