Dear Postmaster Consilium,

I would like to remind you of my request for access to documents regarding the role of the Institute of International Finance in the eurocrisis summits in July and October.

I should have received a response by 17 November 2011, but this does not appears to have been the case.

Yours sincerely,

Olivier Hoedeman

Dear European Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of European Council's handling of my FOI request 'the role of the Institute of International Finance in the eurocrisis summits in July and October'.

I would like to complain about the claim made in the response from Mr. Jacob Thomsen (letter dated 12 December) that the contacts with the IIF before, during and after the above-mentioned summits "consisted of discussions between one Member State, namely Greece" and the IIF. There is ample evidence that the discussions involved not only Greece, but the European Council more generally, including Ms. Merkel and Mr. Sarkozy. As an example allow me to refer to the article in today's Wall Street Journal "Deepening Crisis Over Euro Pits Leader Against Leader" (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424.... I would therefore like to request a review of the response and a new assessment of my request for access to documents.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Olivier Hoedeman
