Dear Communication,

thank you for confirming the reception of my access to documents request. You are now required under Article 7 (2) sentence 1 and 2 of Regulation 1049/2001 to send me a confirmation of the registration of my request.

Nothing in the Regulation contains a requirement to send you my postal address. In fact, the postal address requirement is quite bogus since we are communicating via email and the asktheeu.org tool.

I am also referring you to the decision of the Ombudsman office in case 10/2018/AP and prior decisions: "the Commission’s practice, of requiring all persons asking for public access to documents to give their postal address, amounts to maladministration."

Since the Commission already has my postal address, your refusal to register my request is not founded in any legitimate concern but simply the outcome of a strategy to deny access to information. I am pretty sure that you understand that I cannot let this happen.

Yours faithfully,

Mathias Schindler

Dear Sir,
Please find enclosed a letter concerning your request for access to

Dear Communication,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Article "The Copyright Directive: how the mob was told to save the dragon and slay the knight" on medium'.

I believe that not all information falling under the scope of Regulation 1049/2001 and under the request was identified and subsequently released.

The email of February 8 reads "Please find the agreed text below." which directly implies that other versions of the text and other information concerning the editorial process of this text exists.

The email of February 14 reads ". Please send me the links" which directly implies that more communication concerning parts of the article including hyperlinks exists.

The redactions are overly broad and not justified under Regulation 1049/2001.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/arti...

Yours faithfully,

Mathias Schindler

Dear Mr Schindler,

 

I refer to your email of 1 April 2019, registered on 2 April 2019, by
which you submit a confirmatory application in accordance with Article
7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to European
Parliament, Council and Commission documents ("Regulation (EC) No
1049/2001").

 

Your confirmatory application is currently being handled. Unfortunately,
we have not yet been able to gather all the elements needed to carry out a
full analysis of your request and to take a final decision.

Therefore, we were not in a position to reply to your confirmatory request
within the prescribed time limit expired on 26 April 2019. Consequently,
we have to extend this period by another 15 working days in accordance
with Article 8(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001. The new deadline
expires on 21 May 2019.

 

However, I can assure you that we are doing our utmost to provide you with
a final reply within the next 15 working days. I regret this additional
delay and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

Yours sincerely,
