Hanaro takes aim at LG stock buysHanaro Telecom said yesterday that its employee-stockholders and 20 other small shareholders have asked a court to ban LG Group affiliates from exercising their voting rights on shares those firms hold. Hanaro, an Internet service provider, is the object of a tug of war between LG and the rest of its shareholders over management rights. The shareholders told the Seoul District Court that the LG arms violated the law while acquiring their stakes in the Internet firm. They accused the LG firms of buying shares in the names of members of the family that controls the group and of falsely declaring that some of their purchases were portfolio investments.
