The Bangladesh Enterprise Institute (BEI) organized A talk on Enron Behind Closed Doors: How A U.S. Prosecutor Investigated and Prosecuted the Largest Corporate Fraud Case in American History. The talk was held from 3.30 pm to 5.00 pm on Monday, March 17, 2008, at the BEI Conference Room (House 20, Road 5, Gulshan-1, Dhaka).

Assistant U. S. Attorney Cliff Stricklin one of the trial prosecutors in the Enron case and First Assistant U.S. Attorney, U.S. Department of Justice will be the keynote speaker.

Ever wondered how corporate fraud cases are investigated? How a prosecutor marshals millions of documents of evidence of a multi-billion dollar corporate fraud? How he and the police get witnesses to cooperate? What it is like to cross examine a CEO who perpetrated this fraud and trap him with his own statements?  How a woman scorned can be a prosecutor’s best friend?

Enron was the seventh largest corporation in America until the accounting schemes came unraveled. Assistant United States Attorney Cliff Stricklin, one of the trial prosecutors in the Enron case will tell the story of corporate greed and financial manipulation that left millions of working Americans without jobs or a retirement fund or both and caused severe losses for millions more.

He will provide a rare glimpse into the anatomy of a trial and U.S. corporate governance practices and reporting requirements.  After his speech, he will answer questions.
