Dear Australian Federal Police, a complaint against Federal Attorney George Brandis was lodged with you in 2014-2015, and yet you have failed to reply.
Is it your intention to allow the Federal Attorney General and others, to continue to pervert the administration of justice?
And would it be direct and or INDIRECT discrimination pursuant to the RDA 1975 (Cth)?
The AFP has the jurisdiction to investigate, Commonwealth crimes (sometimes called federal crimes) and crimes that take place in the Australian Capital Territory.
What is a Commonwealth crime?
Commonwealth crimes are crimes that fall within the law-making responsibilities of the Australian government (sometimes called the Federal government).
State and Territory crimes are crimes that fall within the law-making responsibilities of State and Territory governments.
Knowing which crimes are Commonwealth and which are not can be confusing and complex. Below are some examples:
Examples of Commonwealth crimes – report these to the AFP
Aircraft, airport and aviation crimes
Child sex offences by Australians in foreign countries
Cybercrime committed against Commonwealth Government departments or information systems of national significance
Drug importation and exportation
Human Trafficking – including trafficking for slavery, organ harvesting, sexual, domestic and/or labour servitude and forced marriage
Online Child Exploitation (child abuse material)
Fraud against the Commonwealth government
Theft from the Commonwealth government
Assault on a Commonwealth official
Threats against a Commonwealth official
Examples of State or Territory crimes – report these to your local police
Cybercrime – including online fraud, such as eBay, and internet scams
Drugs – drug dealers and drug users
Fraud – including online and overseas frauds and scams
Rape or sexual assault
Stalking – including online stalking
Theft – including theft of mail once delivered
Threats – including threats by phone, email, social networking sites, forums etc
Go to the ACT Policing website to find more information about crimes that take place in the ACT.
Commonwealth crimes which the AFP investigates
The AFP carefully considers all reports of Commonwealth crimes, however we do not have the resources to investigate every reported crime. We have to ensure we allocate our resources to the crimes which have the greatest impact to Australian society. The AFP’s priorities are published on our web-site in our Case Categorisation and Prioritisation Model (CCPM). Visit How the CCPM is applied to read about how we make our decisions.
What the AFP does not investigate
The AFP does not investigate:
Civil matters. This includes:
breach of contract
faulty goods or services
State or Territory crimes – even when the crimes have occurred in more than one State or Territory, or where the suspects live in foreign countries – these are still the responsibility of State or Territory police who can seek assistance from interstate or foreign law enforcement as appropriate. In order to refer an investigation to a foreign law enforcement agency it is necessary to report the matter to your local State or Territory police. Once your local police have exhausted all possible avenues within Australia they can refer the investigation overseas using Interpol Canberra. Members of the public cannot report crimes directly to Interpol or foreign law enforcement. You must report crimes to your local police first.
Some types of Commonwealth crimes unless they have been reported to the responsible Australian Government department or agency first. These include:
Crimes against an Australian agency or department, such as fraud against that agency or department
When another agency or department has the expertise to assess the crime themselves.
The table below lists some common complaints and crimes and shows you where you should report them.
