I do not agree with your statement that this is an absurd question. In
fact, I believe it is a legitimate requirement to have the person's
consent before publishing any document that contains personal
information about the person.

AFRINIC Ltd being a registered company in Mauritius has to abide to the
Data Protection Act [1] of Mauritius.

In fact, on the same note, I notice that the privacy statement [2] of
afrinic.net dates back to September 2015 and refers the Data Protection
Act 2004 instead of the 2017's amended act.
