The origin of the 11 supporting examples to the antisemitism definition. Who wrote them?
Jacob Ecclestone made this Informationsfreiheit request to Die Agentur der Europäischen Union für Grundrechte
This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.
Dear European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting all documents which contain the following information:
the official minutes/record of, and background submissions to, the sub-committee established by the Working Party on Xenophobia and Racism which produced a non-legally binding "working definition" of antisemitism and attached to this 40-word definition a list of 11 examples of what might be considered antisemitism.
It is my understanding that this definition and the supporting examples were not endorsed or agreed by the Working Party on Racism and Xenophobia. Notwithstanding this failure to endorse the definition and the 11 supporting examples I would request copies of all documents submitted to the Working Party and a copy of the official minutes of all meetings of the Working Party in 2004 and 2005.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
