Dear colleagues,

Could you please confirm that this initial request can be dealt by the Commission?
If so, I will close the request in our database and reply to the requestor that you will deal with his application.

We have received the information from our HR Division that application that Mr Abou made under Article 16 was treated by the Commission in this case the Appointing Authority ("AIPN").
Mr Abou's last day in office was 31 Decision 2010, still as a Commission Official. The EEAS does not have access or indeed responsibility over the job description of Commission posts in Delegations, even less so those are prior to the creation of the EEAS.

Thank you in advance,
Andrzej Dobrucki

Dear European External Action Service,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting all documents which relate to the job move by Serge Abou to Huawei and any other external activities which he may be undertaking.

In particular, I request a note of all Mr Abou's job titles at EEAS and its predecessors, including dates held; copies of
any application(s) that Mr Abou made under Article 16 of the
Staff Regulations to undertake a new professional activity; and all correspondence or emails related to the authorisation of the new role or roles.

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann
