French former trader at Societe Generale bank, Jerome Kerviel's trial

epa02191856 French former trader at Societe Generale bank, Jerome Kerviel, arrives surrounded by journalists at the tribunal in Paris, France, 08 June 2010. Kerviel appears in court to face a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of 375,000 euros if convicted on charges of breach of trust, falsifying and using fake documents and tampering with computer information. Kerviel is accused of gambling away nearly five billion euros (six billion dollars) in risky covert deals when he was a star trader at Societe Generale, one of France's three biggest banks. Branded a crook by his ex-employer and a mere scapegoat by others, Kerviel insists his bosses knew what he was doing and turned a blind eye to possible breaches of rules as long as he made profits. His trial will last untill 25 June 2010. EPA/LUCAS DOLEGA
