Neocon Dick Cheney to face corruption charges in Nigeria

Well if ever a story made me rub my hands with childish glee, this would be one.

Notorious warmonger Dick Cheney is to be charged with corruption charges in connection to his time at Halliburton – a company which made rather a lot of money from Dick’s notorious warmongering.

Reported by the BBC today:

Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency is to charge former US Vice-President Dick Cheney over a bribery scandal that involves a former subsidiary of energy firm Halliburton.

And from the Huffington Post:

Nigerian authorities will charge former Vice President Dick Cheney over a bribery scandal that is alleged to involve Halliburton, BusinessWeek reports. An arrest warrant “will be issued and transmitted through Interpol,” said Godwin Obla, the prosecuting counsel at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Nigeria.

My little value added on this would be a reference to this extradition treaty between Nigeria and the US that entered into force in June 1935. Who wants to bet it will be enforced? Anyone?
