Dear Mr Sztojka,

 

The European Parliament hereby acknowledges receipt of your application
for public access to documents, which was registered today, 17 December
2019, under the reference A(2019)16008.

 

All requests for public access to documents are treated in compliance with
Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 of 30 May 2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents.

 

In accordance with that Regulation, your application will be handled
within 15 working days from the registration of your request. Your
personal data will be processed in accordance with Regulation (EU)
2018/1725 of 23 October 2018 on the protection of natural persons with
regard to the processing of personal data by the Union institutions,
bodies, offices and agencies and on the free movement of such data.

 

The European Parliament reserves the right to ask for additional
information regarding your identity in order to verify compliance with
Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 and the European Parliament’s implementing
measures.

 

Your attention is drawn to the fact that you have lodged your application
via the AsktheEU.org website, which is a private website not affiliated
with the European Parliament. Therefore, the European Parliament cannot be
held responsible for any technical issues or problems linked to the use of
that system.

 

In addition to that, please note that any personal data that you provide
by using AsktheEU.org website may be disclosed to the general public and
visible on that private website. The European Parliament cannot be held

Dear Mr Sztojka,

 

In your application under Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 you requested
"documents which contain information on how to file the appropriate
documentation within Parliament to file a complaint against an MEP in
contempt and abuse of his/her powers".

 

Initially, we wish to inform you that the scope of that Regulation, as
defined in Article 2(3) thereof, extends only to documents held by an
institution, that is to say, documents drawn up or received by it and in
its possession, and does not cover the broader concept of information. As
set out in well-established case-law of the Court of Justice of the
European Union (e.g. T-214/13, Typke v Commission), it is necessary to
maintain a distinction between the concept of a document and that of
information, for the purposes of applying that Regulation. Information may
be distinguished from a document, in particular, in so far as it is
defined as a data element that may appear in one or more documents. In
that respect, since no provision of that Regulation deals with the right
of access to information as such, it cannot be inferred that the public’s
right of access to an institution document implies a duty on the part of
the institution to reply to any request for information from an
individual.

 

Therefore, Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 does not constitute a basis that
would require Parliament to provide legal advice, including on how to
initiate any type of legal proceedings.

 

Nonetheless, you may find the following documents relevant to your query:

 

Rules of Procedure of the European Parliament, including Articles 10 and
11 thereof and Annexes I and II thereto

[1]http://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/docu...

 

Bureau Decision of 2 July 2018 on the functioning of the Advisory
Committee dealing with harassment complaints concerning Members of the
European Parliament and its procedures for dealing with complaints

[2]www.europarl.europa.eu/resources/library/media/20181003RES14909/20181003RES14909.pdf

 

On this basis, Parliament considers your application as handled and the
file A(2019)16008 closed. Should you have a new request for specific
Parliament documents, please do not hesitate to come back to us.

 

Kind regards,

Dear AccesDocs,

I thank you for answering my inquest; however, I'm a bit confused on why the request was dismissed the matter was closed. The World Roma Federation is a registered agency in accordance with the guidelines of the European Union and we have measure to file a complaint against an MEP. The chief matter is to know the adequate process to begin. The World Roma Federation has been grievously mishandled and would like to seek restorative measures from the EU to handle this situation in accordance with its laws. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Janos Sztojka

Dear Mr Sztojka,

 

Thank you for your message.

 

In our previous response (below) we provided you with the reasons as to
why Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 does not require the Parliament to
provide you with legal advice that you are seeking, as well as with the
link to the Rules of Procedure of the European Parliament, including the
Code of conduct for Members of the European Parliament with respect to
financial interests and conflicts of interest (Annex I) and the Code of
appropriate behavior for Members of the European Parliament in exercising
their duties (Annex II).

 

Since your request falls outside the scope of Regulation (EC) No
1049/2001, we have forwarded it to our Citizens' Enquiries Unit and they
will get back to you.

 

Best wishes,
