Zambia said on Tuesday it was proceeding with the liquidation of Vedanta Resources’ Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) even after South Africa’s High Court granted the firm an urgent interdict halting the liquidation until a final decision is made through arbitration.

“To that effect, it has no effect on the processes that are going on in Zambia,” he said, referring to the South African judgment.
