Ex-GREAT WHITE Tour Manager Asks To Avoid Questioning In Nightclub Fire Case

The Associated Press reports that former GREAT WHITE tour manager Daniel Biechele, whose pyrotechnics sparked a nightclub fire that killed 100 people, wants to avoid being questioned in a lawsuit over the fire.

An attorney for Biechele argued in federal court on Wednesday (August 1) that his client could face federal prosecution or even be charged in other states if he says something potentially incriminating.

Biechele is already serving a four-year prison sentence for his role in The Station nightclub fire in 2003.

Lawyers for survivors and victims' relatives say the prospect of federal prosecution is remote. They say it's time for Biechele to reveal all that he knows about what led to the blaze.
