It is a question that I honestly have no answer to, and although Andrew expressed his opinion, he does note that he is not a lawyer and would like independent legal counsel on the matter.

I think it’s pretty clear.  AFRINIC is registered in terms of the Companies Act of Mauritius <http://attorneygeneral.govmu.org/English/Documents/A-Z%20Acts/C/Page%202/COMPANIES%20ACT.pdf> as a company limited by guarantee.  Such companies do not exactly have shareholders, they have members.  The nine Directors are registered as members of the company.
