Why is AFRINIC involved in litigation?
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
A complete summary is available here https://www.afrinic.net/20210727-ceo-addresses-freezing-of-afrinic-financial-accounts.
A frozen bank account poses a risk to AFRINIC’s operations. Additionally, AFRINIC staff are still working, and they have families and other real-world expenses to manage, and will have income whilst AFRINIC’s accounts are frozen.
What about the NRO continuity fund?
The NRO continuity fund is available specifically to ensure registry and PDP support. But the AFRINIC team is so much more than just the registry and PDP. It is grossly unfair to have to exclude the rest of the team that also work hard at AFRINIC. This is also an opportunity for the Internet to particularly those of us that work closely with AFRINIC to show our own individual support.
Why is AFRINIC not doing this themselves?
AFRINIC has no access to funding that it may receive directly. Although you may make deposits into the AFRINIC’s banking accounts (as some new members are doing) AFRINIC can not draw on those resources because of the current status quo. As a result Af-IX and partners are taking it upon ourselves to front-end the funding experience for AFRINIC.
Why am I being redirected to a TESPOK website?
TESPOK has kindly agreed to be the administrative front-end for this process. With more than 20 years of professional service to the regional internet community. Kenya is one of the countries that offers a suitable environment for the proposed financial transactions, with the ability to quickly have the required system in place.
How will the funds be disbursed?
TESPOK will reach out to AFRINIC to request for details of pending payments, to which AFRINIC will submit funding request to us for all expenses which they deem critical.The request shall be made via e-mail and shall include the following details:i. Email with the subject: Request for Payment to the TESPOK finance email
ii. Attachment of invoice clearly stating Payee name with clear contact information: physical address; postal address; payee telephone number
iii. Bank account details: Bank Name, Branch, Account Number, IBAN Number, Intermediary Bank if required, SWIFT code, Sort Code, Routing Number (depending on jurisdiction receiving requirements)
iv. Copies of all transactions incoming and outgoing will be accessible via a report on the fundraising site.
How will you ensure appropriate auditing is in place?i. Maintenance of proper books of accounts with records of all transactions incoming and outgoing
ii. Internal audit checks and controls will be established
Will the funds collected be safe from attacks similar to the one launched at Afrinic via the Mauritian legal system?Kenya is a signatory to the Geneva Convention* and has established statutes over the years that recognise and provide appropriate protection to international and regional entities that are both government in nature and Non-government organisations. AFRINIC, though not established in Kenya, runs critical operations with an impact that goes beyond any individual country in the African region. The donation funds being collected to keep AFRINIC's critical operations running are protected under these statutes.
How will the community be informed about the amounts donated and disbursed?TESPOK will publish the total amount donated from both individuals and corporates and the total amount disbursed on the donation web page every 2 days.The names of individual donors will not be published to align with the Kenya Data Protection Act of 2019.
