According to a legal memo in the Snowden documents, GCHQ will break international law as long as it's "acceptable among the 5-eyes community."

Hello JM,

As a member of the Right to Know community, I would like to point out that, setting aside any technical issues with your request, ASIO are not subject to the FOI Act and are unlikely to respond to your request.

Section 7 of the FOI Act sets out the exemptions from the FOI Act, and any document that originates with ASIO is exempt from the operation of the Act. Accordingly, your request is unlikely to ever be responded to.

Good luck.

James
