Dear Friends,

The full-texts of the two Council Decision at General Affairs
yesterday are now on Statewatch News online with anaylsis and


Tony Bunyan, Statewatch editor, comments:

"These Decisions by the Council undermine the discussion on the new
code of access. The Council has used the "space" left before a new
code is adopted - whenever that will be - to protect the interests of
governments and NATO over the citizens' right to know.

The European Parliament now has to think seriously whether the Council
is going to honour the commitment in the Amsterdam Treaty and whether
it is going to be possible to find a "compromise" solution to the new
code of access which will not sell citizens, civil society and
democratic accountability down the river."
