Rogue trader Jerome Kerviel, who has spent two months walking from Rome to protest "the tyranny of the markets", returned to France Sunday at midnight where he is due to start a three-year prison term. 

Former French trader Jerome Kerviel (C) is arrested by French plainclothes police shortly after crossing the border from Italy in Menton, southeastern France, late on May 18, 2014
