Ex-UBS trader loses appeal against UK deportation

Kweku Adoboli

Kweku Adoboli, former UBS trader convicted of fraud, has lost his appeal against being deported from the UK.

BBC News reports that his unauthorised trading lost the bank $2.2bn and in 2012 he was sentenced to seven years jail on two counts of fraud.

Adoboli was released in 2015, but foreign nationals sentenced to more than four years are automatically considered for deportation.

He is Ghanaian but has lived in the UK since the age of 12.

The decision by the Upper Tribunal of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber pointed out that "while he was socially and culturally integrated into the United Kingdom, his family was in Ghana" and that Adoboli "had not established that there would be very significant obstacles in his reintegration into life in Ghana".
