You still don't understand what are the "elements" of a crime of
fraud, even though the code explicitly state:

      (1)  A person is guilty of an offence if
          (a)  the person, by a deception, dishonestly obtains
          a financial advantage from another person; and

which means prosecutors must prove existence of "financial
advantage" in court with evidences even if you think it obvious.

For the purpose of criminal prosecution, it is enough if someone
in APNIC, Merit, FDCservers or Cogent is deceived.

As, according to you, false route is actually advertised, someone
should be deceived.

I'm afraid code more useful to a person living in Zambia is that
of Zambia. Anyway, in any country where registration fraud of
real estate is criminal, which practically means in all the
countries, registration fraud of IPv4 address is criminal.

A problem, however, is that prosecution in Zambia or Mauritius may
not be very effective to a person living in Israel.

Anyway, as accusation is free, you may try.
