Exchange of letters Members European Parliament - VP Reding

La demande est réussie.

Dear Secretariat General (SG),

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:

During the European Parliament Petition Committee of June 2011, MEP Bostinaru referred to a letter sent by 3 MEPs to VP Reding. According to MEP Bostinaru, VP Reding responded in a weak and very vague manner.

The statement can be verified here, at 18:25

I would like to have access to the letter from the MEPs, as well as the reply of VP Reding.

Yours faithfully,

Arun Dohle

Secrétariat général de la Commission européenne

Dear Secretariat General (SG),

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

I am writing to request an internal review of DG JUST's handling of my FOI request 'Exchange of letters Members European Parliament - VP Reding'.

My request has been extended with 15 days "in order to retrieve the documents requested from a large file".
I do not consider this justified.

An exchange of letters between MEPs (Bostinaru, Bruni and ALDE Coordinator - see video) and Vice President Reding should not be so difficult to identify. I assume their is a register, so the reason given for the extension seems to me not valid.

Therefore I kindly request access to the exchange of letters without further delay.

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

Yours faithfully,

Arun Dohle

L'activité des services de la Commission européenne étant réduite durant
le mois d'août, vos demandes d'accès aux documents seront traitées dans
les meilleurs délais. Toutefois, certains retards peuvent se produire, en
particulier lorsque le traitement des données exige la consultation des
administrations nationales, d’organisations extérieures ou d’autres
services.

*  *  *

Die Tätigkeiten der Dienststellen der Europäischen Kommission sind im
August reduziert; Ihre Anträge auf Zugang zu Dokumenten werden dennoch so
schnell wie möglich bearbeitet. Allerdings können Verzögerungen auftreten,
insbesondere wenn die Berarbeitung der Anträge die Konsultierung der
nationalen Verwaltungen, externer Organisationen oder anderer
Dienststellen erforderlich macht.

The activity of European Commission departments is likely to be reduced
during August.  We will handle  your requests for access to documents as
soon as possible.  However, some delays may occur, especially where the
processing of data requires the consultation of national administrations,
external organisations or other services.

Dear Mr Dohle,

 

Thank you for your message dated 14/08/2013.

After analysis of the file of your request, it appears that the
Directorate-General for Justice sent you a extension of deadline in line
with the Regulation 1049/2001.

Consequently, your request for confirmatory application is premature and
will not be registered by our service.

Directorate-General for Justice will send you an answer within the
extended deadline, namely 03/09/2013.

In order to be able to treat more quickly your correspondence, may I
kindly ask you, in your future messages, to mention the reference of the
Commission corresponding to the request you are talking about (GestDem
number)?

Thank you by advance for your kind cooperation.

Sincerely yours,

 

Paul SIMON
