Dear Hong Kong Police Force Eastern District,

Can you please provide data on arrest statistics of refugees (non-refoulement claimants). Specifically I would like the most complete yearly statistics of refugee arrests from your district for every full year you have data going back to 2005, plus total arrest statistics from the same time period to put it into context. If you have a breakdown of prosecution and conviction rates that would be useful too.

On top of total numbers, if you have the nationalities of the refugees arrested that information please provide that information. I’m happy to take digital files if that’s easier, but please don’t send this information in tabular form in the email as I can’t view it. Attaching a PDF works, or if you want to email other files I can provide an email address.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds

Hong Kong Police Force Eastern District

Dear Hong Kong Police Force Eastern District,

Can I just confirm, but are you saying you have no arrest statistics whatsoever from your district, or you just don't have statistics for refugees/non-refoulement claimants? I would like total arrest statistics from your district over recent years. Plus, if you don't have data on non-refoulement claimants, then do you have data on Recognizance (or Form 8) holders?

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds

Hong Kong Police Force Eastern District
