Enron HQ raided by FBI
The Enron shredding scandal re-emerged today after FBI agents stormed Enron's headquarters in an attempt to find out whether new allegations of document shredding are founded.
According to reports today, federal agents stormed the company’s Houston offices amid concerns over fresh shredding of potentially tricky paperwork, despite court orders prohibiting any further paper dumping.
Maureen Castaneda, director of international investment at Enron, until she was made redundant a few days ago, told America’s ABC News yesterday: ‘The shredding was going on until I left.’ She also admitted to removing a box of shredded papers with her as she left the office for the last time.
However, Enron claims it has repeatedly told staff to preserve evidence and said it was investigating the allegations.
