I see this section of the proposal that caters adequately for this.   I note that in all cases opportunity is given to rectify issues except if there’s fraud 

13.4 In case of non-compliance and if evidence has been established in accordance with:

•    Breach of AFRINIC policies
•    Breach of the provisions of the registration service agreement or other legal agreements between the organization holding the resource and AFRINIC.

AFRNIC shall initiate the resource recovery process.

A) AFRINIC shall attempt to contact the organization and correct any discrepancy towards the RSA. Except in cases of fraudulent resource acquisition or unlawful usage and abuse, the organization shall be given a minimum of six months to effect the return of the resources.

 If the organization is cooperative and working in good faith to substantially restore compliance or has a valid need for additional time to renumber out of the affected blocks, AFRINIC shall negotiate a longer term. The acceptance level of compliance and duration of the longer term are at AFRINIC staff discretion.
