Vedanta says to challenge appointment of provisional liquidator of Zambia's KCM

LUSAKA, May 23 (Reuters) - Vedanta Resources VDAN.NS said on Thursday it will challenge in court a decision by Zambia's High Court to appoint a legal firm as a provisional liquidator of Konkola Copper Mines (KCM).

The liquidation application was brought against Vedanta-controlled KCM by Zambian state-owned ZCCM-IH, which holds a 20.6% stake in the unit.

"Vedanta has serious concerns about the intentions of the applicants and the procedures that were followed by ZCCM-IH as a representative of government to obtain a provisional liquidation order on an ex parte basis against KCM in an apparent misuse of the legal process to date," the company said in a statement.
