Your COPY statement is an SQL statement that will not need the CopyManager.
It will read the data from a file on the server.
Just run it like a normal statement.
You'll need superuser privileges though.

I didn't look at it, but I guess that CopyManager is only necessary
if you want to load from or export to files on the client side,
which amounts to a COPY ... TO/FROM STDIN in SQL.
