Dear European Central Bank,
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:
Detailed statistics dealing with the occurrence of counterfeit EURO banknotes of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 EUR, which were retained in Germany during the years 2002 - 2017.
These information will be used for study purposes, particularly as one of the sources for the master thesis.
Please, let me know if it is possible to get the information.
Dear Ms Šmídová,
We acknowledge receipt of your email of 12 July 2018 requesting access to
ECB documents containing “detailed statistics dealing with the occurrence
of counterfeit EURO banknotes of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 EUR,
which were retained in Germany during the years 2002 - 2017.” We would
like to inform you that, in agreement with the National Central Banks,
the ECB only publishes aggregated counterfeiting figures. These can be
found on the website of the European Central Bank (ECB) in the
respective biannual press releases. The Deutsche Bundesbank
publishes data for Germany on its website:
