        What I understand is that he is clamming that the registration of this prefix was hijacked from him.

        But honestly I do not what the problem is. Any how, it won't be solved here.

And that will do what exactly?

Back when I worked at an RIR, a prefix was "misplaced".  When I contacted the (country monopoly PTT) ISP and told 
them the prefix had been removed from APNIC's database and should not be routed.  Their response was "We have a 
contract with the customer for connectivity.  We do not have a contract with you." and I was encouraged to get the 
customer to voluntarily withdraw the prefix.

If BGPSEC+RPKI were deployed, there might be something active the RIRs could do.  However, this has its own 
implications regarding centralized control of the routing system (as discussed, ironically enough, in the RIPE 
region).  And this is going to get much more 'interesting' as the IPv4 free pool exhausts and the market moves from 
black to grey or white.  Fun times ahead.
