Nigeria's anti-corruption agency has charged Dick Cheney, a former US vice-president, over a bribery scheme involving Halliburton, an oil services company, during the time he served as the company's top executive.
The charges stem from a case involving upto $180 million allegedly paid in bribes to Nigerian officials, Femi Babafemi, a spokesman for the country's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, said on Tuesday.
Halliburton and other firms allegedly paid the bribes to win a contract to build a $6bn liquefied natural gas plant in Nigeria's oil-rich southern delta, he said.
I guess it's a pity Nigeria dosen't have capital punishment, huh?
