As you know, the U.S. government is investigating hundreds, if not thousands, of relatives, acquaintances and associates of the individuals who may have been involved in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. We believe that the media will soon be reporting that one of the many individuals being questioned is an Enron employee in Houston. It is appropriate for us to withhold judgment and to continue to cooperate fully with federal authorities. Because this is a matter in the hands of the federal authorities, we cannot provide additional information at this time. However, we will keep you informed, to the greatest extent possible.
Please keep in mind that thousands of people who may or may not have any information about the terrorist attacks are being questioned as part of this investigation. We continue to have every reason to believe that our employees and facilities are safe. If you have concerns, please call Corporate Security at (713) 345-2804. If you receive any media or external inquiries about this matter, please call Public Relations at (713) 853-5670.
At Enron, diversity is one of our strengths, and we respect and embrace all people of all faiths and beliefs. Please continue to keep our employees who have been impacted by this tragedy in your thoughts and prayers.
