KENNER, La. (AP) - Hearings into the explosion and sinking of
the BP-operated oil rig Deepwater Horizon continue on Thursday, but
one BP witness will not be testifying.
Coast Guard Capt. Hung Nguyen said Robert Kaluza, BP's well site
leader on the Deepwater Horizon, was scheduled to testify but has
exercised his 5th Amendment right to not incriminate himself.
Nguyen said Kaluza's attorney informed the Coast Guard he
wouldn't be appearing.
The rig exploded April 20 and sank two days later.
