Three British bankers pleaded guilty in Houston to Enron-related charges that they conspired with Andrew Fastow to enrich themselves at the expense of their employer, the National Westminster Bank of England. They also agreed to repay the bank $7.5 million. Their trial was scheduled to start in January. The extradiction of "the NatWest Three" created controversy in Great Britain in 2006.
