A multi-millionaire who was accused of spiriting away three Nazi-era gold bars as part of an attempt to conceal assets from his ex-wife was ordered to hand her a £2.4million divorce settlement yesterday. Businessman Peter Brandon, 67, had claimed the ruling would leave him ‘impoverished’ because his total wealth stood at £2million, while his ex-wife Christina continues to live in the £2million marital mansion.But the Court of Appeal yesterday backed the award made by Mr Justice Ryder in July, who found that Mr Brandon had tried to conceal additional assets worth £2million – including the gold bars – from the court, in order to keep his wife from sharing them.
