I have previously been published in Le Monde Afrique, IRIN News, Sydney Morning Herald, African Arguments and others. If you have questions about my media classification, please let me know and I'm happy to address them.

Dear Mr Andoh,

Thanks for your email.

In order to narrow down the request you can apply the following:
A - Restrict timeframe for points 1, 2 and 3 to 01/01/2016 to 01/01/2018.
B - For point 1, you can search for any emails containing the words "Guinea" and "sample"

I don't think that "Sandia" and "Phoenix" are common words. And so I think that the updated search terms, narrowed down timeframe and the very specific email inbox to search for those keywords provide sufficient details to permit a search with reasonable effort.

Could you confirm that this is sufficiently narrowed down for you?

If yes, I'm looking forward to receiving the documents.

Thanks in advance. Best regards,
Emmanuel

Dear Mr Andoh,
