Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

The CV - Georgeta-Luminita NICOLAIE, containing a clear timeline of responsibilities. From 1986 until today.

Yours faithfully,

Arun Dohle

sg-acc-doc@ec.europa.eu,

Dear Sir or Madam,

We are writing to you concerning your request for access to documents sent
on 03/08/2023 and registered on 03/08/2023 under case number 2023/4646.

Since you have not indicated your postal address, we are not able to start
handling your request. The 15 working days to reply to your request will
start running only when you send us your postal address.

You can send your postal address by replying to this e-mail. If we do not
receive your reply we may close this case.

Please note that you can submit a request for access to Commission
documents via the portal [1]'Request a Commission document', which does
not require you to indicate your postal address.

Why do we need your personal postal address?

Since 1 April 2014, the submission of a postal address became a mandatory
feature when submitting an application for access to Commission documents
via an e-mail. We would like to explain why we need your postal address in
order to register and handle your application for access to documents when
submitted via e-mail:

• Firstly, to obtain legal certainty as regards the date you received
the European Commission reply to your application for public access to
documents. Article 297 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the
European Union (TFEU) states that 'decisions which specify to whom
they are addressed, shall be notified to those to whom they are
addressed and shall take effect upon such notification.' In line with
this provision, if the Commission does not grant full access to the
requested documents, it notifies the reply to the applicant via
registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt or via delivery
service. This requires an indication of a valid postal address by the
applicant;
• Secondly, to apply correctly the [2]Data Protection Regulation (EU)
2018/1725. Knowing whether the applicant is an EU resident (or not) is
necessary for deciding which conditions shall apply for the
transmissions of personal data to applicants for access to documents.
These conditions are not the same for recipients established in the
Union and for recipients in third countries. As the vast majority of
the documents requested contain personal data, the Commission cannot
ensure the correct application of the data protection rules in the
absence of a postal address;
• Thirdly, to apply correctly [3]Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001. Article
4(1)(b) of that Regulation refers to the protection of the privacy and
integrity of the individual and has to be applied in line with the
Data Protection Regulation;
• Fourthly, to protect the interest of other citizens and safeguard the
principle of good administration. The Commission has to treat all
citizens equally by ensuring that the legal framework for public
access to documents is respected. For example, it has to verify
whether Article 6(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 is being evaded
by introducing several requests under different identities. Indeed, in
its Ryanair judgment ([4]EU:T:2010:511), the General Court confirmed
that Article 6(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 cannot be evaded by
splitting an application into several, seemingly separate, parts. In
addition, the Commission has to make sure that the legal framework is
respected and the right of access to documents is not abused by making
requests under an invented identity.

The considerations above show that the request for and the consequent
processing of the applicant's postal address is not only appropriate, but
also strictly necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the
public interest within the meaning of Article 5(1)(a) of Data Protection
Regulation, namely providing a smooth and effective access to documents.

Yours faithfully,

Secretariat-General - Access to Documents
European Commission

Hello,

Please find attached a message concerning your request for access to
Commission documents registered under the above case number 2023/4646.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this message by return email.
Kind regards,

Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'CV Georgeta-Luminita NICOLAIE'.

Hereby I hand in a confirmatory appeal.

Since you insist on a reason, a necessity, to obtain access in the public interest, let me spell it out.

On 21 February 2021 I received an email from

Georgeta Luminita NICOLAIE, Director
Investigation and Disciplinary Office of the Commission (IDOC)
European Commission-DG Human Resources and Security

This email was a reply on behalf of the Secretary-General to two emails I had addressed to President Ursula von der Leyen about the recognition of me as director of Against Child Trafficking as a whistleblower and repair of the financial damages done that were the result of the European Commission's decision to outsource Mrs. Roelie Post by a paid secondment to Against Child Trafficking (ACT), in the interest of the service.

At the time I wondered already why a Director on Disciplinary Procedures would reply to me. Recently I found this letter on the website of Racines & Dignite, a group of Romanian adoptees. Their complaint to OLAF made me curious about the background of this Romanian former judge.

Considering the importance of Mrs. Nicolaie in the treatment of EU whistleblower Mrs. Roelie Post, I consider the publication of the CV of this Director a necessity and in the public interest.

https://racines-dignite.org/demande-denq...

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/cv_ge...

Yours faithfully,

Arun Dohle

A complaint was made at the European Ombudsman.

Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

We take note of the delay in your treatment of the confirmatory appeal.

We would like to add to our confirmatory appeal that the exception to protect personal privacy, to which the Final Letter refers, does not apply to public officials when they are acting in an official capacity. This means, in our understanding, that documents relating to their work are not exempt from public access.

Therefore, please provide us asap with the CV of the Director of the Disciplinary Office, Mrs. Nicolaie.

It is in the public interest to provide transparency in order to be able to exclude any possible conflict of interest.

Yours faithfully,

Arun Dohle
