Businessman turns down lie test in Aquino inquiry

A businessman refused Wednesday to take a lie detector test after denying he knew Rolando Galman, the man the government says assassinated opposition leader Benigno Aquino.

The head of a government-appointed board investigating the slaying told the businessman, Hermilo Gosuico, she had ''a feeling'' he was lying and challenged him on Tuesday to take the controversial test.
