A former UBS banker convicted for causing the biggest trading loss in British banking history, Kweku Adoboli will today make a final attempt to prevent his imminent deportation a day later by filing for judicial review.
Mr. Adoboli’s solicitor Jacqueline McKenzie told reporters that her client is due to be deported by chartered flight tomorrow to his native country Ghana.
This follows the rejection of his latest appeal by the British government to stay in the country despite his fraud conviction.
Mr. Adoboli, 38, had been held at the Dungaval detention centre in Scotland since September 3, but has been moved to a Heathrow detention centre as the Home Office push ahead with deportation plans.
The lawyer argued that her client who has lived in London since he was 12 is reformed and now uses his business acumen to help young black men to set up businesses through an organisation called ”Bigger.” she said her client had lived most of his life in the United Kingdom and does not know much about Ghana.
The lawyer said Kweku Adoboli doesn’t even speak his native languages in the way that he would be required to.
