If Cloud Innovation has indicated that they predominantly “lease” the IP address space to other parties, then why did AfriNic grant their request in the first place, if it violates their policy ?

Michel -

That presumes that Cloud Innovation actually requested the address space for that purpose, and hence why many are asking Cloud Innovation (and those associated with CI) the question "Is Cloud Innovation’s use of the blocks in question within the remit and purpose for which they were originally justified?”

It is a simple yes/no question of fact, but one which has alluded any official answer to date.  It’s been suggested that they’ve already said as much in previous emails, but a simple yes/no response doesn’t seem forthcoming – although it would certainly clarify quite a bit.
