The officers, who have not been named, are alleged to have conspired to arrest a 20-year-old man who had broken through the police cordon during the protests at Parliament Square in December.
The man was chased and caught and, it is alleged, was then struck in the face with a police riot shield which chipped his tooth.
The officers are then alleged to have discussed how to arrest the man and are believed to have concocted a story in which they claimed the man had threatened to cause criminal damage to a nearby building.
However one of the officers was wearing sound recording equipment which recorded the chase and arrest of the man and the subsequent conversation between the officers.'
