EPO Investigative Unit Causes “Trauma, Will Ruin the Health or Even the Family”

Posted in Europe, Patents at 6:12 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Ion Brumme’s alleged ‘crime’ is that he invited people to join the staff union

Summary: Staff representative gives details in an intervention, offering a personal testimony about the work of the “investigation/investigative unit” (IU) at the EPO

THE EPO, or Eponia which acts as though it’s a state with ‘intelligence agencies’, ‘courts’ and ‘security’ personnel (private bodyguards who are grossly overpaid), operates a secretive (mental) torture chamber called the Investigative Unit. We wrote about it last year [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] and explained how it had come into existence before Battistelli turned it into something to be expected from East Germany under Soviet occupation.

Here is a recent statement about what happens inside the Investigative Unit and what it did to Ion Brumme (above) among others because they ‘dared’ to sign people up for SUEPO, the Staff Union of the EPO. In French (original):

« Je ne cesse d’entendre que nous ne sommes pas là aujourd’hui pour discuter de cas individuels. Les cas de Ion Brumme et Malika Weaver sont pourtant exemplaires. Ce sont des représentants du personnel, sanctionnés dans l’exercice de leurs fonctions de représentants du personnel. Cela concerne tout le personnel. Le personnel a le droit de savoir. Si je suis dans cette salle aujourd’hui, ce n’est que contraint et forcé. Mon collègue Ion Brumme a été licencié et, ma collègue Malika Weaver ne pouvait être là aujourd’hui. Elle est fortement atteinte pas sa sanction de rétrogradation. Je la remplace.

La plupart d’entre vous assis en face de moi n’ont jamais vu comment se déroule un interrogatoire de l’unité d’investigation. Vous ne savez pas. Nous, à la représentation du personnel, on a vu, on a subi, on sait. C’est un traumatisme. Cela ruine la santé, voire la famille également. Le texte des Circulaires 341 et 342 qui est sous nos yeux aujourd’hui donne encore plus de pouvoir à cette unité d’investigation. Plus de pouvoir, ne veut pas dire, plus d’indépendance, bien au contraire. A l’heure où le Board 28 cherche à calmer la situation sociale, l’administration de l’office propose un texte aujourd’hui encore plus répressif.

J’aimerais attirer votre attention sur l’article 2 définissant le misconduct. Je vois que l’élément (n) qualifie de misconduct le fait d’enfreindre de manière manifestement intentionelle ou négligente une loi nationale. Je ne peux m’empêcher de penser à un membre du personnel de l’office, qui, sans doute avec la collusion de plusieurs, a ignoré un jugement de la Cour d’Appel de La Haye – l’intéressé allant jusqu’à dire que “les juges ont commis une erreur”. Naturellement, l’intéressé bénéficie de l’immunité de l’office et de plus, c’est maintenant écrit, ne peut faire l’objet d’une enquête par l’unité d’investigation. Cette caractéristique du texte symbolise en somme tout le cynisme de la démarche de l’administration de l’office. Cynisme qui s’est encore manifesté vendredi dernier.

Le Board 28 avait pourtant demandé à l’administration de l’office de calmer la situation sociale. Et vendredi dernier, on apprend que mon collègue Ion Brumme voit son licenciement confirmé, et ma collègue Malika Weaver, reste rétrogradée.

Je pense à eux. Je pense beaucoup à eux. Et aujourd’hui c’est le lieu pour en parler. »

Here is an automated translation:

“I keep hearing that we’re not here today to discuss individual cases. The case of Ion Brumme and Malika Weaver are copies. They are representatives, sanctioned in the performance of their duties staff representatives. This concerns all staff. The staff has the right to know. If I am in this room today, it is only under duress. My colleague Ion Brumme was dismissed and my colleague Malika Weaver could not be here today. It is strongly not reached his demotion penalty. I replaced.

Most of you sitting in front of me have never seen what happens during an examination of the investigative unit. You do not know. We, the staff representation, we saw, we suffered, we know. It’s trauma. This will ruin the health or even the family. The text Circulars 341 and 342 that is before us today still gives more power to the investigative unit. More power, not to say, more independence, quite the contrary. At a time when the Board 28 seeks to ease the social situation, the administration of the office offers a text even more repressive today.

I would like to draw your attention to Article 2 defines the misconduct. I see that the element (n) refers to the fact misconduct violate grossly negligent or intentional way a national law. I cannot help thinking of a member of the office staff, which, no doubt with many of collusion, ignored a judgment of the Court of Appeal Hague – the person up to say that “the judges made a mistake.” Naturally, the person enjoys immunity from office and more, it is now written, cannot be investigated by the investigation unit. This feature of the text symbolizes in short all the cynicism of the process of the administration of the office. Cynicism that has yet appeared last Friday.

The Board 28 had however asked the administration of the office to calm the social situation. And last Friday, we learned that my colleague Ion Brumme confirmed sees his dismissal, and my colleague Malika Weaver, left demoted.

I think of them. I think a lot of them. And today it is the place to discuss it.”

Accompanying text described the above as: “Intervention made by an elected Staff representative during the GCC of the 13.06.2106, dealing with Review of the disciplinary procedures framework and of Articles 52 and 53 ServRegs and the Revision of Investigation framework called Standards of conduct and administrative “fact findings” – while a spontaneous Staff Demonstration was taking place simultaneously outside against the President decision to confirm the disciplinary measures against Malika Weaver and Ion Brumme, former high ranking officials from SUEPO Munich.”

“Battistelli fancies himself a judge (and accuser, jury, and executioner) against a real judge, making up a ‘legal’ process (never-ending series of tiring show ‘trials’) and fabricating evidence to defame a judge who actually used legitimate evidence and is being punished for it.”It is worth noting that we have heard about the impact on the judge’s wife (the one who is on ‘house ban’) and we previously wrote about the spouse of Jesus getting affected (in relation to the attack on staff representatives at The Hague). This is totally unacceptable. It’s quite obviously a breach of human rights (though a human rights lawyer would be needed to lay out the specifics). It’s outrageous, but the EPO (or Eponia) does not care what the law says. It would even disregard the highest courts at The Hague (not obeying judges’ orders), by its very own admission. A later article will deal with the judge’s case.

Battistelli fancies himself a judge (and accuser, jury, and executioner) against a real judge, making up a ‘legal’ process (never-ending series of tiring show 'trials') and fabricating evidence to defame a judge who actually used legitimate evidence and is being punished for it.

    Free software projects and Free software developers have long been humiliated by corporations of Western misogynists, falsely claiming that the Free software community isn’t inclusive enough (these are shameless projection tactics; as a matter of public record, the exact opposite is true) and even the eradication of supposedly offensive language isn’t something IBM takes seriously

    Linux/Android/Free Software/GNU (they go by very many names/brands) may continue to grow to the point where Windows is as irrelevant as Blackberry; this means that Microsoft’s grip on the Web too has slipped — to the point where Microsoft frantically uses 'bailout' money to hijack LinkedIn, GitHub, etc. (it also rebrands almost everything as "Azure" or clown to fake a perception of growth)
