Cameron Poole, who stole £648,000 from the London Philharmonic Orchestra while serving as its finance director, has won his bid to stay in Britain after leaving prison on the grounds that deportation to Australia would infringe his human rights to family life.
Poole, who was jailed for four years in October 2010, was divorced by his wife but claimed the right to see his children. The LPO won a court order on the Poole family home, which it sold to cover the missing funds. The orch was cleared by the Charity Commission of responsibility for the theft.
I guess Mr Poole won’t be working in the orchestral sector any time soon.
