Well-prepared requests for information can be a very sharp tool when fighting to get a particular documentation or piece of information. Peter Verhaeghe gives an introduction into tactical wobbing and considerations such as which law is the strongest for my topic, which authority is most likely to hold and which authority is most likely to release the information, which information to request first and which information not to request or only request later?
