From: Elin Eriksson


Dear Department of Immigration and Border Protection,

This Freedom of Information request requires the average length of
people being held in any kind of immigration detention centre of facility in Australia for the years 2000-2014.

I would also like to know for how long the person who have been
kept for the longest time in detention for every year
2000-2014. In other words, example: The year 2000, who had been kept in immigration detention for the longest time and for how long had he or she been in detention (without telling any personal information, just the length).

Yours faithfully,
Elin Eriksson
