Corporate thug jailed

Posted:

«Ben Glisan, formerly treasurer at energy trader Enron, has become the first executive to be jailed for his part in the huge financial scandal at the firm.

Meanwhile, former chairman Kenneth Lay and former chief executive Jeffrey Skilling are under investigation, but have not been charged with any offence.

Prosecutors hope that, by successfully proceeding against smaller officials, they will eventually be able to build up a cast-iron case against the top management.»
