I Saw Danger Coming : UBS Trader Kweku Adoboli Open Up On His Crime | WATCH

KWEKU ADOBOLI, the former UBS trader convicted of fraud who was recently deported to Ghana has opened up on his crimes.

Speaking to Joy News Prime, Kweku Adoboli revealed more than enough as he revealed he saw the danger coming as he alerted his bosses who failed to listen to him.

According to sources, he was convicted for a seven-year term in jail whereby he served a four years sentence for a £1.4bn as he was released in 2015.

Kweku Adoboli also explained to us why he wasn’t able to naturalize to be a citizen of The United Kingdom and more.

Kweku Adoboli was born in Ghana but left when he was four and has lived in the UK since he was 12.

He is leaving behind his partner Alice, with whom he had been living in Livingston, West Lothian.

Immigration minister Caroline Nokes had said that all foreign nationals sentenced to more than four years’ imprisonment are subject to automatic deportation, unless there are compelling reasons for them to remain.

Adoboli was expected to be put on a charter flight in September, but a judge awarded a last-minute reprieve while his case was reviewed.

Since then, more than 74,000 people have signed a petition against Adoboli’s deportation, with more than 130 members of the UK and Scottish parliaments signing a letter asking Home Secretary Sajid Javid to intervene.

Ms Bardell said Adoboli’s team would now explore further legal means of securing his return, but said doing so could prove difficult from overseas.

Adoboli was found guilty of booking fictitious trades to cover up big losses during the financial crisis between 2008 and 2011.

He pleaded not guilty, saying his senior managers knew what he was doing and encouraged him to take risks.
