Skilling: I never cheated on taxes

Testimony ends with more denials

Former Enron chief executive Jeffrey Skilling brought his testimony in his
federal fraud trial to a close yesterday by denying that he ever cheated on his
taxes.

Facing cross-examination from prosecutor Sean Berkowitz, Skilling told jurors
that he has heard nothing from the Internal Revenue Service despite repeated
reviews of his tax returns.

‘I paid my taxes,’ AP reported Skilling as saying, claiming that he paid more
than $66m from 1997 through 2004.

Enron founder and co-defendant Kenneth Lay, will take the stand next on
Monday and is expected to deny any allegations of wrongdoing.

Lay, said he was pleased with Skilling’s performance and said he was ready
for his turn next week.
