Last week the Ghanaian news space got quite busy with the arrival of Mr Kweku Adoboli, who has been in the news for all the reasons I am sure he did not want.
In 2016, following his release from prison after serving half of his seven-year jail sentence for causing a $2.3bn unauthorised trading loss, the UK immigration authorities sought to deport him back to Ghana. He mounted a rather spirited challenge against the deportation but finally, he exhausted all his options and was deported.
For about 10 years of my life during my stay in the UK, I worked in various immigration law firms and deportation and removal cases featured regularly in my caseload. I argued regularly before immigration judges why a client should not be removed or deported. Of course, I won some and lost others. I, therefore, took particular interest in this case and I was not surprised when Mr Adoboli was finally deported.
