I didnt mean ARIN was a person and I know ARIN is a big league organisation
with members.

Yes there is also point *2.b  and 2.d *also counts in the ARIN review
process and that point references* fraud and contravention of existing
policy and/or any other time without having to establish cause.*

12. Resource Review

   1. ARIN may review the current usage of any resources maintained in the
   ARIN database. The organization shall cooperate with any request from ARIN
   for reasonable related documentation.
   2. ARIN may conduct such reviews:
      1. when any new resource is requested,
      2. *whenever ARIN has reason to believe that the resources were
      originally obtained fraudulently or in contravention of existing
policy, or*
      3. whenever ARIN has reason to believe that an organization is not
      complying with reassignment policies, or
      4. *at any other time without having to establish cause unless a full
      review has been completed in the preceding 24 months.*
