Santina Lee made this Official Information request to Ministry of Justice

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Ministry of Justice should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Santina Lee

Dear Ministry of Justice,

I would like to request the detailed statistics of the strangulation rates which was published on the news today (refer to the link below)

I need the total number of strangulation charges and also whether all these 250+ preparators were convicted or not?

I require the stats to be categorized by gender, age group, area and if any substantial evidence was provided.

Yours faithfully,

Yours faithfully,

Santina Lee
