Hi

s47F

Part One: On 11 July 2012, DIAC (Kaniva and Marama mailboxes) received the below information s47F from AMSA. In summary, contacted AMSA seeking information about five family members who had been at sea for more than 10 days (as at 11 July). This information was initially entered onto the possible missing persons from Kaniva spreadsheet, however the entries have now been separated from this spreadsheet as we (IAS) believe they were not on either the Kaniva or Marama vessels. Due to the amount of contacts we have received about the Kaniva boat, this information was not processed until mid last week. We have checked DIAC holdings for the below names and have found no close or near matches. Kind Regards,

hope you can assist, or point me in the right direction I met with s47F and a number of board members from the Mandean Australian Community Cultural Club yesterday. The meeting was an opportunity for them to flag with us the plight of Mandeans in Syria. However, one of the matters raised related to a claim that up to 30 Mandeans boarded a boat which left Indonesia on 30 June. They have not been heard from since. Attached is a list which names 8 of them. The Mandean community would like to have confirmation of their arrival. If they did not arrive the community will then pursue the possibility that they may have been arrested and are held in Indonesia. If we are able to confirm, are we then able to reach out to them (ie CMs) and give them the communities contact details (which I can provide) as they wish to support them whilst in detention, and after if they are released to the community
s47F

said that they may have only identified themselves as Christians or Baptists, rather than Mandeans to DIAC

Hi

s47F

Over the last few days DIAC has received several enquiries regarding the whereabouts of several Palestinians who were believed to have departed Indonesia on a boat somewhere between 28 and 30 June, with approximately 28 people on board. IAS has checked DIAC holdings and found no name matches for the twelve names provided below. We would appreciate it if you could pass these names to UNHCR and IOM to see if the below are known to their organisations.

Once agencies have confirmed these details have been shared with s47E(d) and Immigrasi, UNHCR and IOM (by DIAC) we will include a line in the MINSUB stating approximately "details of enquiries have been passed from Australian agencies to their Indonesian counterparts including s47E(d) Immigrasi and also to UNHCR and IOM." I have attached an unclassified version of the AFP report relating to this issue for DIAC information.

Good afternoon, AFP - thankyou for IR s47E(d) (Missing asylum seekers - June 2012) that was received today.

With regards to the Reporting Officer Comments, can you please advise if the names were passed to DIAC for checking against the master nominal roll? Additionally, can you please go back to the source to determine if they have any photos of the alleged missing persons so that DIAC can perform facial recognition against recent arrivals. This information may relate to other reporting about an alleged missing vessel from May 2012. As such, this report will be included with the other reporting. A ministerial brief on the alleged missing vessel from May 2012 was submitted to the MHA today. Regards,

Hi

s47F

Part One: On 11 July 2012, DIAC (Kaniva and Marama mailboxes) received the below information s47F from AMSA. In summary, contacted AMSA seeking information about five family members who had been at sea for more than 10 days (as at 11 July). This information was initially entered onto the possible missing persons from Kaniva spreadsheet, however the entries have now been separated from this spreadsheet as we (IAS) believe they were not on either the Kaniva or Marama vessels. Due to the amount of contacts we have received about the Kaniva boat, this information was not processed until mid last week. We have checked DIAC holdings for the below names and have found no close or near matches. Kind Regards,

Good day, RCC Australia has received the following request for information from the General Delegation of Palestine to Australia relating to an Australian bound asylum-seeker vessel which reportedly departed Indonesia on 30th June bound for Christmas Island with 67 persons onboard. As RCC Australia generally holds no information on names of persons involved in incidents of this nature we are currently unable to assist the person making the request, therefore RCC Australia passes this enquiry to Department of Immigration and Citizenship to coordinate.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to enquire about 28 Palestinians from Iraq, supposedly left Indonesia on June 30th, 2012 heading to Australia seeking for asylum. It was brought to the attention of the General Delegation of Palestine to Australia, that the Palestinian passengers on board of a boat leaving Indonesia heading to Christmas Island, has vanished. Information from different sources indicates that passengers called their relatives just before they left Indonesia.

