MOCOW, August 18. /TASS/. The head of Rosneft Igor Sechin has filed a lawsuit against the daily Novaya Gazeta about a yacht, the spokeswoman for Moscow’s Basmanny Court, Yunona Tsaryova, has told TASS.
"On August 16, the court received a lawsuit from Igor Sechin against Novaya Gazeta. The lawsuit contains a demand for the protection of his honor and dignity. No date for considering the case on the merits has been set yet," she said.
Tsaryova explained that the plaintiff’s demands were identical to those made by Olga Sechina, who had turned to court earlier. The plaintiff wants Novaya Gazeta to disavow the publication on its website and to destroy all copies of the newspaper dated August 1 that carried an article entitled Secret of Princess Olga. The article’s author speculated that Rosneft chief Igor Sechin may be connected with one of the world’s most luxurious and expensive yachts.
Earlier, the company’s representatives had declared the intention to file a lawsuit against Novaya Gazeta, the television channel Dozhd and other media for publishing unconfirmed content. They said an orchestrated media campaign was underway against Rosneft and its top management. Earlier, the Basmanny Court refrained from taking any action on Olga Sechina’s lawsuit, setting August 31 as the deadline for correcting errors made in filing the lawsuit.
