The viability of a central witness in the case against Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani was questioned by Judge Lewis Kaplan yesterday as Hussein Abebe stuck to his claim he was testifying voluntarily and was not threatened with prosecution for involvement in the bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998. Mr. Abebe, who sold Mr. Ghailani the dynamite used to bomb the U.S. embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and is cooperating with the government, insisted that Tanzanian and U.S. authorities were not holding criminal charges over his head to force his testimony.
