I am getting an error with the embedded scan now when using Opera. I assume that is scribd’s fault, I had no problem yesterday and firefox is just fine. I’ll check later.
I promised to provide a scan of the secondary application answer (I
am sure you can find also found a draft version in English in the Council document archives):
A few quick notes:
- The Council secretariat claims that Article 15(2) TFUE, our improved citizens right to public document access under the Lisbon treaty, does not apply to ACTA and similar trade processes, even when they relate to legislative procedures as is clearly the case here, because a trade process was not of legislative nature.
- The document says that 1049/2001/EC Art 4 (1) letter a overrules even a parliament motion. I would argue that rapporteur Mr. Cashman really needs to address that. It is a common lame excuse of the Council in terms of document access. If the recast of 1049/2001/EC should have any effect it needs to clarify that provision.
- The document reveals some public details about ACTA.
- The first reply used the false provision to deny me access, now it is Art 4(1) a third intent (“international relations”).
- The Council fakes the statistics by granting me partial access but that is merely a joke as you can see.
Formally, I could go to Court now or invoke the ombudsman.
