Deporting me to Ghana worse than being jailed in UK – Adoboli

Kweku Adoboli, the former UBS banker jailed in the United Kingdom (UK) for fraud, has said deporting him to Ghana is a worse punishment than being jailed in the UK.

“I did four years in prison for a non-violent act,” he said in an interview with the Guardian from the detention centre.
“I’ve served my time, but I’m being given an extra punishment – a banishment – and just because I didn’t get around to becoming a citizen. This punishment is so much worse than being in prison.”

The 38-year-old was found guilty in 2012 of fraud that lost his Swiss bank $2.3 billion (£1.8bn).He was released from prison on probation in 2015 after serving half of a seven-year sentence.
