This one is just too good. The only way that it would feel any more perfect was if Deutsche Bank was somehow involved...

A former UBS Group AG compliance officer was charged by U.K. regulators with passing tips on five occasions to a London man who traded on the information, according to court records.
Fabiana Abdel-Malek, 34, and Walid Choucair, 38, were each charged with five counts of insider dealing between June 2013 and June 2014, a court clerk said by phone Wednesday, reading charges filed by the Financial Conduct Authority. Abdel-Malek, who has a law degree, had worked as a compliance officer at UBS since 2007, according to her LinkedIn profile, where her surname is listed as Malek.

We don't know if Malek was working compliance in London in 2011 but if she was, welcome to the Dealbreaker Hall of Fame, ma'am.
