Washington–APA. A grand jury in South Texas indicted U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and former attorney General Alberto Gonzales for "organized criminal activity" related to alleged abuse of inmates in private prisons, APA reports quoting Reuters. The grand jury in Willacy County, in the Rio Grande Valley near the U.S.-Mexico border, said Cheney is "profiteering from depriving human beings of their liberty". The indictment, overseen by county District Attorney Juan Guerra, cites the case of Gregorio De La Rosa, who died on April 26, 2001, inside a private prison in Willacy County. The indictment cites a "money trail" of Cheney’s ownership in prison-related enterprises including the Vanguard Group, which owns an interest in private prisons in south Texas. Former attorney general Gonzales used his position to "stop the investigations as to the wrong doings" into assaults in county prisons, the indictment said. The indictment has not been seen by a judge, who could dismiss it.
