Refugee crime statistics for Tuen Mun District

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hong Kong Police Force Tuen Mun 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 Tuen Mun district 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 have a breakdown of prosecution and conviction rates that would be useful too. Plus 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.

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

Dear Chloe/Hong Kong Police Force Tuen Mun District,

Many thanks for getting back to me. If you don't have statistics for non-refoulement claiments then do you have statistics on arrests of recognisance or form 8 holders over the same time period?

Yours faithfully,
