How to retrieve historical news data from Refinitiv over a long time (for example 10 years) via API in Python?

How to retrieve historical news data from SMI over a long time (for example 10 years) via API in Python? If I use the proposed Python Code: NEWS = ek.get_news_headlines('R:.SSMI AND Language:LEN', date_to = "2012-12-31", count=100) NEWS.head(100) I can not get news data from 2012 for example. Is there an index error or how can we get this data?
