Compliance with humanitarian assistance/Alternative to Detention Programme

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Security Bureau should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Security Bureau,

I am writing to request the rate of compliance with the humanitarian assistance/Alternative to Detention Programme that is provided by International Social Services to non-refoulement claimants. May I know,

1) In each of the years between 2010 – 2020, what percentage of claimants receiving humanitarian assistance absconded from the Alternative to Detention Programme in each year?

2) How is “absconding” defined by the Security Bureau in this context?

If a CSV or Excel format is possible, I would greatly appreciate it.

Yours faithfully,

Surabhi Chopra
