SHARE BARRY’S LAWYER SAYS ACCUSER WOULD `TELL ANY STORY’

A restaurateur who testified against Mayor Marion Barry has a history as a prosecution witness willing to tell any story to avoid being deported to his native Iran, a defense attorney says.

Robert Mance, one of Barry's lawyers, asked Hassan Mohammadi at the mayor's cocaine and perjury trial Tuesday what would happen if he were sent back."I would be prosecuted" by the "new regime" in Tehran for having worked for the deposed government of the late Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi at the Iranian embassy here, Mohammadi replied.
