Nigeria charged former Vice President Dick Cheney on Tuesday in a bribery case involving a former subsidiary of Halliburton, claiming Cheney was responsible for what happened while he was at the helm of the company. Nigerian officials claim employees or agents of KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, paid a $180 million bribe between 1994 and 2004 to secure a $6 billion contract to build a liquefied natural gas plant in the Niger Delta. KBR pleaded guilty last year to charges relating to the bribe brought forth by the U.S., and Nigerian police have already detained two employees of Halliburton for questioning. Terence O’Donnell, a lawyer for Cheney, denied the charges were legitimate and said an investigation by the Department of Justice and the SEC cleared the former VP of any wrongdoing. Halliburton has denied taking part in any bribes.
