Court Update - Cloud Innovation Ltd vs AFRINIC (SCR 5C/30/21)

Published On -


Dear Colleagues,


I am pleased to share with you the ruling delivered yesterday, 14 February 2022, in the appeal case ref Cloud Innovation Ltd vs African Network Information Centre (AfriNIC) Ltd.

This case was filed in response to a letter that AFRINIC sent to Cloud Innovation Ltd dated 10 March 2021 pursuant to the provisions of the Registration Service Agreement (RSA) whereby AFRINIC contended that Cloud Innovation Ltd was, and continues to be, in breach of the RSA.

This appeal stems from Cloud Innovation Ltd’s application for Interim Injunction, which was initially granted in its favour on 29 March 2021, but then set aside by the Honourable Judge in Chambers on 07 July 2021. Cloud Innovation Ltd had appealed against that judgement, and the hearing took place on 27 January 2022.

To put it simply, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of Mauritius has, after having considered the arguments from both sides, dismissed the appeal. In other words, AFRINIC has won this appeal.

No doubt, this is an essential milestone for AFRINIC, and we wish to thank the team and our stakeholders for their continued support.


Kind Regards,


Eddy Kayihura,
Chief Executive Officer,
African Network Information Centre (AFRINIC)
