UBS 'rogue trader' Kweku Adoboli faces two more counts


A City trader with Swiss bank UBS accused of a £1.4bn fraud was charged with two further counts as he took the witness stand for the first time.

Kweku Adoboli, 32, of Whitechapel, east London, broke down in tears four times at Southwark Crown Court.

He told the court his actions were not fraudulent, but for the benefit of UBS which he considered his "family".
