Memo to the attention of Mr. James Panichi

by email ([1][FOI #2324 email])

Subject:                     Access to information request –
Correspondence relating to harassment claims of COR official Robert Mc Coy
2013-2014

Ref.:                            Your email dated 6 October 2015

Dear Mr. Panichi,

Following your request regarding public access to documents, you mentioned
in your email dated 6th October 2015 that you are interested by "all
correspondence relating to claims of harassment from Robert McCoy, from
January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2014. Including reports and email
attachments.

Only two documents were identified falling under the scope of your
request.

Indeed, in two judgments of the European Union Civil Service Tribunal
(Case F-86/11 and Case F-156/12; see
[2]http://eur-lex.europa.eu/homepage.html?l...), respectively dated
March 7^th 2013 and November 18^th 2014, the terms of "psychological
harassment" are quoted, but without being a judicial recognition of such a
situation.

However, in connection with these two judgments, under the exception of
Article 4(2) second indent (protection of court proceedings) of Regulation
1049/2001, we consider that we cannot disclose the correspondence relating
to the court proceedings.

In accordance with Article 7(2) of Regulation 1049/2001, you are entitled
to make a confirmatory application requesting the Committee of the Regions
to review this position.

Such a confirmatory application should be addressed within 15 working days
upon receipt of this letter to the Secretary General of the Committee of
the Regions at the following address:

 

Committee of the Regions

To the attention of the Secretary General

JDE 4151

B-1040 Brussels

 

or by email to: [email address]

 

 

Yours faithfully,

Dear Committee of the Regions,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Committee of the Regions's handling of my FOI request 'Correspondence relating to hararassment allegations of CoR official Robert McCoy 2013-2014'.

I strongly believe the decision to deny me access to these documents is not justified.

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

Yours faithfully,

James Panichi

Dear Committe of the Regions,

I have not received a response about the internal review. If you do not contact me in coming days I will have to take this matter further, to relevant authorities.

Yours sincerely,

James Panichi
