I have been following this saga for a few days now and I can't help but
wonder (And this is aside from discussing the case of Cloud Innovation and
AfriNIC) I want to address the process of Mauritian law.

How does a court in Mauritius freeze the bank accounts of another company
through ex parte proceedings? For those who might not understand what I
mean - *ex parte is **done with respect to or in the interests of one side
only or of an interested outside party. *This is a basic tenet in law. Was
Afrinic given an opportunity to defend itself before these orders to freeze
its accounts were given? Or were summons given and Afrinic ignored them?

If the former is true then maybe it's time to address the issue of the
domicility of Afrinic. Maybe Mauritius is too hostile for a
Pan-African-based organization. How else do you interpreter this? A court
giving an unprecedented ex parte ruling against an African Organization in
favor of a Hongkong-based organization who we are all clear is a purveyor
of African IP Addresses to organizations outside of Africa as its core
business model.

Let's put aside all this hullabaloo of ohh...The board didn't do
this...Oooh the board should have done this! and let's address the elephant
in the room. Everything else is a sideshow.
