SVG and Queensland Police Service
(2001 S0263, 30 May 2002) 

The applicant had complained to the QPS about her treatment in the course of an investigation. She sought access to a copy of the report prepared in response to her complaint, and the appendices to that report. 

Assistant Commissioner Shoyer decided that all of the matter to which the applicant had been refused access comprised information concerning the personal affairs of other individuals.  He also found that the public interest in the applicant being informed about the QPS's handling of the matter had been satisfied by the extent of the information disclosed to her by the QPS, and decided that the matter remaining in issue qualified for exemption under s.44(1) of the FOI Act.
