No evidence of criminal act: AFP

THE Australian Federal Police says it will not investigate the disclosure of Opposition Leader Tony Abbott's location before the Australia Day tent embassy protest, despite an official request by the federal opposition.

The AFP said in a statement that "no evidence of a criminal act was identified".

It added that it had an ongoing investigation into the actions of the protesters outside the Canberra restaurant, which commenced on Friday.

"The AFP can confirm it became aware of information concerning the alleged disclosure of information on the location of the Leader of the Federal Opposition, Mr Tony Abbott, during Australia Day," an AFP spokeswoman told AAP in a statement.

"The AFP subsequently evaluated the information and no evidence of a criminal act was identified."
