Dear Mr Merino,

 

We refer to your email dated 13/03/2019 and registered on the same date
under the above mentioned reference number, in which you request access 
to:

 

 “A list of all lobby meetings held by the commissioner in charge of
Communication Networks, Content and Technology, Mariya Gabriel, the
vice-president Andrus Ansip or any other member of its Cabinet with any
organisations representing churches and/or religious communities since
2014 onwards, including all emails, minutes, reports or any other briefing
papers related to all those meetings.”

 

 The description given in your application does not enable us to identify 
concrete documents which would correspond to your request. We therefore
invite you, pursuant to Article 6(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 
regarding public access to documents, to provide us with more detailed
information on the organisations you are referring to as “churches and/or
religious communities”. Indeed, it is not clear which communities may be
covered by your requests and numerous non profit organisations and
charities are supported by religious communities and we are not in a
position to identify all of them. Could you please name the churches and
religious communities you are referring to? Could you also please name the
organizations representing them?

 

 Furthermore, we would be grateful if you could specify the subject
matter(s) of the meetings and correspondence you are interested in.

 

 We kindly ask you to reply by email to:

 

[6][email address]

 

 

 The 15 working days time limit for handling your application will start 
running when we receive the requested clarifications.

 

 Thank you in advance for your understanding.

 

 Yours faithfully,

Dear ve_cnect.public_access_to_documents (CNECT),

Since I cannot see the email address you asked me to reply to, I am doing it via this request. These are the organizations I am referring to:

Churches and religious communities: the Agreement between the European Parliament and the European Commission on the transparency register for organisations and self-employed individuals engaged in EU
policy-making and policy implementation (19.9.2014) establishes that transparency register does not apply to churches and religious communities. As such, I cannot identify them in advance and I expected you, as one of the bodies of the EC applying this transparency requirements to lobbyists, to do it.

Organizations representing churches and religious communities: as you assumably know, these kind of lobbyists appear in the EU transparency register as "Organisations representing churches and religious communities" (http://ec.europa.eu/transparencyregister....

Yours sincerely,

Álvaro Merino
