Jeff Skilling, the former CEO of Enron, and the man who transformed the
company from a pipeline business into an energy giant, has vigorously defended
how he ran the company.
Testifying in Houston during the 11th week of his joint trial alongside Enron
founder Ken Lay, Skilling told jurors: ‘I am absolutely innocent.’
He also repeated what he told congressional panels in 2002 – that Enron was
‘in very good condition in the middle of August (2001)’ when he left,
He claimed that not in his wildest dreams could have conceived of what would
have happened and said he would never have left if he had known of the problems
the company would experience just a few months later.