We have learned that there were 67 passengers on board of the same boat, among them 28 Palestinians, these are names of few passengers that are missing: sons + 2 daughters s47F

+ wife+ 2

Question for IMAs from SAR 2012-4422 [SEC=IN-CONFIDENCE]

Hi s47F Could you please ask the officers on CI if there is any scope to re-interview a few Palestinian PIIs from SAR 2012-4422 (what would have been SIEV 367 or Uduc) which arrived on 4 July? Interviews with non-Palestinians from SAR 4422 would be a secondary priority, but still very useful. Background DIAC, AMSA and AFP have received a number of enquiries from Palestinians who claim their relatives were on a boat that departed Indonesia for Christmas Island on 30 June or 1 July. The PII relatives claim they have not heard from the PIIs since. The alleged missing vessel possibly had up to 67 PIIs on board, 28 of which are reportedly Palestinian - indicating other Middle Eastern PIIs were likely involved.
s33(b)

This matter is likely to be in the media shortly due to the number of PII relatives contacting Australian agencies. Tasking (all unclassified) We are trying to ascertain if the IMAs on CI have heard anything to indicate a boat carrying Palestinians and possibly other Middle Eastern PIIs has gone missing, following a departure from Java on or around 30 June. Was anyone expecting Palestinians or other Middle Eastern PIIs to arrive in early July who have not turned up? Does anyone know if a boat of Palestinians and ME PIIs departed on 30 July or 1 June, likely from West Java? Does anyone know/ think the smuggler/s involved in the SAR had recently launched a boat a few days prior to the SAR? Has anyone heard of Palestinians who turned up on the SAR not phoning home to inform their families they are safe? Were any of the IMAs on the SAR involved in a disruption of appx 45 Palestinian PIIs in West Java on 6 March? If so do they know if any family groups from this disruption were intending travel to Australia in early July?

Please pass along our thanks, particularly if they are able to help during such a busy time up at CI. Regards,

Just a query - has any agency actually undertaken to coordinate a response to s47F writing? The exchange below reads as though RCC are going to respond when they hear back from DIAC. Is this correct? I don't see any DIAC email addresses in the email from RCC below. If RCC have undertaken to respond to this request, they will need to also: * seek further information from the author of the email, particularly with regard to the ambiguous departure date. * provide the details to AFP for checking against their holdings * s47E(d) * request DIAC provide the details to their counterparts in Indonesia, in addition to UNHCR and IOM Grateful if you could confirm that this is what RCC intend to do at your earlier possible convenience. For a number of reasons, our WoG response to such enquiries must be very well coordinated - in short, there should be one agency responding on behalf of, and after consultation with, all others. I would also suggest that this matter is a higher priority than what RCC have denoted in their email to us. Kind regards

Subject: RE: Possible missing venture from Indonesia [SEC=IN-CONFIDENCE] Hi s47F Given that the enquiry was made with DIAC, it is more appropriate for DIAC to provide a response. We suggest the following. We have no information to indicate that a people smuggling vessel arrived in Australia on or shortly after 30 June 2012 with 28 Palestinians on board. Australian agencies, including the AFP and DIAC, have received a number of other enquiries that may relate to this matter and a number of names have been provided. Agencies are looking into the matter.

There should also be an undertaking to inform the person of any information relating to the matter if it becomes available. It is also important to request any further information that may assist agency enquiries into the matter, including names (and photos if available) of those said to be on board, departure point etc. Thanks Rgds,

Hi

s47F

Over the last few days DIAC has received several enquiries regarding the whereabouts of several Palestinians who were believed to have departed Indonesia on a boat somewhere between 28 and 30 June, with approximately 28 people on board. IAS has checked DIAC holdings and found no name matches for the twelve names provided below. We would appreciate it if you could pass these names to UNHCR and IOM to see if the below are known to their organisations.

Good afternoon, As you are both aware, I am writing a MINSUB on the possible missing vessel of 1 July.
s47F

, Director PSIAT has requested that s47E(d) please confirm they have shared the details of enquiries, including passenger names, received by Australian agencies to their Indonesian counterparts. Once agencies have confirmed these details have been shared with s47E(d) and Immigrasi, UNHCR and IOM (by DIAC) we will include a line in the MINSUB stating approximately "details of enquiries have been passed from Australian agencies to their Indonesian counterparts including s47E(d) Immigrasi and also to UNHCR and IOM." I have attached an unclassified version of the AFP report relating to this issue for DIAC information.

Background DIAC, AMSA and AFP have received a number of enquiries from Palestinians who claim their relatives were on a boat that departed Indonesia for Christmas Island on 30 June or 1 July. The PII relatives claim they have not heard from the PIIs since. The alleged missing vessel possibly had up to 67 PIIs on board, 28 of which are reportedly Palestinian - indicating other Middle Eastern PIIs were likely involved.

This matter is likely to be in the media shortly due to the number of PII relatives contacting Australian agencies.
