7 April 2021 RE: Access to Documents

Dear DG Budget,
Referring to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents and to the 'Aarhus Regulation' (see note), I would herewith like to ask for access to the minutes of the following meetings:

• 29 Jun 2020 – Meeting between Commissioner Johannes Hahn and Business Europe- Discussion on Europe's Recovery Plan due to COVID-19

• 06 May 2020 - Meeting between Commissioner Johannes Hahn and Business Europe- Discussion on Europe's Recovery Plan due to COVID-19 (DG Budget and Administration)

To the extent possible, I prefer the documents in electronic format. Documents that cannot be sent in electronic format should be sent to Lala Hakuma DADCI, Rue d’Edimbourg 26, 1050 Brussels.
Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.
I reserve the right to appeal.

Please confirm having received this application. I look forward to your reply within 15 business days, according to the regulation.

Thank you for your assistance.
Lala Hakuma Dadci

Dear Madam,


Thank you for your e-mail of 7 April 2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 8
April 2021 under reference number GESTDEM 2021/2130.


In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on
29/04/2021. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course.


You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, the
European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or
problems linked to the use of this system.


Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your
rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.


We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).


Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.


If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence.  In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.
