Cross border wobbing
Information about farmsubsidies have to be made public also in Germany, a German court decided this week.
Denmark will tell who gets what farmsubsidies from the EU – to all those who ask. Finland and Sweden have taken the same approach.
The application concerned access to names and amounts of supports of EU-farmsubsidy beneficiaries in the German province of Northrine-Westphalia.
Three German organisations have written a new German wob - they call it the Citizen Information Law. The aim is to make wobbing easier.
Swedish authorities will continue to release data on EU farm subsidies in spite of the ruling by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) to ban such disclosure on the Internet.
