Good morning Mr Sweeney,

 

Your Freedom of Information Request

 

I refer to your application emailed 21 July 2017, in which you seek access
to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act) as
follows:

 

“a copy of a letter dated 19 May 2017  and a copy of a letter dated 30 May
2017 that were referred to in a letter from the AFP dated 20 July 2017
bearing the signature of Peter Crozier, Manager Criminal Assets, Fraud &
Anti-Corruption, Organised Crime and Cyber.”

 

Information considered irrelevant to the scope of your request

 

The AFP, in its management of FOI requests, excludes the following
information on the basis that is irrelevant to the scope of a request:

 

-      Names of AFP members, other than the Senior Executive.

-      Direct telephone numbers, signatures and mobile telephone numbers
of AFP members.

-      Duplicate documents, including duplicate emails.  The AFP will only
provide emails where they form a final email chain and the
authors/recipients are contained within the final email. 

-      Information that is publicly available, for example, newspaper
articles, online publications including information available on the AFP
Information Publication Scheme and the AFP disclosure log.

 

If you object to the AFP excluding any of the above information, please
advise this office within seven days of receipt of this letter.

 

Your request was received by this agency on 21 July 2017 and the 30 day
statutory period for processing your request commenced from that date.

 

You will be notified of any charges in accordance with the Freedom of
Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations, should they apply, in relation
to your request as soon as practicable. 

Disclosure Log

 

Please be advised that in accordance with section 11C of the Act, an
agency is required to publish information on their website following the
notification of a decision in respect of a freedom of information
request. 

 

The requirement to publish information released under FOI reinforces the
objectives of the FOI Act to promote a pro-disclosure culture across
government and to increase recognition that information held by government
is a national resource.  Exceptions to the requirement to publish
information would apply to personal information and information concerning
the business affairs of a person if it was considered ‘unreasonable’ to do
so.  Details of the decision may be published in a Disclosure Log which
can be found at
[1]https://www.afp.gov.au/about-us/informat....
Publication will be made in accordance with timeframes stipulated in
section 11C of the Act.

 

If, however, after noting the above, you wish to raise any concerns about
the publication of information concerning your request prior to the
notification of a decision, please advise this office in writing before 20
August 2017.  If you do not raise any concerns prior to the date of the
decision, the AFP will publish the information as notified to you in the
decision.

Dear Australian Federal Police,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Australian Federal Police's handling of my FOI request 'Correspondence with Commissioner Colvin'.

I am seeking an internal review of the extent of redaction in the letter from Mr Davidson from the Treasury to Commissioner Colvin dated 30 May 2017.

I believe the extent of redaction was excessive and more limited redaction was required.

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

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
