Request for mobile communications via mobile applications

Ben Fairless made this Freedom of Information request to Minister for Human Services

Minister for Human Services did not have the information requested.

From: Ben Fairless

Delivered

Dear Minister for Human Services,

Can you please provide a copy of all inbound and outbound chats in the 7 days prior to this request that was sent or received from the minister using any of the below applications:
- WhatsApp
- Facebook Messneger
- Signal
- Telegram
- Grindr
- Scruff
- Tinder
- Email Accounts without a .gov.au email address?

Please initially process these requests informally. I understand the AG advised the senate that the communications were "trivial" so I don't anticipate any exemptions being applied. If the request can't be processed informally, please treat it as a formal FOI request.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Fairless

Dear FOI.LEGAL.TEAM,

I intend to make a request for IC review of this decision, however before I do that could you clarify if the minister's devices were searched as well as those of staff within his office?
