Letter of appeal to the Australian Information Commissioner:
CC - Every member of the Scottish Parliament
On the 8th of October 2004, Qantas Airlines illegally carried unscreened luggage, and on 13 December 2011, I put in a Freedom of Information application to Australia's Office of Transport Security, relating to that horrific breach. I also note we have just passed the 23rd anniversary of the Lockerbie disaster, and I watched this National Geographic programme about it yesterday evening.
However, in their infinite wisdom, that department has decided the information I'm seeking "Is not in the public interest," and has thus decided to impose a fee of over $1,200 on an ordinary member of the public (me), who is trying to access it. Here is their email to me, and here is their letter. I am appealing that decision with you, on the grounds that information is manifestly "In the public interest" - and I very much think the families of the 270 victims of the Lockerbie disaster (and every other reasonable person reading this), would agree with me.
