[rpd] Appeal Committee Response - Re: (Fwd) Appeal Committee status

Board Chair, AFRINIC,

The Appeal Committee (AC) held its scheduled meeting on Thursday, 18 Feb 2021, online
where it also considered on it agenda your e-mail sent to individual Appeal Committee
members as copied here below.

As you will see in the AC minutes soon to be published, the quorate meeting was chaired by
Adam Nelson and I was asked to send you a reply to your e-mails.

The Committee noted in its terms of reference (ToR) that the AFRINIC Board has the right to
replace any or all Appeal Committee members subject to ToR Section 3.3.1 among others,

However the Committee observed in Section 3.3.4 of the ToR that:
"3.3.4. In the event that an appeal is in progress at a time when the Board considers
replacement of any or all Appeal Committee members, then the Board should delay any such
replacement until such time as there is no appeal in progress; except that, if there continue to
be appeals in progress after six(6) months, then the Board shall not delay any longer."

The Committee then agreed to finalise processing the appeal that was in progress after
which the Committee agreed to await further direction from the Board.

Here then attached, for your copy, is the finalised Appeal Committee report on the policy
compliance dashboard proposal AFPUB-2020-GEN-001-DRAFT01 that the Appeal
Committee has now finalised and has already submitted to the PDWG through the RPD
mailing list as its ToR require.

The Appeal Committee would like to bring to your attention that there are two appeals also in
progress as listed in the AC timeline that
are subject to ToR Section 3.3.4 and hence the AC awaits further directions from the PDWG
and/or the Board.

Dear Dr Nyirenda,

We refer to the two recent resignations from the Appeal Committee.

AFRINIC stands legally advised that in line with the AFRINIC Policy
Development Appeal Committee Terms of Reference, Version 2 (2017),
the Appeal Committee is a committee made up of five members.

Since the committee is no longer properly constituted, the remaining
members cannot continue with their work until the committee is
re-constituted by the AFRINIC Board of Directors.

We thank you for your understanding and your usual collaboration.

S. Moonesamy
