THE former head of counter-fraud at Oxfam in Oxford will stand trial accused of stealing from the charity.

Edward McKenzie-Green, of The Leys, Chipping Norton, appeared at the Old Bailey yesterday ahead of the start of the trial on March 10.

The 34-year-old is accused of taking £62,857.58 and a laptop in 2011. He denies fraud by abuse of position and theft by employee.

His father Edward Green, 62, from Cumbernauld, Glasgow, who has denied laundering £35,571.75, is due to stand trial on the same date.
