Kampala - A Ugandan court has ordered the deportation of an American who has been on trial in Kampala for counterfeiting currency notes worth $180 400.

Magistrate Flavia Nabakooza on Thursday ordered Ryan Andrew Gustafson to be deported home where he is facing similar charges.

US authorities in December 2014 charged Gustafson with leading a multimillion-dollar international counterfeit money operation based in Uganda. The US Attorney's Office for the Western District of Pennsylvania said when he lived in the US, Gustafson mainly lived in Texas and Colorado.
