Former counter-fraud leader at Oxfam sentenced for fraud

Port au Prince after the January 2010 earthquake, courtesy of WikipediaThe former head of counter-fraud at anti-poverty group Oxfam was sentenced to prison for more than two years after using fake companies to defraud the charity while working in Haiti.

Edward McKenzie-Green, 34, was convicted of stealing more than $107,000, the Telegraph reported last week.

He took the money while conducting supposed investigations of fellow charity workers in earthquake-ravaged Haiti in 2010 and 2011.

Investigators found 17 fraudulent invoices from two companies under McKenzie-Green’s control.

In March, he pleaded guilty to fraud.

The scam involved McKenzie-Green submitting false invoices to companies he had set up, paying money into the bank account of his friend or father, then transferring the cash into his own account.

In sentencing McKenzie-Green to prison for two years and five months, Judge Wendy Joseph QC said: “You have taken from those who desperately need it substantial sums of money. Worse, you have undermined the public confidence in a charitable institution.”
