ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS, European Defence Agency

Dear Sir,

We refer to your e-mail of 3 March 2021, in which you make a request for access to documents and your subsequent follow-up message of 6 March 2021 in response to our Acknowledgment of Receipt dated 4 March 2021, where you request "written proof signed by a member of the European Defence Agency that the EDA does not have files/documents on unidentified flying objects or and unidentified aerial phonenomon (sic)".

Please note that, as already communicated to you on 23 February 2021, EDA does not hold any documents on unidentified flying objects and/or unidentified aerial phenomena. Also, we have not identified any correspondence or notes based on any letters addressed to Jiří Šedivý, EDA's Chief Executive on this matter.

As specified in Article 2(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, the right of access as defined in that regulation applies only to existing documents in the possession of the institution. Given that no such documents, corresponding to the description given in your application, are held by EDA, the latter is not in a position to fulfil your request.

In accordance with Article 7(2) of Regulation 1049/2001, you are entitled to make a confirmatory application requesting EDA to review its position. Such a confirmatory application should be addressed within 15 working days upon receipt of this email to the Chief Executive of EDA to the following email: [EDA request email].

Yours sincerely,

Dear European Defence Agency,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Correspondence regarding UAPs?UFOs to Jiri Sedivy CEO EDA and Josef Borrell Acting Head EDA'.

[ on 15th of Feburary 2021 I sent via post documents to Josef Borrell and Jiri Sedivy at the European Defernce Agency out lining my concerns that the United States Department of Defence take encursions into US airspace by unknown craft (UAPs) so serious that a task force has been set up to investigate these incidents.
I did not receive a reply from the EDA nor was my correspondence returned to my home address therefore it is fair to assume that the EDA is in possession of my documents. I did and FOI request for any information and I received a reply stating that the EDA have no files. I believe that the EDA is being dishonest and as a citizen and tax payer on the European Union I now call on Josef Borrell and Jiri Sedivy to give me an honest reply.
If neither gentleman replies or states there are no files I consider them unfit for their positions in the European Defence Agency.
thank you
Chris Gaffney Dublin Ireland
