FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Uniper (UN01.DE) said a motion to appoint a special auditor at this year’s annual general meeting to identify possible breaches of duty and violations of the law by the group’s management is backed by shareholder Elliott.

A Germany-based spokesman for Elliott, which in December disclosed a 7.38-percent stake in Uniper, had no immediate comment.
