Berardino to appear before investigators

Congressional investigators have ordered Andersen chief Joe Berardino to appear before a public hearing on the shredding of Enron-related documents.

The investigators were forced to issue a subpoena requiring Berardino to appear before the US Congressional Energy & Commerce committee after Andersen had insisted neither Berardino nor any other senior officials would be available to appear before the committee.

Senate officials were said to have been annoyed that Berardino had been able to make time for television interviews.

The committee has also ordered David Duncan, the sacked Andersen partner from the Houston office at the centre of the Enron scandal, to appear before the hearing, scheduled to take place tomorrow.
