In January 2000, Dizaei left a series of threatening messages on the voicemail of his ex-girlfriend Mandy Darougeh. She had dumped him after finding out he was married.
I will take such revenge from you, that like a dog, you will be sorry that you will never treat me like this again.
Mandy, I am going to declare war on you and I have declared it as of now. See what I will do to you. From now on you are dead. I will start with your mum first. I am so emotionally disturbed now that anything is possible from me.
I give you an hour and see what I will do to you. If you think I am worried about my career, to get back at you, you must be joking.
‘Just remember what I did to ******’s (name unknown) husband. You are not safe. I am going to come and catch you, on my mother’s life. If you are at home, get out because if I see you, I am going to lose it right now.
You want war, bitch, you’re going to get some war. You will see now what I can do so you will cry for years. First I will start with your family, then I come to you and your reputation. I will spread all over London that you are a prostitute
