Dear Mr Smith

               

YOUR FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

 

I refer to your application dated 19 November 2019, in which you seek
access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act) as
follows:

 

“Requesting documents comprising all correspondence between Ramzi Jabbour
and John Lawler re Mohommad Haneef.”

 

Timeframe

 

Your request was received by this agency on 19 November 2019, and the 30
day statutory period for processing your request commenced from that date.
The due date for your request is 19 December 2019.

 

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 email.

 

Disclosure of your Identity

 

Should the AFP be required to consult with third parties in accordance
with the sections 26A, 27 and 27A of the Act, please advise us if you have
any objections to those parties knowing your identity for the purposes of
the consultation.  If we do not receive your consent, we will not disclose
your identity to third parties.

 

Charges

 

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 effective 1 May 2011 and in accordance with section
8(2) of the Act, an agency is required to publish information on the AFP
website following the notification of a decision in respect of a freedom
of information request.  Details of the decision will be published in a
Disclosure Log which can be found at
[1]https://www.afp.gov.au/about-us/informat....

 

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. 

 

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 19
December 2019.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Smith

I refer to your application dated 19 November 2019 in which you seek
access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act)
concerning correspondence between Ramzi Jabbour and John Lawler regarding
Mohammad Haneef.

Upon consideration of your request, the AFP is of the view that your
request will take longer than 30 days to process.  The delay is
regrettable, however, whilst we are completing our clearance processes,
further time is required to finalise the request.  It will not be possible
to complete your request by 19 December 2019. 

Accordingly, pursuant to section 15AA of the Act, I seek your agreement to
extend the period by 21 days to notify you of a decision by 9 January
2020.  The time sought is to finalise your request and taking into account
the AFP is standing down from 25 December 2019 until 1 January 2020
inclusive. 

I would be grateful if you would advise this office in writing of your
agreement to the proposed extension of time. 

Regards,
