Press Secretary of «Rosneft» Mikhail Leontyev did not rule out the appeal of the company to the court in connection with the publication of the air force of the alleged interrogation protocols the head of «Rosneft» Igor Sechin in the case of former Minister of economic development Alexei Ulyukayev.

«Do not rule out going to court», — said Leontiev RIA Novosti.

Earlier, the air force, referring to the alleged interrogation protocols Sechin in the course of the investigation Ulyukayev, announced that the first conversation in which the speaker extorted from the head of the oil company bribes, did not hear other witnesses. They can confirm the meeting, but not a conversation.

Ulyukayev lawyer Darejan Queeze in comments to RIA Novosti reported that Sechin, during the interrogation, during the investigation said that the fact of extortion of a bribe from the speaker can confirm other people.

«I don’t know what say the lawyers speaker, they let the court do their job. The same applies, incidentally, to the BBC, because the BBC is not a judicial authority and a shift to BBC, in my opinion, absolutely ridiculous. Do you have any reason to believe these documents are authentic? Do you have any idea about why this is done?», — said Leontiev.

«At least malfeasance, stuffing or falsification of certain court protocols during that time as these documents must be read and considered in court in the near future. Why is it done? I have absolutely obvious version is tactics: to turn the process into a farce, because the only way to take a blow from caught red-handed bribe, is to discredit the process. I would not want to participate in it,» — said Leontiev.

He advised journalists to be careful because, in his opinion, in this situation, they simply used.

The speaker is accused of receiving a bribe of $ 2 million for the issuance of the Ministry of economic development of the conclusion, which allowed Rosneft to acquire the government’s stake in Bashneft. Sechin is a key prosecution witness in this high profile trial. It was he, in cooperation with the FSB handed the former Minister a bag with two million dollars, which the consequence considers as a bribe. According to the defense, the speaker was convinced that the bag was lying wine. The former Minister said that he regarded the incident as a provocation.
