Feb. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Kweku Adoboli, the former UBS AG trader who is accused of causing the largest loss from unauthorized trading in British history, was denied a request for bail, prosecutor David Williams said after a court hearing today.
Adoboli, 31, has been in custody since Sept. 15 when UBS asked London police to arrest him for causing a $2.3 billion loss. He has pleaded not guilty to fraud and false accounting charges on Jan. 30.
