The Pay Off Is Complete: Charges Dropped Against Cheney

Nigeria's anti-corruption agency said on Friday it has dropped bribery charges against former . Vice President Dick Cheney and oil services company Halliburton after the company agreed to pay a fine, reports Reuters.

"It was formally dropped today," Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) spokesman Femi Babafemi said. He said the Nigerian government had agreed to an offer made by Halliburton to pay fines totaling up to $250 million.


  1. That's all this was about from the beginning.
    Now more Nigerian Vice Presidents(they got bunches of them) can own property in the US.

  2. This type of bribery is always ambigious. did they trump up charges to solicit a bribe, like a Mexican cop that makes a stop when you did nothing you know wrong, or did the VP buy his way out of a valid infraction?
