Top Ghanaian businessman to face deportation from UK

A Ghanaian former UBS trader based in the UK, Kweku Adoboli, is likely to face deportation after losing an appeal case against him over charges of fraud.

His unauthorised trading lost the Swiss bank £1.4bn ($2.2bn) and in 2012 he was sentenced to seven years jail on two counts of fraud.

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".
