Refugee crime statistics for Western District

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hong Kong Police Force Western District,

Can you please provide data on arrest statistics of refugees (non-refoulement claimants). Specifically I would like the most complete yearly statistics of refugees 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 please provide that information. I’m happy to take digital files if that’s easier, but please attach PDFs as I can't view information in tabular form in the email .

Yours sincerely,

Scott Edmunds

Dear Mr Scott Edmunds,

I refer to your application for refugee crime statistics for WDIST dated
2016-09-18.

Please be informed that we do not have information on crime statistics
relating to refugees.

As Refugees (non-refoulement claimants) are processed by the Immigration
Department, your application may need to refer to the Immigration
Department for follow up. According to para. 1.14 of the Code on Access to
Information, " consent from the applicant should preferably be sought
before transferring his request to the department concerned ", therefore I
should be grateful if you would give us your consent before the
transferral.

Should you have any enquiries, please call me on 3660-6609 or by email:
[Hong Kong Police Force Western District request email]

Thank you very much for your attention.

Best Regards,
Ms Kina LEE

Police District, their nationalities and the total arrest statistics in the
