Dear Australian Federal Police,

Under Freedom fo Information I request the following:

"Ministerial briefings concerning the number of illegal or irregular immigrants who have been prevented from boarding boats from Indonesia to Australia."

Please limit this request to 2000 to 2017.

As an example, the 2000/2001 AFP Annual Report says that:

"In excess of 3,000 persons suspected of intending to enter Australia illegally have been arrested by the Indonesian authorities since cooperative arrangements were implemented in relation to people smuggling with the INP in February 2000."

The 2008/09 Annual Report says that:

"more than 800 people suspected of trying to reach Australia illegally were detained"

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Asher Hirsch
