Dear European External Action Service,

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:

Correspondence between the Delegation of the EU to the Gambia and the Gambian authorities on the topic of readmission in the last 5 years.

All documents related to the issue of readmission, identification, or visa sanctions.

Best,

Kelly Bescherer

Dear Ms Bescherer,

We refer to your requests for access to documents registered under reference number 2022/025 addressed both to the EU Delegation in Gambia and to the EEAS Access to Documents service.

Following your requests, the EEAS is searching for the documents which could potentially fall within the scope of your application “correspondence between the Delegation of the EU to the Gambia and the Gambian authorities on the topic of readmission in the last 5 years.
All documents related to the issue of readmission, identification, or visa sanctions”.

Article 6(3) of the Regulation 1049/2001 provides that, in the event of an application relating to a very long or a very large number of documents, the institution concerned may confer with the applicant informally with a view to finding a fair solution. In accordance with the case law of the Union Courts, the proposal for a fair solution aims to balance the interest of the applicant against the workload resulting from the processing of the application in order to safeguard the interests of good administration (Judgments of 6 December 2001, Council v Hautala, Case C 353/99 P, EU:C:2001: 661, para. 30, and of 2 October 2014, Strack v Commission, Case C 127/13 P, EU:C:2014:2250, para.27).

Taking this into account and based on the above-mentioned provision, we would kindly ask you to specify the designated individuals/documents number/reduce the timeframe you are interested in so as to reduce the number of possible identified documents to a more manageable amount.

Could you kindly share your phone number with us to allow the EU delegation in the Gambia to reach out to you if further information is necessary to narrow the research?

We will make every effort to process your requests as quickly as possible. However the time frame will depend on the number of documents identified and therefore to be examined. Based on the current request, EEAS will not be able to complete its assessment within the normal time limits set out in Article 7 of Regulation (EC) No 1049.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your understanding.

Yours sincerely,

Dear EEAS ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS,

As I do not yet have access to the documents I am unfortunately unable to specify the exact document numbers or individual of interest.

Here is an attempt to narrow down my request: I request correspondence and reports related to the issue of visa sanctions since 2020.

Yours sincerely,

Kelly Bescherer

Dear EEAS ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS,

I can gladly also provide you with my phone number, but would not like to post it on the asktheeu website. Is there an email address where I can send you this information?
