MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian Investigative Committee is continuing "active investigative activity" into the case of ex-economy minister Alexei Ulyukayev, the committee said on Friday.
Ulyukayev was dismissed and put under house arrest in November over allegations he extorted a $2 million (1.59 million pounds) bribe from top oil producer Rosneft. His lawyer says he denies the charges.
