Dear Hong Kong Police Force Crime Wing,

Can you please provide data on arrest statistics of refugees (non-refoulement claimants). Specifically I would like:

1. The most complete and recent yearly statistics of refugee arrests from the whole Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and your total arrest statistics from the same time period to put that data into into context. If you don't have data from non-refoulement claimants, then Recognisance/Form 8 holder data will do.

2. From this data, if you have breakdowns on how many of the refugees were arrested for immigration offences, employment offences, and violent crimes, that will be helpful as well.

3.. If you have a breakdown of prosecution and conviction rates that would be useful too.

4. On top of total numbers, if you have the nationalities of the refugees arrested that information would be useful as well.

For all of this I’m happy to take digital files if that’s easier. Attaching a PDF, or emailing other files to me (I can provide an email address ) would work best in this case.

Yours faithfully,
Aung Kaung Myat

Dear Mr. Aung Kaung Myat,
                                                       
        I refer to your enquiry dated 20 April 2017 requesting for the
crime statistics involving refugees (non-refoulement claimants) and our
interim reply dated 28 April 2017.  I attach the total number of persons
arrested for crime from 2013 to 2016 and the number of non-ethnic Chinese
recognizance holders arrested for specific crime from 2013 to 2016 for
your perusal, please.  You may also wish to note that the latter
statistics has been kept by the Police since 2013.

2.        For the number of non-ethnic Chinese recognizance holders
arrested by nationalities and the breakdown on prosecution and conviction
rates, I am sorry to inform you that the Police do not maintain the
requested statistics.

3.        For enquiry, please contact me at 852-2860 8156.

Yours faithfully,
Ms Shirley HO
Crime Wing Access to Information Officer
