Sechin comments on his absence at hearing of Ulyukaev’s case
Rosneft's CEO has told that the company's issues are in priority to him at the moment.
On Thursday, the head of Rosneft, Igor Sechin, answered questions of journalists concerning his absence in Zamoskvoretsky Court of Moscow for giving testimonies within the case against ex-minister Alexey Ulyukaev accused of bribe-taking.
According to Sechin, he always seeks to fulfill all requirements of the legislation in full, however now his main task is “to execute his functional duties as the president of the Rosneft company”.
Sechin added that he intends to satisfy “all necessary conditions” as soon as it would be possible to “agree on necessary schedules”. He emphasized that he has repeatedly given written evidences and also made public statements.
To recall, Ulyukaev's defense has submitted a petition for direction agenda to the head of Rosneft for the third time at this hearing. The court has satisfied the petition. By the way, Sechin has refused to answer the question whether he received at least one of the agendas.
The prosecution declared the top manager a witness in the case against Ulyukaev in August. The former head of the Ministry of Economic Development is accused of taking a bribe of $2 million for positive assessment of the department during purchase of Bashneft.
