Refugee crime statistics for HK Island Region

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hong Kong Police Force Hong Kong Island Region,

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

1. The most complete yearly statistics of refugee arrests from Kowloon East Region for every full year you have data going back to 2005, plus 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, 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
