Dear European Ombudsman,
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:
On February 2013 the previous Ombudsman launched an inquiry into conflict of interest at European Commission. http://euobserver.com/institutional/119070
The opinion of new Ombudsman is developed here
I would like to access documents and/or information related to this potential or perceived conflict of interest http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/artic... (Martin Salmayr role as Director of the Electoral Campaign of Jean-Claude Juncker, EPP Candidate for President of the European Commission during his employment at European Commission. Article 16 and other relevant provisions of Staff Regulation for the EU staff.)
-if it is part of the new Ombudsman`s inquiry (handed over by previous Ombudsman).
Abstract: By his current role of Mme Reding`s head of cabinet, Martin Salmayr has a lot of insider information and could use them to give advantage to Jean-Claude Juncker. In this way the competitors like M. Schulz or M. Rehn could be disadvantaged. How EO would assess this situation? Thanks.
Dear European Ombudsman,
Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.
I am writing to request an internal review of European Ombudsman's handling of my FOI request 'Article 16 Staff Regulation - Mme Reding`s Head of Cabinet Martin Salmayr'.
I did not receive a reply therefore I use confirmatory review. Thanks a lot for treating my request.
A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/artic...
Dear Mr Dillon,
Thank you for your reminder regarding the request her below. I sincerely deplore and apologise for the fact that I have overlooked your request.
I can inform you that we do not hold documents that correspond to your request. The request has therefore not been registered as a request for access to documents.
With regard to your question at the end of your e-mail, about how the Ombudsman would assess a certain situation, please note that the European Ombudsman usually does not provide concrete findings on specific situations that are not the subject of an inquiry.
