They probably aren't keeping their RIPE details up to date ...
In any case, you obviously didn't try very hard to contact them, as they are
publishing full contact details on their site:

Subject: [anti-spam-wg] Non-cooperation of RIPE ISP in investigating report
of email abuse (spam)
I'm attempting to report an instance of spam originating from the IP
188.8.131.52 . The RIPE database indicates that the proper venue for this
report is abuse@localhost . However, the server at that address
rejects with the admonition, "You are not allowed to send emails!"
(Diagnostic code: smtp;550 5.7.1). The hostmaster gives the same reply.
I'm fairly new to investigating spam, being recently inspired by a few
prodigious spammers that flood my inbox daily with repetitive invitations.
Among these is US Pharmacy, which somehow causes its unwanted blandishments
to be sent to me from networks all over the world, including the above ISP.
I'm not sure how this is accomplished, but I suspect a virus of some sort
infects the sending computer which allows it to be controlled remotely.
