Summary: The scorecard (or sheet) of Battistelli as per the official Code of Conduct at the European Patent Office (EPO)
The EPO‘s President, with his growing Brumme and Hardon issues, is breaking his own CoC (Code of Conduct) and we couldn’t help making a critical post which shows, point-by-point, how Battistelli breaks his CoC. Consider the following 2 pages (as one image) from the CoC:
It’s actually far too easy to see what’s wrong here. Battistelli has been a very naughty boy because (taken on a point-by-point basis):
- There is institutional harassment against workers, leading all the way up to Battistelli himself. There are many examples of that. Consider how he treats not only EPO staff but also outside lawyers, delegates, journalists, politicians and so on.
- Battistelli has the integrity of the Binay dynasty and accountability of a defunct monarch. There are dead people as living (or dead) proof of that. Again, there are dozens of other examples to demonstrate this.
- Battistelli is impartial and objective enough to ignore the Disciplinary Committees and make up his own extreme punishment, leaving 5 young children with an unemployed father.
- Rules of law don’t mean a thing to Battistelli. Look and recall what he had his minion Minnoy say explicitly to Dutch television earlier this year.
- Quality at the EPO is IAM 'magazine' fiction (it evidently declined under the clueless Battistelli, who rushes examiners for the sake of large applicants). Then, recall what professionalism Battistelli brings to the table when he escapes meetings and suffers public tantrums.
Why hasn’t Battistelli been sacked yet? A ‘house ban’ for Battistelli and his unnecessary/frivolous bodyguards is well overdue. Such a move would respect many individuals, restore some integrity, give the impression of accountability for all, would seem impartial to most workers, probably comply with the rule of law and also seem professional enough given all that Battistelli has been doing as of late.
We have a lot more coming in the weekend, so stay tuned. █
