[rpd] Last Call for "AFPUB-2016-GEN-001-DRAFT-04 - Internet Number Resources Review by AFRINIC"

Let me put this another way - and I formally request that the board seek legal opinion on this and provide this community feedback - in the event of a clear and substantiated legal risk to the company - that has been officially stated by legal council - existing, and a director continuing to advocate for the same - does this not constitute a breach of section 143.c and potentially 143.d of the Mauritian companies act.

While in the past we have all agreed that board members have the right to partake in the PDP - something I fully and wholeheartedly support - and while I think it is prudent to assume that legal risk raised must be clearly substantiated before a breach of fiduciary duty can occur, I would like legal view on where this line is - and I would like the board to provide this feedback to the community in official capacity

When it will be time for you to ratify the policy, with the "board
hat" back on, how can you possibly then ratify a policy that has a
direct negative feedback from the AFRINIC ltd's legal advisor from the
company you then represent?

A policy that potentially puts the company at risks according to the
legal advisor's own report.
Doesn't that puts you as a board of directors member, who is expected
to work in the best interest of the organisation "AFRINIC Ltd" in a
tough position to justify even considering passing such a policy, with
hat on or not.
