Dear Mr Dohle,

Please find attached the documents found in our archives concerning your request of access to documents registered under GESTDEM 2018/4818:

- Letter of Solidarité Enfants Roumains Abandonnés signed by Francois de Combret, dated 22 June 1993
-Reply signed by Sir Leon Brittan, dated 29 July 1993.

The documents to which you have requested access contain personal data, in particular handwritten signatures.
Pursuant to Article 4(1) (b) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, access to a document has to be refused if its disclosure would undermine the protection of privacy and the integrity of the individual, in particular in accordance with Community legislation regarding the protection of personal data. The applicable legislation in this field is Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2000 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions and bodies and on the free movement of such data[1].

When access is requested to documents containing personal data, Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 becomes fully applicable[2].
According to Article 8(b) of this Regulation, personal data shall only be transferred to recipients if they establish the necessity of having the data transferred to them and if there is no reason to assume that the legitimate rights of the persons concerned might be prejudiced.
We consider that, with the information available, the necessity of disclosing the aforementioned personal data to you has not been established and/or that it cannot be assumed that such disclosure would not prejudice the legitimate rights of the persons concerned. Therefore, we are disclosing a version of the documents requested in which these personal data have been redacted.

As to the handwritten signature and other handwritten text of Mr De Combret, which represents biometric data, there is a risk that their disclosure would prejudice the legitimate interests of the persons concerned, as it would expose them to the risk of forgery and identity theft.

As to the handwritten signature other handwritten text of former Commissioner Leon Brittan, which represents biometric data, there is a risk that their disclosure would prejudice the legitimate interests of the persons concerned.

In case you would disagree with the assessment that the redacted data are personal data which can only be disclosed if such disclosure is legitimate under the applicable rules on the protection of personal data, you are entitled, in accordance with Article 7(2) of Regulation 1049/2001, to make a confirmatory application requesting the Commission to review this position.
Such a confirmatory application should be addressed within 15 working days upon receipt of this letter to the Secretary-General of the Commission at the following address:

European Commission
Secretary-General
Transparency unit SG-B-4
BERL 5/288
B-1049 Bruxelles or by email to: [DG SG request email]

Yours faithfully,

JUST A1 CIVIL JUSTICE
