Thank you for this information.

I could not find any proper reference on the DPO website; except vague
mentions in presentation slides[1]. Besides the DPO published annual
reports of 2009 till 2013 only. I could not find the annual report of
2016 to find more information therein.

(I contacted DPO for the report.)
