Dear Permanent Representation of Netherlands to the EU,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents that contain the following information:

No. 1471

MEMBER'S MOTION OBSERVED

Proposed September 4, 2019 The Chamber,

heard the deliberation,

noting that Mr Timmermans has made a clear statement about the protection of whistleblowers;

noting that Ms Roelie Post wrote a whistleblower letter to the Prime Minister of the Netherlands when the Netherlands was President of the European Union;

noting that the problem she raised, child trafficking in intercountry adoptions, has by no means been resolved;

calls on the Dutch government and Mr Timmermans to arrive at a decent solution for both the case and for the person in question and to inform the House of this before 25 October,

And proceeds to the order of the day.
