The Council of the EU's refusal to give full public access to a legal opinion on the proposed EU directive on adequate minimum wages

The complainant asked the Council of the EU to give public access to an opinion of its 'legal service' on the proposed EU directive on adequate minimum wages. The Council granted access to only parts of the opinion in May 2021. It invoked an exception under the EU legislation on public access to documents to justify redacting information in the document, arguing that full disclosure could undermine a decision-making procedure (still ongoing at the time) and the related legal advice.

The Ombudsman opened an inquiry and sought to inspect the document.
