WASHINGTON, DC — Energy trading company Enron has not handed over documents about its many partnerships to a Senate subcommittee investigating its failure.

Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND), chairman of the Consumer Affairs Subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee, stated that even after a number of requests, the company will not give investigators information relating to approximately 3,000 partnerships. Enron is alleged to have used the partnerships to bolster its financial rating while masking losses that could range into the hundreds of millions of dollars.
