Dear Eurostat,

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

-the total number of return operations conducted by EU Member States in 2017 and 2018, per year and per month, and the total number of migrants returned from Europe in 2017 and 2018, per year and per month;

-how many third-country nationals have been ordered to leave Europe in 2017 and 2018, per year and per month;

-which bilateral, return and readmission agreements (which kind, with which country, date) Europe has to return migrants to third countries;

-data on return operations carried out in 2017 and 2018 from EU Member States to third countries. For each operation:
-which countries are participating in the operation
-whether it is a national or joint, voluntary assisted, or readmission operation
-destination and date
-total number of migrants returned and their gender, age, country of origin
-costs covered by Member States or Frontex
-information on the flight (number of monitors, observers and staff on board)

I understand I am asking for a considerable amount of information. I would be grateful if you could provide any information that you have regarding the data I am looking for and expressively state which information you do not hold.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any question concerning my request.

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Martina Tombini

Dear Ms Tombini,

 

Further to your request for data on migrant returns, I should like to
inform you that as this is a request for information rather than for a
specific document (as under Regulation 1049/2001), you will receive a
reply shortly from the DG ESTAT User Support Department.

 

Kind regards,

Dear Eurostat,

Thank you for your message.

Although I do appreciate your suggestion, I would like my application to be treated as a request for access to documents, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001 of 30 May 2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents.

I am indeed interested to know whether Eurostat holds any document containing the information I am looking for.

Please also note that Regulation 1049/2001 applies to information recorded in any format ("any content whatever its medium"), so data contained inside electronic system also falls within the definition of documents for the purposes of the regulation.

I would be grateful if you could reply at your soonest convenience to confirm that this will be treated as an access to documents request and that you will respect the original timeframe (you acknowledged receipt of the request on 24 July 2019). Hence a reply should be provided within a maximum of 15 working days from the date of receipt of the request.

I remain at your disposal should you have any questions or clarifications.

Yours faithfully,

Martina Tombini
