UBS trader Adoboli breaks down in emotional interview about his deportation

Despite a harrowing deportation experience Ghanaian born UBS trader Kweku Adoboli says he will not relent until UK laws on deportation are changed.

“This fight is not over. We will keep fighting because it is the right thing to do” he told Joy News editor Israel Laryea in an emotional interview held few days after he was deported to Ghana by UK authorities.

According to him he was bundled out of London by four well-built men and one woman into the booth of the Kenya Airways, watched over by the five officers who kept on intimidating him and threatening throughout the flight.

Five people taking one man like a piece of cargo, he said and broke down in tears in the youtube video.

Adoboli dismissed claims he refused to come to Ghana because he preferred the prison conditions in London than the poor conditions in Ghana.

According to him, he was fighting the possibility of being deported out of the country, he had lived for over 20years.

Despite losing the battle of deportation, Adoboli said he would fight to have the UK laws on deportation changed so that non-nationals who have lived in the UK all their lives or those who were born there will not be deported.

Adoboli, 38, was found guilty for his role in the illegal trading of some $2billion at the Swiss investment bank.

He was sentenced to a seven-year jail term in September 2011 but was released in 2015 after serving four years.

 Adoboli was released in June 2015 and has since been fighting the UK authorities in court over an attempt to deport.

He was however deported early this week and has since been with the family who welcomed him with powder and a local dish party. Adoboli appears to have settled already with his family. The interview can be downloaded with an online video converter.
