Dear Ms Gennari,

 

Thank you for your email and your interest in Frontex activities.

 

We would like to inform you that pursuant to Article 2(1) of Regulation
(EC) No 1049/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May
2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and
Commission documents, the right of access to documents is granted to a
citizen of the Union, and any natural or legal person residing or having
its registered office in a Member State.

 

To confirm that you are invested in the right of access to the documents
requested, it is necessary to provide an ID card/passport/residence permit
in the EU/registration in an EU Member State (legal persons). You may
however refuse to provide such document containing personal data; in that
case, your request is not going to be processed.

 

After receiving the above mentioned documents, we will be able to start
processing your request and will get back to you within 15 working days.

 

Please be informed of the following:

-          The person responsible for controlling the personal data (Data
controller) is the Head of Legal Affairs Unit

-          The personal data is collected for the exclusive purpose of
assessing the nationality of the applicant

-          The recipients of the personal data are the 3 Frontex Staff
members (Senior Legal Officer, Junior Lawyer and Legal Assistant) handling
requests for public access for documents

-          The personal data collected (that is, the document sent to the
PAD mailbox) will be deleted as soon as the access for the request
document(s) is granted or refused.  In Frontex, this procedure takes no
longer than 15 or 30 working days depending on the number/size of the
requested documents. During the processing of your data, you have a right
to access your data and rectify them if needed. You have a right to have
recourse to the European Data Protection Supervisor.

 

Thank you very much for your understanding.

 

If you will have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear PAD,

I'm interested, since I work as a lawyer on migration law and management, in understanding in a deeper way how this new operation will concretely work: i.e. which are the states involved, the composition of the European Border and Coast Guard teams, which kind of tasks will be assigned to the teams, their responsibilities, if it's possible the chain of command, where the teams will operate exactly, which resources, instruments and technical equipment are or will be deployed, detailed description of the modus operandi and aims of the operation,

Yours sincerely,

Lucia Gennari

Dear European Border and Coast Guard Agency,

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 'Operational plan for operation Themis'.

I believe that the motivation provided concerning the possibility to apply to my request art. 4(1)a Reg. 1049/2001 has to be considered insufficient.

The mere reference to the fact that the Themis operation is "ongoing" can't justify by itself a rejection of the refusal without any further and deeper explanation also regarding the different elements of the FOIA request ( which are the states involved, the composition of the European Border and Coast Guard teams, which kind of tasks will be assigned to the teams, their responsibilities, if it's possible the chain of command, where the teams will operate exactly, which resources, instruments and technical equipment are or will be deployed, detailed description of the modus operandi and aims of the operation).

The published informations indicated in Frontex reply are extremely generic and can't fulfill the purpose of Reg. 1049/01 which, in whereas n. 2 underlines that "Openness enables citizens to participate more closely in the decision-making process and guarantees that the administration enjoys greater legitimacy and is more effective and more accountable to the citizen in a democratic system. Openness contributes to strengthening the principles of democracy and respect for fundamental rights as laid down in Article 6 of the EUTreaty and in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union".
Furthermore whereas n. 7 prescribes that "the right of access also applies to documents relating to the common foreign and security policy and to police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters. Each institution should respect its security rules". This last sentence can't for sure lead to the annihilation of the previous one. Neither the reference to art. 4(1)a can determine a total rejection of the FOIA request.
In the present case a short video and a few generic lines on Frontex website cannot satisfy the rights of Eu citizens descending from Reg. 1049/2001 regarding the Agency's activities.

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

Yours faithfully,

Lucia Gennari
