Documents on Wikileaks, its Australian staff, and Julian Assange.

Snehan Kekre made this Freedom of Information request to CrimTrac

CrimTrac did not have the information requested.

From: Snehan Kekre

Delivered

Dear CrimTrac,

I hereby request access, under the Freedom of Information Act 1982, to:

Documents authored by CrimTrac and received by CrimTrac mentioning or regarding the not-for-profit media organization WikiLeaks or its Australian staff, including but not limited to Julian Assange, and excluding duplicates of documents and drafts. The specific time period I am requesting for is January 2015 through May 2018.

Also, with the exception of WikiLeaks staff, I would be happy to exclude the personal information of any individuals contained in the documents, from the scope of my request. Additionally, I wish to exclude documents which are already publicly known or accessible.

I suggest these exclusions to make the process more practical. Namely, I believe that the work in processing this request (as currently worded) would not substantially nor unreasonably divert the resources of the agency from its other operations.

For reference, I have included a link to the WikiLeaks website:

https://www.wikileaks.org

I request that all costs for all aspects of the processing of this request be waived on the grounds that the release of this information is in the public interest.

If you can release via administrative access, please do, otherwise, treat this as an FOI request.

Yours sincerely,

Snehan Kekre

Dear Mr Kekre,

 

I refer to my attached correspondence dated 4 September 2018 regarding
your requests for documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982
(Cth).

 

I inadvertently emailed you a copy of an internal email chain when I sent
you a copy of this decision letter.

 

This email chain includes staff names and phone numbers. I note that this
has been published on the website:
[1]https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/d...

 

I am writing to request that you remove the internal email chain from the
website. There is no difficulty with the publication of the decision
letter.

 

Thank you,

 

Melanie Moss
