I don't know how the AFP can claim they never received a request, as they sent an auto-reply back!

Right to Know can confirm that all the messages were accepted by AFP servers, and the auto-replies were automatically published.

Thanks Ben

The Australian Federal Police seem to want to avoid complying with their obligations under the FOI Act.

I will resubmit
