Dear Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority,

I am seeking the following documents under the Freedom Of
information Act 1982 as a Journalism student currently studying at
Macleay College in regards to the banned peptides Thomas and Keefe from the Collingwood Football Club were found guilty to have taken on the 10th of February 2015.

1. Any documents regarding the restaurant they were claimed to have had their 'meat' drugged with clenbuterol.

2. Any images or videos regarding the actions of Thomas and Keefe in relation to taking the banned peptide intentionally.

Yours faithfully,

Anthony Johnston

Dear Mr Johnston,

 

I refer to your email of Monday, 5 October 2015, in which you sought
access to:

 

“I am seeking the following documents under the Freedom Of information Act
1982 as a Journalism student currently studying at Macleay College in
regards to the banned peptides Thomas and Keefe from the Collingwood
Football Club were found guilty to have taken on the 10th of February
2015.

 

1. Any documents regarding the restaurant they were claimed to have had
their 'meat' drugged with clenbuterol.

 

2. Any images or videos regarding the actions of Thomas and Keefe in
relation to taking the banned peptide intentionally.”

 

Prior to being in a position to acknowledge your request, I need to
clarify with you the specific documents you require.  I note that you
refer to “the banned peptides Thomas and Keefe from the Collingwood
Football Club were found guilty to have taken”.  I note that Clenbuterol
is not a peptide, it is a beta-2 agonist.  See here:
[1]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clenbutero... I also note that it is
listed as an “Other Anabolic Agent” on the WADA Prohibited List 2015
(available here:
[2]http://list.wada-ama.org/prohibited-all-...
  As such, should these references to peptides in your request be
references to clenbuterol?

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Kind regards

Dear Mr Johnson,

 

I refer to our email of 15 October 2015 seeking clarification of the
documents you were seeking under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth)
(FOI Act). 

 

In order for your request to be valid, it must (amongst other things)
provide such information concerning the document as is reasonably
necessary to enable a responsible officer of the agency to identify it
(subsection 15(2)(b) of the FOI Act). You have not responded to our email
and we do not consider that your original request provides sufficient
clarity to enable us to identify the documents you seek.  Accordingly,
pursuant to section 15 of the FOI Act, your request is not valid and we
will not process it.

 

You are of course welcome to submit a new FOI Application. However, should
you choose to do so, we will treat that application as a new request and
process it accordingly.

 

If you require any further clarification, please do not hesitate to
contact me.

 

Regards,

 

Emily Fitton
