SEOUL, Feb 2 (Reuters) – A South Korean court said on Thursday it decided to end Hanjin Shipping Co Ltd’s court receivership process and expects to declare bankruptcy on February 17 after a two-week period for appeals.

Swiss shipping group MSC said on Wednesday its unit has bought a stake in Hanjin Shipping’s U.S. port operator, the latest Hanjin asset to be sold. (Reporting by Joyce Lee; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
