  • Case: 1956/2017/THH
    Opened on 13 Mar 2018 - Decision on 13 Mar 2018
  • Institution(s) concerned: European Parliament

The case concerned the European Parliament’s refusal to grant public access to the lists of members affiliated to two European political parties for specified financial years.  The documents provided by the European Parliament had included only the European political party, the country and the public mandate of the relevant individuals; all names of the members had been deleted from the lists. 

The Ombudsman found that it was possible for a solution to be achieved, resulting in the release of the requested documents to the complainant.

The inquiry is therefore closed.
