LONDON Nov 14 The jury in the London trial of
former UBS trader Kweku Adoboli, who is blamed for a
loss of $2.3 billion, retired on Wednesday to consider its
Adoboli, 32, denies two charges of fraud by abuse of
position and four charges of false accounting, covering the
period from October 2008 to his arrest on Sept. 15, 2011. His
trial started on Sept. 10 this year.
There was no way of knowing how long the jury would take to
reach verdicts on all six counts.
There are 11 jurors in the case, meaning that if they cannot
reach a unanimous verdict on one or more counts, a 10-1 majority
decision would be acceptable.
