Dear European Parliament,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting all the documents which contain the following information:
1. How much money the European Parliament gave to the Portuguese newspaper Público as funding to the creation of a section in that newspaper regarding the European Elections 2019?
You can see it here: https://www.publico.pt/europa-que-conta
2. What are the terms and conditions of that funding regarding the availability and access to the news articles in the referred section by the citizens?
Dear Ms Simoes,
The time limit for processing your application for access to documents about the Portuguese newspaper Público, would in principle end by the end of 11 June 2019.
However, due to longer than expected consultations on your application, we feel compelled to extend the deadline for replying by 15 working days, in accordance with Article 7 (3) of Regulation (EC) 1049/2001.
With our apologises for any inconvenience.

Dear Ms Simoes
This is a reply to your application A(2019)6073 submitted under Regulation
(EC) No 1049/2001.
As a preliminary remark, Parliament points out that Regulation (EC) No
1049/2001 applies to the documents held by the European Parliament, and
not to information. The institution is not bound to search for and produce
information so as to reply to an application for access to documents, and
it is generally not its policy.
However, the maximum grant amount awarded to Portuguese newspaper Público
in application of the relevant grant agreement is EUR 80.600,00.
It is understood that the terms and conditions are set out on Parliament's
webpage dedicated to grants, under the section on Media Grants:
In view of the foregoing, Parliament considers you application as handled
and closes the file. Should you be interested in accessing a specific
Parliament document please do not hesitate to submit a new application.
