Xavier Azalbert

I am Xavier Azalbert a scientific journalist with France-Soir.fr a French recognised media published by the company SHOPPER UNION France at the following address: https://www.francesoir.fr/.
The media France-Soir holds an IPG certificate, i.e. recognised by the French authorities as an online press site for political and general information.
Article 15 TFEU provides, inter alia, that: "Each institution, body, office or agency shall ensure the transparency of its work and shall lay down in its rules of procedure specific provisions concerning access to its documents, in accordance with the regulations referred to in the second subparagraph".
In addition, the Members of the Commission are officials and within the scope of their duties they act as depositaries of official authority delegated the authority of the Member States, including France
As a journalist for France-Soir I wish to obtain communication, under the right to Transparency :
1. All correspondence exchanged in all forms and formats (electronic, paper, sms, email, whatsapp messages, EDI (electronic data interchange), or any other private or public messaging format) between the organization bearing the name "Bilderberg Meeting" (https://bilderbergmeetings.org/) and the European Commission and in particular, those of the Commissioners who participated in the events of the organization.
2. All documents received, given, or written on site during the holding of the "meetings" of the Bilderberg group or in connection with the holding of the events,
3. All reports, work and reports drawn up by the Commissioners, their teams or the Commission concerning the "Bilderberg Meeting" group, participation in its events or its relations with the European institutions and their staff,
4. Theregulations, and/or decisions of the institutions which decide or supervise the participation of Commissioners in the events of the Bilderberg group, and/or the mandate given by the Commission to these Commissioners for this purpose,
5. All documents relating to the travel/subsistence/registration/participation expenses of Commissioners who participated in Bilderberg Group events,
6. All correspondence exchanged in all forms (electronic, paper, sms, email, whatsapp messages, ...) between the organisation known as the "World Economic Forum (WEF)" (https://www.weforum.org/) and the European Commission and in particular Commissionerswho have participated in the organisation's events.
7. All documents received, given, or written on site during the holding of the "meetings" of the World Economic Forum or in connection with the holding of events,
8. All reports, work and reports drawn up by the Commissioners, their teams or the Commission on the World Economic Forum WEF group, participation in its events and its relations with the European institutions and their staff,
9. Regulations and/or decisions of the institutions which decide or supervise the participation of Commissioners in World Economic Forum (WEF) events, and/or the mandate given by the Commission to these Commissioners for this purpose,
10. All documents relating to the travel/subsistence/registration/participation expenses of the Commissioners who participated in the World Economic Forum (WEF) events
The period concerned by the requests for access to documents above is from the year 2018 to today.
France-Soir adds the "Bilderberg group ", just as the "World Economic Forum WEF) is not included in the Commission's transparency register (https://ec.europa.eu/transparencyregiste... ) which is a violation of European rules on Transparency.
I await your answer with great interest as an article is in preparation and this information is critical for French and European citizens in order to ensure paramount transparency of the actions of our representatives.
Yours sincerely
Xavier Azalbert
