If the screwing has already been done, they'd be covered anyway.
If a company not executively directed by the majority shareholder
screws around, it seems unusual to punish the shareholder (but
somewhat justified, in my opinion).

Me neither. It's just very different to: "any natural person,
acting either individually or as part of an organ of the legal
person, who has a leading position within the legal person"
and I'm suspicious of unfamiliar legal language.
