Dear Mr. Nielsen,
This email is to inform you that, in November, we sent you a letter via recommended mail, to the address you indicated below, in your email, regarding the case with ref. number A(2020)11766.
It seems that on 30 November the Belgian Post made an attempt to deliver the letter to your address, but didn't find anyone and left a receipt allowing you to pick up the letter in the days after, but you didn't.
The letter has now returned to our offices.
