Dear Mr Giegold,

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a position to complete the handling of your application which expires on 3 August 2018.

An extended time limit for more in-depth investigations is needed in order to complete our assessment on the possibility for the public disclosure of the documents requested.

We apologize for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Dear Taxation and Customs Union,

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 'Statistical information about DAC exchange of information upon request'.

In your refusal of my documents request you are not demonstrating that divulging the information requested will cause any harm to the EU.

Additionally, in the view of the damage caused for national and EU public funding by possibly not using cross-border group requests to combat tax fraud, tax evasion and tax avoidance, I am of the opinion that there is an overwhelming public interest which overrides your concerns.

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

Yours faithfully,

Sven Giegold

Dear Mr Giegold,

I refer to your email of 5 September 2018, registered on 6 September 2018,

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

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
