The rehabilitation of IT group EOH is an arduous task, and the process kicked up a gear with an ENS probe, key details of which were given to the market recently. The FM asked CEO Stephen van Coller: why not just lay it all out?

There have probably been 10 presentations over a five-month period. ENS is now building civil and criminal cases and we’re creating charge sheets against the different layers of people. You’ve got people who [engaged in wrongdoing], people who were directors who didn’t do [anything wrong] and nondirectors, but senior managers who knew [what was going on] but didn’t do [anything]. So there are three layers that I have to go through and make sure are dealt with properly, whether it’s disciplinary [measures], more training or prosecuting people. We’ve been through over a million e-mails. That’d be a 1,000-page report and I don’t really know what that achieves.
