How the European Commission dealt with a request for public access to documents concerning sanctions against Russia
Fall 1288/2022/SF - Geöffnet am Montag | 11 Juli 2022 - Betroffene Institution Europäische Kommission
The complainant asked the European Commission to grant public access to documents concerning sanctions against Russia. The Commission failed to take a final decision on the complainant's request within the applicable timeframe.
The Ombudsman opened an inquiry and asked the Commission to take a final decision on the request without further delay. As the Commission still failed to take a decision, the Ombudsman asked it to provide a list of the documents it identified as falling under the complainant's request.
