Probably depends on policing...

If your local cop shop can’t be bothered to take your complaint - as fully documented as it may be - to a prosecutor, and the hosting company redirects their postmaster and noc emails to /dev/null, you are basically stuffed until a public prosecutor decides to take action and seize their assets for analysis and freeze their peering agreements. How long will it take for your complaint to the police or direct to the public prosecutors office to go from level 1 to level 4 where the action happens ? Not quick, and a lot of duplicate requests come in may case the escalation to go faster, but noncertainty on that...
