Dear European Parliament,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information: the list for PREVIOUS parliamentary terms of the accredited parliamentary assistants including name/surname, email address and which MEP employs them.
This information was once available on your website, but now is no longer accessible, not even with a search in the Public Register of Documents. I think that as European Citizens we have a right of public scrutiny over the list of people who served our MEPs as assistant in previous terms.
As an example, at the link https://imagebin.ca/v/5NPohiA5vsds you can see a screenshot which contains Google Results for a page no longer accessible on the european Parliament Website:
I think that the information once provided on this page, along with all the other data concerning MEPs assistants for previous terms, should be made publicly available.
