Farmsubsidy.org, the pro-transparency group of journalists and activists, meeting at the Data Harvest in Brussels this week, has expressed its dismay at the reversal of transparency in EU funds.
Denmark will tell who gets what farmsubsidies from the EU – to all those who ask. Finland and Sweden have taken the same approach.
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.
Will the public be held in the paper ages, while the EU administration is moving on to modern electronic administration?
