AFRINIC issued a communique after Cloud Innovation published "right of reply" in Mauritian newspaper

The legal battle between AFRINIC and one of its resource members, Cloud Innovation Ltd, continues. However, it seems that the fight is not just in the Supreme Court of Mauritius anymore but they are also fighting to be heard via the press. 🤔
