Oxfam's former anti-fraud officer has pleaded guilty to defrauding the charity out of nearly £65,000 via false accounting methods.
The court heard how Edward McKenzie-Green made payments to the value of £64,612.58 from Oxfam to ficticious companies between February and December 2011.
The scam involved McKenzie-Green submitting false invoices to the companies he'd set up, paying the money into either his friend's or father's accounts and then transferring the cash to his personal account. The charge against his father of helping him to launder a portion of the money, was dropped.
McKenzie-Green will be sentenced on 16th May.
