Jessica Mang, one of the ex- girlfriends of former Mizuho International investment banker Thomas Ammann, said she bought shares at his request because she wanted to show that she trusted him.
Mang is on trial for insider trading along with Christina Weckwerth, another woman with whom Ammann simultaneously had a relationship.
'He basically said that I show him that I trust him - I invest the money, he still hadn’t specified how - once that’s done, we’ll go on holiday in the Seychelles', Mang said. 'I thought that was a massive leap in commitment'.
She said Ammann told her if she didn’t do it, 'he didn’t want to be with me anymore'.
