Nigerian police plan to charge Cheney in bribery case

Christian Science Monitor - Nigeria's anti-corruption police said they planned to file charges against former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney in a $180 million bribery case involving a former unit of oil services firm Halliburton. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission summoned the country chief of Halliburton and last week detained 10 Nigerian and expatriate Halliburton staff for questioning after raiding its Lagos office. "We are filing charges against Cheney," EFCC spokesman Femi Babafemi told Reuters, but declined to give any further details on what the charges were, or where they would be filed.

Excellent...take George W along as well. Look hard enough and you'll find something illegal he's done too.

Good luck.

They'll soon find out that the American ruling class "doesn't do law."

Many African nations, Nigeria included, are implicated by the Western press as being corrupt. The implied message is that somehow corruption is just "in the African's blood". Now we are seeing a glimmer of the truth. "Upstanding" characters like Cheney go into these nations and support and fund their worst possible elements in order to make a fortune. In the the process, the decent people in those nations are overwhelmed by well-funded crooks and have their countries looted. Good for the Nigerians that they are indicting Cheney! We should send him to them in chains to get the justice he and his kind deserve.
