Dear European Defence Agency,
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:
Please, can you provide me with any official reports produced by the EDA that has examined the issues of arms sales to Egypt from European states (with main focus on France and the UK) since the Arab Spring uprising in 2011?
These can come in the form of official briefings, internal reports or any other fact-finding missions that specifically deals with arms sales from EU Member States (main focus France/UK) to Egypt during the timeframe outlined above.
I appreciate this is a large task and so, in order for there to be a time limit to this search, can you supply me with the most obvious reports first and foremost. Given that thisequest system is meant to be an open dialogue between the public and the government, can you please liaise with me in ascertaining what is an 'obvious report.'
Clearly, someone on your Egypt desk will know what the main reports are and so they will be best informed to tell you what reports to send me.
My email is [email address] for such correspondence.
