Dear Mr Folayan,
I am copying this email to the Resource Members mailing list in line
with Principle 8 of the Code of Corporate Governance (Mauritius).
The question which you asks pertains to a matter which has not been
discussed by the Board of Directors. It is not possible for me to
know the (future) intention of the Board.
As per corporate governance practice, all documents needed for the
Board to take a decision are provided to all the Directors. It is,
in my opinion, consistent with the decision taken by the Board during
a meeting held on 30 November 2017. It is my view that the Directors
should be given access to all relevant documents so that they can
exercise their independent judgement. It would be premature to
comment about intentions at this point in time.
As I understand from above email, it’s decision to suspend AC was not a collective decision of the board. I can, of course, be entirely wrong so feel free to have chair of the board or anyone correct me.
Still, I think the most important thing now is to have rest of AC finish rest of the appeals in process unaffected.

Thank you for starting this thread, brother.
I am writing to you just present a possible thought process based on recent publicly available fact:
4. Chair of the board, without consent decision from the whole board,
...any evidence to support this affirmation?
decided unilaterally to request AC stop working based on the resignation alone.
...i think the BoD's Chair has said that the decision
was based on an interpretation of a governing text.
5. We see 3-2 vote in AC’s minutes.
For the integrity of the process and to be fair to all parties, I would suggest the following:
1. AC continues finish the currant appeal that is in process and publish its report.
2. Board appoints an investigation committee after above process is finalised and make a public report on the allegations. Since these are serious and public allegations, so should the results be of the investigation. We should take serious action prevent the said person in engaging in community work again. If nothing is found, we should also make it clear to the world that it was an unfound accusation and it was of malicious intent in nature.
...i and others have already called the BoD to do
something similar :-/
The BoD's Chair has promised to discuss with
PDWG's AC members...iirc.
3. If possible, AFRINIC should publish the recorded zoom meeting video file for the public to review.
...this should be only accessible to the investigation
committee, at least until it confirms that there is nothing
