Detail around name rejection appeals
This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Charles Mager to read a recent response and update the status.
From: Charles Mager
Dear Department of Internal Affairs,
Thank you for furnishing information about your name rejection basis. I appreciate you doing so. But I am very concerned that your current processes are still very biased in terms of culture, religion and other belief systems.
I am writing now to request further information. Please provide me with detail (for the same period that you furnished the rejected names database) of the names that were appealed and the basis for the acceptance or rejection of the name resulting from the appeal.
Department of Internal Affairs

Please note that in cases where the Department’s response provides information that is identified to be of general public interest, the response may also be published on the Department of Internal Affairs website. If the Department publishes its response to your OIA request, all personal information, including your name and contact details, will be removed.
