Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, National Indigenous Australians Agency should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear National Indigenous Australians Agency,
I would like access to all documentations on The Fremantle massacre led by Captain Irwin in 1830

Yours faithfully,
Jayda Abraham

FOI NIAA, National Indigenous Australians Agency

Dear Jayda,

I refer to your request to the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) on 7 November 2019 under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth )(FOI Act) for access to the following:

"all documentations on The Fremantle massacre led by Captain Irwin in 1830"

Transfer under section 16 of the FOI Act
As the subject matter of the documents sought relate more closely to the functions and responsibilities of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), your request has been transferred in full under section 16(1)(b) of the FOI Act.

AIATSIS will liaise you further in relation to your request.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,
