BREAKING : Nigeria Files Charges Against Cheney In Halliburton Bribery Scheme


Dick Cheney is officially a wanted man.

The former vice president was charged by Nigerian officials Tuesday

along with eight other individuals in a bribery and conspiracy scheme

over the construction of a liquefied natural gas facility in the country

that took place while Cheney was chief executive of Halliburton.


and its one-time subsidiary, Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR),

were also charged.

KBR, which also has handled lucrative US government support contracts for US troops in Iraq and elsewhere,

was spun off from Halliburton in 2007 into a separate company.

“It includes Dick Cheney,” said Nigerian prosecutor Godwin Obla, about the 16-count charge filed in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

“There are conspiracy charges and giving gratification to public officers.

There is also a charge for obstruction of justice …

It is important to stress that the filing of this charge today is just one out of many steps that would be taken by the prosecution.”
