Dear Sybren,

When you approach http://www.asktheeu.org/, please note that your request
will be public. If you want privacy, don't use it.

Regarding things you cannot get, I was refused correspondence between MEPs
and lobbyists.

A good port of call for EU FOIA expertise is
http://corporateeurope.org/ <http://corporateeurope.org/> and,
if I'm not hugely mistaking, they sued one EU institution over a FOIA
release refusal. Ask them.

Let me know how it goes. Good luck!
