Refugee crime statistics for Lantau District

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hong Kong Police Force Lantau 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 your district to put this information into context. If you have a breakdown of prosecution and conviction rates that would be useful too. And a breakdown on what the crimes were for - how many of the refugee arrests were for immigration related offences, how many employment offences, and how many for violent crimes.

On top of total numbers, if you have the nationalities of the refugees arrested that information would be useful as well. 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, or emailing other files to me (I can provide an email address) would work best in this case.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds

Hong Kong Police Force Lantau District

Dear Mr. Edmunds,

Your application has been referred to me for a reply.  Regret to inform
you that our District do not have the data on whether an arrested person
is a non-refoulement claimant or not.  We are thus unable to provide you
with the requested statistics, please.  

Regards,

Thanks for getting back to me. If you don't have statistics on non-refoulement claimant arrests, do you have arrest figures for recognicance or form 8 holders? I also asked for general arrest statistics, so what are the total number of arrests for you district over each year until 2005?
