… Mr. Hussain’s improbable journey — from asylum-seeking immigrant to petty criminal to terror recruiter, prosecutors, has taken yet another turn. His complicated past is central to the investigation of the nation’s deadliest crash in years.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said the limo had failed inspections for problems with its brakes, suspension and chassis last month, and was being driven by a man lacking the proper license to operate a commercial vehicle. The car was also not certified to carry the 18 people riding in it when it crashed.“There is a ton of information that’s got to be processed — forensic information, witness statements and other materials,” a law enforcement official said of the investigation into the crash.

State Police have made clear that they would like to interview Mr. Hussain, 62.

Lee Kindlon, a lawyer for Mr. Hussain and Prestige, said he spoke on Tuesday with Mr. Hussain, who he said has been in Pakistan for some time dealing with health issues.

“He has indicated he is willing to come back if the investigation requires,” Mr. Kindlon said.

Citing the pending investigations, he declined further comment, saying, “I think it’s best right now to let the process take place.”

Shahed “Malik” Hussain, whose undercover work for the FBI has been controversial, testified over the course of several weeks during the ongoing trial of four Newburgh men standing trial for a terrorism plot. Hussain’s role in that sting operation came under fire recently from defense attorneys who, during their cross-examinations of the government’s star witness, pried at Hussain’s finances, conflicting statements, murky background and his previously unknown criminal history in Pakistan. The case is on schedule for closing arguments this week. Meanwhile, lawyers for two Albany men convicted in 2006 of money laundering in support of terrorism said they are closely examining whether Hussain’s testimony in the Newburgh case is in conflict with his testimony at the trial in Albany four years ago. They say the government never disclosed the fact Hussain had been arrested twice for murder in Pakistan. The government said they couldn’t confirm any details, but haven’t said what they actually knew in 2006.
