Investigators want Enron accountant to talk
US investigators are trying to carve a deal with a former senior Enron accountant in a bid to obtain evidence against top executives at the collapsed company.
According to reports, the US Justice Department is in talks with Ben Glisan, Enron’s former treasurer, in the hope he will become a key witness for the government.
Glisan was fired last year by Enron president Jeffrey McMahon who believed he had invested in one of the partnerships set up by former chief financial officer Andrew Fastow – a breach of Enron’s code of ethics.
Investigators now believe Glisan ‘should know everything’about the partnerships that were at the centre of the Enron collapse.
