Dear Queensland Department of Justice and Attorney-General,

Can you please confirm the current appointment for Mr Gary John Finger, of the Southport Courthouse.

The last public information I have been able to find Queensland Government Gazette 79 states his appointment as a Judicial Registrar for the 17 April 2015 - 16 April 2017.

Is this still the current appointment?

Yours faithfully,

Cherie

Dear Queensland Department of Justice and Attorney-General,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Queensland Department of Justice and Attorney-General's handling of my FOI request 'Appointment details Mr Gary John Finger'.

My request for this information has been refused because 'its private'. I cannot see how the information requested could be considered to be private information.

The request pertains to a Public Official in a position of power in public office. The public is entitled to know the details of appointment of those persons whom are entrusted with the administration of justice.

It is in the public interest to have transparency and be kept informed about these matters so that there can be certainty that these positions are being filled by those who should rightfully be holding them.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/a...

Yours faithfully,

Sam

Good morning Sam

Thank you for your email and your request for internal review of your “FOI request”. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept your request for internal review as the Freedom of Information At 1982 (Cth) does not apply to the Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG) Queensland, as we are a state government agency. The applicable legislation in Queensland is the Right to Information Act 2009 (the RTI Act). When making a request under the RTI Act, there are a number of requirements which need to be met. Under section 24 (2) of the RTI Act, the application must:

•be in the approved form;
•be accompanied by the application fee, under s 24(4) the fee cannot be waived; and
•state whether access to the document is sought for the benefit or use of the applicant, or another entity, and if so the name of the other entity.

Your initial email was treated as a general enquiry as there was no specific reference to legislation or an application in the approved form attached. We are unable to accept your request for internal review as no decision has been made under the RTI Act. I have attached a copy of the approved form to this email should you wish to make a request. Alternatively, you may also choose to make a request via on the online portal at https://www.smartservice.qld.gov.au/serv.... Our apologies that you were not provided with the correct information when you first enquired.

The most recent publically available information on Mr Gary John Finger’s appointment was published in the Queensland Government Gazette on Friday 22 June 2018 (https://publications.qld.gov.au/dataset/.... Mr Finger was appointed to act as a magistrate on and from 1 July 2018 to and including 30 June 2020. The information is located on page 409.

I hope this information is of assistance. Please let me know if you require further clarification or additional information.

Kind regards

Carly
