Dear Migration and Home Affairs,

that is the reply to the wrong FOI request, on the wrong platform (and in the wrong language). In the FOI request you know replied to, I asked for the national risk assessments for the security of 5G networks. Please get back to me with the right reply.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Migration and Home Affairs,

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 'National risk assessments for security of 5G networks'.

My request was refused on grounds of public security. However, at least part of the documents in question are already public. The German authority granted me access to their response to the Commission. (See here: https://fragdenstaat.de/anfrage/national...). It hardly makes sense to argue against any kind of disclosure on security grounds when at least one authority saw no reason to withhold.

Also, the Commission has said it would publish their EU-wide risk assessment based on the national submissions by October 1st 2019, now posponed tentatively to October 9th. If the EU-wide risk assessment can be published, certainly the national submissions can't be more secret than that.

In regard to the ongoing decision making process, I would like to argue that these documents in question do not reflect a national viewpoint that is up for debate and argument, but rather a factual assessment of the status quo. Therefore their disclosure can hardly affect the decision making based on them in a negative way.

Also, I would like to the significant public interest in disclosure of the document. A story I wrote on the German submission to the process was picked up by the news agency DPA and other outlets, it was widely reported in Germany. (See here: https://netzpolitik.org/2019/deutschland...). News stories on the leaked draft documents for the EU-wide risk assessment were reported in several outlets including Politico and Agence Europe. This should merit consideration that public interest is big enough for disclosure.

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

Yours faithfully,

Alexander Fanta
