I am writing to make a data access request regarding detainees at Castle Peak Bay Immigration Centre (“CIC”). May I know, at the end of each month of each of the years of 2017 – 2020 and 2022 (so far):

A) The detainee population at CIC, broken down by:
I) gender (male, female, transgender),
II) age,
III) nationality (please specify each country),
IV) immigration status (including non-refoulement claimants, overstayers, persons refused entry, and other categories as appropriate)
