Vibato Starts Petition for Victims of ex-Enron CEO, Jeff Skilling

Share Article

Vibato has started a petition to Judge Simeon Lake, who will make the final decision on Skilling's early release.

Vibato, the only provider of the fixed-price, best-practice approach to meeting Sarbanes-Oxley and SAS-related compliance requirements, has launched a petition against the early release of former Enron CEO, Jeffrey Skilling. The US Department of Justice released information to the public regarding the possibility of an early release on April 4, 2013 (Court Docket Number: 4:04-cr-25-2). Skilling has served six of a 24-year prison sentence related to a 19-count conviction of fraud, conspiracy, insider trading, and lying to auditors (case no. 4:04-cr-00025 U.S. vs. Jeffrey K. Skilling US District Court for the Southern District of Texas Houston Division.)

The petition is intended to provide a platform for the public to voice their opinion about Skilling’s early release efforts. The petition results will be delivered to the Honorable Judge Simeon Lake who presided over the original sentencing and who will be presiding over Skilling’s most recent appeal.

CIO & Co-Founder of Vibato, Teresa Bockwoldt, explains the purpose of this campaign, “As internal auditors, we strongly believe in the requirement that public companies must be held accountable for providing accurate financial information to the investing public. There has been very little press about his efforts and we are hopeful this petition will bring comfort to the victims and information to the masses.”
