Dear Justice and Consumers,
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:
- A list of all internal (DG JUST) meetings that took place between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2019 in which the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was mentioned in relation to the identification and listing of high-risk third countries in the context of the EU’s anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) rules;
- Agendas, minutes, reports and other documentation of these meetings;
- All correspondence between DG JUST officials that took place between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2019 in which the UAE was mentioned in relation to the identification and listing of high-risk third countries in the context of the EU’s anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) rules. This could include but is not limited to, e-mails, text messages, basis documents, memos or drafts.
This request extends to any information that the Commission holds in relation any of the above points, including information that may have been deemed short-lived or unimportant.
Please allow me to thank you in advance for your efforts.
