Nigeria drops charges against Cheney, Halliburton

Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency said Friday that it had formally dropped bribery charges against former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and oil services company Halliburton¬† after the company agreed to pay a fine.

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

Halliburton could not immediately be reached for comment.
