Another BP Employee Takes the Fifth

According to reports from the WSJ, the third BP Plc (NYSE: BP) employee has declined to testify before a panel in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill investigation.

The engineer, Mark Hafle, evoked the infamous Fifth Amendment of the Constitution.

Hafle, who appeared before a U.S. Coast Guard-Interior Department investigative joint panel in May, has declined to appear for a second time. Hafle was an engineer in the planning of the deepwater well in the Gulf of Mexico.

Others who have declined to testify include Brian Morel, a drilling engineer involved in the planning of the well, and Robert Kaluza, BP's day-shift manager on the rig on April 20, 2010.
