Strong public support for Ombudsman’s bee inquiry
Caso 2142/2018/EWM - Aberto em Terça-Feira | 18 dezembro 2018 - Recomendação sobre Sexta-Feira | 10 maio 2019 - Decisão de Terça-Feira | 03 dezembro 2019 - Instituição em causa Comissão Europeia (Má administração detetada )
5 December 2019 - Thank you to all those who have written to express their support for our request for public access to Member State positions on guidelines for assessing the effects of pesticides on bees. We have received over 500 messages favouring more transparency in this area.
In our decision, we confirm our finding that the European Commission's refusal to grant access to documents is maladministration.
The Ombudsman will continue to monitor progress closely.
