How can Afrinic "measure" the legitimacy of an action?

Afrinic cannot do the job of local courts I presume. In order to support
a) and b) it is important to have the decision taken at the level of the
local courts. Otherwise, shutting down the internet in a country
(without a court order) becomes equivalent to arresting an individual
without a warrant.
