Cloud Innovation your employer is in the business of leasing IPv4 addresses
in Asia, USA and Europe etc.

AFRINIC has never permitted this and Ashil from AFRINIC publicly stated as
such in the below archived thread.

You always claim policy blah blah blah in your defence of Cloud Innovation
Ltd and Larus business model.

But there it is. AFRINIC has never approved any IPv4 space for purposes of
leasing them for money as through they were a product.
