Earlier this month, Skilling told Congress: ‘On the day I left, I absolutely and unequivocally thought the company was in good shape.’
Already his testimony has been described as ‘not credible’ by one senior government official – James Greenwood, chairman of a energy and commerce’s subcommittee on oversight – to the BBC World Service.
A week after Skilling proclaimed his innocence, former Enron vice president Watkins accused Skilling, along with CFO Andrew Fastow, law firm Vinson & Elkins, and Andersen of ‘duping’ Ken Lay and the Enron Board.
To date, efforts to get statements out of former senior management at Enron have proved elusive, with both ex-CEO Kenneth Lay and sacked audit partner David Duncan invoking their Fifth Amendments rights.
Skilling will appear alongside his chief accusers: current Enron president Jeffrey McMahon and his deputy Watkins.
Before his sudden resignation in August last year, Skillings’ six months in charge had seen the company’s share price skyrocket from $42 to $82.
