Dear Immigration Department,

I am writing to make a data access request about the gender of detainees at Mau Tau Kok Detention Centre. May I know, for the years 2018-2020:

a) the detainee population on 31 December of each year, broken down according to gender (men and women)

If a CSV or Excel format is possible, I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise PDF or similar would be fine as well.

Yours faithfully,

Surabhi Chopra
