FG Halliburton Scandal

The FG has assigned some lawyers in its teams of special prosecutors to review the multi-billion naira Halliburton and Malabu scams.

The move is said to be part of the Federal Government’s renewed efforts to re-open the cases.

The team of prosecutors, sources told Punch on Wednesday, were expected to review the cases and advise the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, on the way forward on the cases.

One of the sources was quoted as saying that, “There are basic things expected from the prosecutors.

“The lawyers may advise that investigation should start afresh on both cases. They may recommend further investigations to fill in the gaps.

“They may even advise the AGF that there is sufficient evidence to proceed with the suspects named in the cases and recommend the appropriate charges against them.

“I cannot tell when the group of lawyers will be through with their review but I can assure you that work is ongoing on it.”
