Phillip Sweeney

Dear Australian Federal Police,

In 2016 information was provided to the Australian Federal Police about a "Serous Financial Crime".

Julie Drummond was the AFP representative on the 'Serious Financial Crime Taskforce' at the time.

Since 2016 further evidence has come to hand that might confirm that Julie Drummond failed to exhibit the professionalism expected of a senior member of the Australian Federal Police.

The document I am seeking is a copy of a letter dated 22 August 2016 { AFP Ref: PROMIS 5981669) from Julie Drummond to Phillip Sweeney.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
