Judge orders Rosneft CEO Sechin to appear as witness in bribery case

MOSCOW, Nov 8 (Reuters) - A Russian judge on Wednesday ordered Igor Sechin, the head of Russian oil major Rosneft , to appear as a witness in trial of ex-economy minister Alexei Ulyukayev.

Ulyukayev was dismissed and put under house arrest in November over allegations he extorted a $2 million bribe from Rosneft. He denies the charges.

The former minister was detained at Rosneft's Moscow headquarters. (Reporting by Polina Nikolskaya; writing by Vladimir Soldatkin; editing by Jack Stubbs)
