Suject : access to Agendas and EU legislative preparatory documents debated in Trilogues meetings from March 31st until May 12th

Dear European Parliament and Council of the European Union

According to news agencies several legislative Trilogues meetings took places between March 31st and May 12th, 2023; however, no official information has yet been published by the co-legislator, notwithstanding the provisions of art. 15.2 of TFEU, art. 12 of Regulation 1049/01 and the relevant CJEU Jurisprudence (notably, Case T-540/15).

Bearing in mind that participative democracy, as promoted by the EU Treaties, is meaningful only if legislative preparatory documents are accessible in a timely manner (see Case T-163/21) and that according to art.15 of Regulation 1049/01 “The institutions shall develop good administrative practices in order to facilitate the exercise of the right of access..” I therefore kindly ask to release as soon as possible, in the public domain, the meeting agendas and the legislative preparatory documents debated in Trilogues legislative meetings from March 31st until May 12th

Thanks in advance
