From: Luisa Izuzquiza

Delivered

Dear European Council,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, we are hereby requesting access to the travel expenses of European Council Secretary-General Jeppe Tranholm-Mikkelsen, for the period 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2016 inclusive.

We are looking for documents that contain, for each of the trips, the following information:
- Place of origin and destination, and the amount spent on travel or transportation;
- Exact dates and duration of the trip;
- Amount spent on accommodation;
- Amount spent on subsistence;
- Other information, such as possible miscellaneous costs.

If the travel was by air taxi and a team of people were travelling, please also provide documents with details on the other travellers (at a minimum, names and job titles).

We are seeking detailed information because that is essential in order to ascertain how funds were spent and hence to ensure that the European Council is both transparent and accountable with respect to the spending by public officials of public funds while on public business.

With respect to personal information contained in any documents that you might have, we note that the only information being sought here is the name and surname of Secretary-General Tranholm-Mikkelsen, something which is clearly already in the public domain. This request does not seek access to any other personal information such as the bank account details of Secretary-General Tranholm-Mikkelsen. Nor are we requesting data such as the office addresses, signatures or telephone numbers of European Council Staff members.

We remain at your disposition to answer any questions or clarifications you might have related to this request.

Yours faithfully,

Helen Darbishire, Access Info Europe
and
Luisa Izuzquiza, Access Info Euope
