El Pais newspaper reports that Khayata said in late 1990s there was a large flow of terrorists-mujaheddin from Spain to Chechnya.
By El Pais data, Khayata agreed to cooperate with investigator-judge Baltaras Garson and explained the hidden meaning of Spain police-recorded phone talks between the militants. Then, they had pretended to be talking about commerce but in fact they had been discussing terrorist activity.
It became known, in particular, that they called Chechnya "another factory", and mujaheddin terrorists - "businessmen".
Garson asked whether terrorists could name Afghanistan a "factory", as "many terrorists headed for that country then". "No, no, it's Chechnya. And the most convenient way to Chechnya is via Turkey," Khayata said.
He said militants from Bosnia were heading for Chechnya.
