Yet another sordid chapter in the murky annals of Halliburton might well lead to the indictment of Dick Cheney by a French court on charges of
bribery, money-laundering, and misuse of corporate assets.
At the heart of the matter is a $6 billion gas liquification factory built in Nigeria on behalf of oil mammoth Shell by Halliburton--the company which
Cheney headed before becoming vice president--in partnership with a large French petroengineering company, Technip. Nigeria has been rated by the
anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International as the second-most corrupt country in the world, surpassed only by Bengladesh.
