Halliburton convicted of Bribing Nigerian Officials

Employees of Halliburton Inc., a United States energy services group, after an intensive investigation have been charged with acts of bribing Nigerian officials.

The investigation stems from the construction of a giant liquefied natural gas plant on the Nigerian coast near Port Harcourt that began in 1996 and received a boost last year when former Halliburton Inc. executive, Albert J. Stanley pleaded guilty to orchestrating $180 million in bribes to senior Nigerian officials.
