Kweku Adoboli to be deported from UK


Kweku Adoboli ran up the largest unauthorised trading loss in UK history

Kweku Adoboli, the former UBS trader who was sentenced to seven years in prison after running up the largest unauthorised trading loss in UK history, is on the verge of being deported to Ghana.

The 38-year-old, who caused a $2.3bn trading loss by vastly exceeding his risk limits, has lived in the UK since he was 12 but is a national of Ghana, where he was born and where he lived until he was four years old.

On Monday, he is due to report to the Home Office for a check-in and could be detained then. He has exhausted almost all his legal options since his release from prison into probation three years ago, after serving half his sentence.

“Being banished from your friends, family, community, country and the West is by far the worst punishment that can be enforced upon someone,” Mr Adoboli said.

“I fear it is something that nobody can ever truly recover from.” Earlier this week, a court denied him permission for a judicial review of the deportation proceedings, and granted a request by the Home Office to allow it to deport him even if he renews his application for a review.
