RIPE NCC can't withdraw any prefixes. They can do de-registration. In this
case it will not lead to withdraw, as it is announced without any honor to
RIPE Database, like Routing Registry. So it will be changed from hijacked
company prefix to hijacked unused prefix, with the same result - mass
spamming from it.
