This reply is not acceptable because it fails to mention on what grounds this information is rejected.
They can only rely on the exceptions found in Regulation 1049/2001.
Sandra, file a confirmatory application asking them to explain on what legal basis they have taken this decision. They need to motivate their reponse.

Estimado Presupuestos,

As you didn´t motivated legally your responde, may I ask you to explain on what legal basis you have taken this decision

Yours faithfully,

It is only a html page that can only be accessed from Commissions Computers

Dear Madam

Apologies for not being clear, but this is not necessiarily a legal issue, rather a practical one. The Commission's accounting manual comprises numerous HTML pages that can only be accessed by Commission staff via their intranet (internal network).

I hope this clarifies the situation better

Maryse Trogh
