Dear Ms Wolf

 

Re: Your Freedom of Information request

 

I am writing to inform you that I have been appointed as the authorised
decision maker for your FOI request, seeking access to:

 

CCTV footage or body worn cameras from any premises either run by or
otherwise provided to or managed under contract on behalf of the
Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) or any other
government department that reports to or is otherwise related to DIBP on
Nauru from 17 to 20 July, 2013.

As part of the department’s FOI service standard, I will update you every
14 days regarding the progress of your request, however please do not
hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

 

The current due date for your request under the FOI Act is Tuesday, 22
April 2014.  

Due to the number of requests currently being processed by our office, the
fact that this matter was only allocated to me today and the upcoming
public holidays, it is unlikely that I will be able to finalise your
request by the original due date. 

I therefore seek your agreement (under s.15AA of the FOI Act) to extend
the timeframe for the processing of your request by 30 days.  This would
extend the due date for your request to Thursday, 22 May 2014.

Please advise by close of business Friday, 11 April 2014 whether you agree
to this request for an extension of time.

Yours sincerely

Marianne Nolte-Crimp

Dear Ms Wolf

 

This email refers to your FOI request received on 23 March 2014 seeking
access to:

 

CCTV footage or body worn cameras from any premises either run by or
otherwise provided to or managed under contract on behalf of the
Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) or any other
government department that reports to or is otherwise related to DIBP on
Nauru from 17 to 20 July, 2013.

The current due date for your FOI request is Tuesday, 22 April 2014.

 

The purpose of this email is to advise you (as required under s.24AB of
the FOI Act) that I consider a 'practical refusal reason' exists under
s.24AA of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) in relation to
your request.  I have set out my reasons in the attached notice. 

 

The FOI Act requires that you respond to this notice before the end of the
consultation period, which is close of business Australian Eastern
Standard Time (AEST) Friday, 25 April 2014. However as this is a public
holiday, the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 provides that the latest date
you may respond is the next working day, which is Monday, 28 April 2014.

As advised in the notice, you may reply to me at this email address
([1][DIBP request email]).

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Ms Wolf

 

Thank you for your FOI request received on 23 March 2014 for:

… CCTV footage or body worn cameras from any premises either run by or
otherwise provided to or managed under contract on behalf of the
Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) or any other
government department that reports to or is otherwise related to DIBP on
Nauru from 17 to 20 July, 2013.

Purpose of this email

 

I am writing to you about the s.24AB notice that I sent to you on 11 April
2014. The consultation period under the FOI Act expired at close of
business on Monday, 28 April 2014. As you did not respond to me by the end
of the consultation period, your request is now deemed to be withdrawn as
at close of business on the last day of the consultation period, which was
Monday, 28 April 2014.

 

The attached notice provides more detail.

 

Sincerely
