Halliburton May Pay $500 Million to Keep Cheney Out of Prison: Report

Oilfield services company Halliburton is in negotiations with the Nigerian government to keep its former CEO, Dick Cheney, out of prison, according to a news report.
Sources inside Nigeria's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission told GlobalPost this week that a settlement keeping the charges against Cheney out of court could cost as much as $500 million.
Nigeria filed charges against Cheney this week in an investigation of alleged bribery estimated at $180 million. Prosecutors named both Halliburton and KBR in the charges, as well as three European oil and engineering companies -- Technip SA, EniSpa, and Saipem Construction.


  1. Boy, they treat their ex-employes good. I wonder if they feel like they owe him something?

  2. 8:47
    Dick Cheney brought multi-billion dollar contracts to Halliburton from Iraq and Afghanistan wars. 500 million dollars are nothing.

  3. Remember the Pfizer company in connecticut used impoverished Nigerian children as controls in drug trials.

    You go Nigeria! Get Cheney for all he's worth.

  4. Before the salk oral vaccine for polio was developed African people were used as guinee pigs ,as a test lab for developing an injectable polio vaccine cultivated in monkey tissues .
    Some say this is how AIDS got a big foothold in Africa.

  5. If they're willing to offer $500MM, there's no reason they won't pay $2 Billion.
