European Joint Initiative on Internet Counter Terrorism (EJI-ICT)

Rejo Zenger made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Federal Police

Australian Federal Police did not have the information requested.

From: Rejo Zenger

Delivered

Dear Australian Federal Police,

I would like to request under the Freedom of Information Act copies of all documents on the project "European Joint Initiative on Internet Counter Terrorism (EJI-ICT)".

The project is described as follows: "The EJI – ICT, supported strongly by the UK, aims to reduce illegal terrorist content on the Internet by increasing cooperation between Member States. The EJI-ICT has set up a network of national focal points. This network focuses on joint work on cooperation with social media companies and analysis of existing legal frameworks. Currently 16 EU Member States are involved in the EJI-ICT."

The document describes the involvement of European countries as well as other. The document also mentions the involvement of country designated as AU. This may refer to Austria, but may as well refer to Australia. Hence this request.

Thanks in advance for making public any relevant document you have.

Yours faithfully,

Rejo Zenger, Freedom Inc
Nachtwachtlaan 114
1058 ED AMSTERDAM

Dear Mr Zenger,

         

Your Freedom of Information Request – CRM 2016/227

 

I refer to your application dated 6 November 2015 in which you seek access
to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act).

 

 

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 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 6 November 2015 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. 

 

 

Information Publication Scheme

 

Please be advised that in accordance with section 8(2) 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]http://www.afp.gov.au/about-the-afp/info....

 

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 6
December .  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.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI,

Thanks a lot for your swift response. As I understand it, you are not disclosing any documents. However, the reason for not doing so is not clear to me. Could you please clarify your denial?

Is it that you don't have any documents regarding the project 'European Joint Initiative on Internet Counter Terrorism (EJI-ICT)' available, or is it that you do have documents but you are denying to make them public? If the latter is the case, what are the grounds for denying? Do apply all four bullet points integral to all available documents, or only some or just one of them.

Thanks in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Rejo Zenger
