while there is no legal requirement to demand a postal address for an access to documents request, the European Commission already has my address in the European Parliament.

Dear Legal Service,

thank you for your letter dated 16.4.2018 with the reference number C(2018) 2401 final.

It was sent to the asktheeu email address assigned to the request GestDem 2018/1767 which is a different FOIA request. Please make sure that you don't mix email addresses. Otherwise you will cause all sorts of trouble for ongoing requests.

Is there anything on GestDem 2018/1767 that you want to send?

Yours faithfully,

Julia Reda

Dear Ms Reda,

Your confirmatory application is currently being handled. Unfortunately,
we have not yet been able to gather all the elements needed to carry out a
full analysis of your request and to take a final decision. Therefore, we
