Charles Tannock - when will you have a meeting with us????
AFTER MANY LETTERS FROM OUR GROUP AND EVEN THE LETTER BELOW FROM ONE OF HIS FELLOW MEPs, MR TANNOCK AND MR DANIEL HANNON HAVE REFUSED TO HAVE A MEETING WITH US OR EVEN REPLY TO OUR LETTERS, TWEETS AND EMAILS!!!
As I think the Ambassador has previously informed you, we continually bring this up with the Cape Verdean authorities when we have the occasion to do so on our visits to Cape Verde. I was in fact in Cape Verde last week, and discussed the issue with key interlocutors there, including senior contacts within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as with the Head of the EU Delegation and the Head of the European Investment Agency for Cape Verde.
We will continue to raise the issue wherever we can, e.g. the Ambassador is due to call the Foreign Minister shortly, and this will be one of his points to make. I have also offered to brief the MEP Charles Tannock, prior to or after his visit to Cape Verde, and would certainly raise this issue.
