Ghanaian UK Based Rogue Trader-Kweku Adoboli Loses Deportation Appeal—Ghana is Not That Bad So Just Come HOME
The infamous UBS rogue trader convicted of fraud, has lost his appeal against being deported from the UK.
In 2012, Kweku Adoboli’s unauthorised trading lead to the Swiss bank losing £1.4bn ($2.2bn)—following which he was sentenced to prison for seven years on two counts of fraud.
Since his release in 2015, UK’s Border Agency has been trying to deport him to Ghana because per their rules, foreign nationals sentenced to more than four years are automatically considered for deportation.
Kwaku who is a Ghanaian but has lived in Uk since 12 has been fighting his deportation order in court and today, 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 Mr Adoboli “had not established that there would be very significant obstacles in his reintegration into life in Ghana”.
So he should be deported…
But Kweku Adoboli, whose father is a UN diplomat says he is not giving up—he will continue to fight his deportation.
And the Yorkshire boarding school educated chap is using crowdfunding to help raise £75,000 for legal costs—so far, £10,000 has been pledged in just two days.
