Just step aside if COI has been raised against you for ethucal and professional good standing. Why cling on I wonder ..... This is not a football game;-)

Nop- I do not agree with you.  This has nothing to do with trust. We are not in the village doing business.  This is professional ethics and you are in an international organization.  You will not only be compromising DCA, which filed the complaint against you, you should have known that you will be also compromising the African gTLD.

Ms Ma

I am not the sort of person who threatens defamation actions for the ludicrous. Trying to bait me into a conflict situation on a       mailing list will not work any more than making false and factually incorrect allegations. Call me names, make baseless allegations, use innuendo, lie .... I don't care. There are people on this list who know me and my integrity.

If there is anyone who does not know me or who has any doubts - I will be happy to engage with you directly.

I also think that the trust of this community is far more important than some small financial victory in a court of law.

You are trying to defend yourself by saying that a review was done many months before which would be your Statement of Interest that was declared in March 2012.  The point is that you have not told us if there has been any Conflict Review following ICANN's receipt of DCA's letters, and if there was the outcome of any such review.  So please, the issues raised is after the fact. 

If you think that the allegations are false, why are you not threatening to sue DCA for defamation?, against the backdrop that you are legally trained.  The fact that you are not umbraged, and threatening to sue DCA shows that you are not quite confident nor comfortable with the position you find yourself in regarding the Conflict of Interest matter.
I think you must simply take the honourable path like the other conflicted Board Members, and fully adhere to ICANN's Gold standard to be achieved regarding Conflict of Interest matters, and this will be the end of the matter.
