Dear Faustus,

         

Your Freedom of Information Request

 

I refer to your application dated 14 December 2016 in which you seek
access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act) as
follows:

 

The number of security incidents occurring on 13/08/2007 on the grounds of
Parliament House involving any individuals who were dressed in a loin
cloth  OR dispersed white powders OR whose vehicle contained materials
arranged in a manner visually reminiscent of a terrorist attack.

If more than zero, then for each discrete incident on record I humbly
request:

1) Time of incident

2) Incident report number

3) Results of any analyses, forensic or otherwise, identifying the
composition of any items seized during the incident

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 letter.

 

Your request was received by this agency on 14 December 2016 and the 30
day statutory period for processing your request commenced from that date.

 

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. 

 

Disclosure Log

Please be advised that in accordance with section 11C of the Act, an
agency is required to publish information on their website following the
notification of a decision in respect of a freedom of information
request. 

 

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.  Details of the decision may be published in a Disclosure Log which
can be found at
[1]https://www.afp.gov.au/about-us/informat....
Publication will be made in accordance with timeframes stipulated in
section 11C of the Act.

 

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 13
January 2016.  If you do not raise any concerns prior to the date of the
decision, the AFP will publish the information as notified to you in the
decision.

Please note the AFP Freedom of Information office will be closed from 24
December 2016 to 2 January 2017 inclusive. The office will reopen on 3
January 2017.

Yours sincerely
