When we talk about all these issues the so called mafia and ex icann staff
involvement has always been a question. If the community conflict of
interest has to be clear in all the process of icann isn't there any policy
to hold accountable these people in such regards, because it is not done in
a single decision it is always layers and layers of fabrication that goes
on with definitive and  direct involvement.

> "Donuts Inc., the global leader in next generation top-level domains (TLD)
> and digital identity, today announces that it has entered into an agreement
> to purchase Afilias, Inc. for an undisclosed sum. The transaction, which
> will not include Afilias’ mobile software and registrar businesses, is
> expected to close in Q4 2020, following successful completion of regulatory
> requirements.
> The Afilias registry business features a prominent back-end registry
> platform, DNS solutions and cyber-security expertise. Afilias operates the
> authoritative directories and DNS for over 200 top-level domains. The
> Afilias registry business also includes an impressive array of top-level
> domains such as .info, .global, and .mobi, as well as country codes,
> dotBrands and other generic TLDs.
> “The Afilias and Donuts teams share a commitment to security, stability
> and reliability,” Donuts CEO Akram Atallah commented. “This will only grow
> stronger as we implement the best technologies and services from each
> organization while maintaining seamless delivery to our registry and
> registrar partners as well as our end registrants.”
> The Donuts and Afilias teams will continue to provide registrar partners
> the same access to the domain names and services they’ve had in the past.
> With a combined Donuts and Afilias partnership, cyber-security will be a
> top priority and registrants will have even more simplicity, consistency,
> efficiency and quality to help them secure their online identities."
