THE former head of counter-fraud at Oxfam in Oxford will appear at the Old Bailey next month charged with stealing from the charity.

Edward McKenzie-Green, of The Leys, Chipping Norton, is accused of taking £62,857.58 and a laptop in 2011.

The 34-year-old denies fraud by abuse of position and theft by employee. He will appear at the Central Criminal Court, London, on January 20 and his trial is due to start on March 10.

His father Edward Green, 61, from Cumbernauld, Glasgow, who has denied laundering £35,571.75, is also due to appear on the same dates.
