Dear Mr Smith

 

Thank you for your email 4 February 2016. Unfortunately, we can only
process requests for access to documents held by the Commonwealth
Attorney-General’s Department. You have sought access to documents held by
another agency.

 

The Australian Security Intelligence Agency (ASIO) and documents that
originated with ASIO are exempt from the operation of the Freedom of
Information Act 1982 (see section 7). 

 

ASIO records can be accessed in accordance with the Archives Act 1983
through the National Archives of Australia.  All applications for access
under the Archives Act must be made through the National Archives – more
information about how to do this is available on the National Archives
website at [1]http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/fact-sh... .

 

Information about accessing ASIO records at the National Archives can be
found online at [2]http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/a-z/asi....

 

Kind Regards

 

Margarita
