I request access to the following documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982:

1. The ABC's social media policy.

2. Any documents containing the word "WhatsApp" that are relevant to the above matters, for the period 1 December 2023 to 19 January 2024. If any documents are considered out of scope (not relevant to the above matters), I request the creation of a document under section 17 listing their titles.

3. Documents containing the words "Human Rights Watch" or abbreviations such as "HRW" for the period 1 December 2023 to 19 January 2024.

4. Documents containing the words "Lawyers for Israel" for the period 7 October 2023 to 19 January 2024.

5. Letters received by the ABC calling for Ms Lattouf's dismissal and any related correspondence, for the period 7 October 2023 to 19 January 2024. This includes any prior dealings with these individuals.

6. Complaints regarding Ms Lattouf from the Executive Council of Australian Jewry (ECAJ) for the period 7 October 2023 to 19 January 2024.
