The Sickness of the EPO – Part VIII: Allegations That the EPO Has No Honest Doctors, Only ‘Fake’ Ones Subservient to Team Battistelli

Posted in Europe, Patents at 5:42 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

International institutions with their own secret services and medics who are subservient to a ‘king’

Old medical items

Summary: Growing concern about a new class of doctors whose ‘skills’ seem to be loyalty or obedience to monarchs (exploiting illness for political objectives) rather than dedication to patients

THE one of many disturbing aspects and fiascos at the EPO is exploitation of illnesses (of staff and/or their families). We’ve been running a whole series dedicated to that. Another related aspect is, there is no sense of medical/health assessment at the EPO, just as there is no justice. At all.

Various readers have over the years complained about this. There is clearly a serious issue right there. “I’ll provide you with a comprehensive list of names of these “cooperating servants” serving in the OHS and Personal department,” a reader once told us. It seems like these people have already built quite a negative reputation inside the EPO, but as usual, everyone is afraid to talk about it.

“It seems like these people have already built quite a negative reputation inside the EPO, but as usual, everyone is afraid to talk about it.”We are still waiting patiently for an opportunity to expose everything that we know without compromising sources. It’s not easy.

“This is a very sensitive topic,” one source once told us. “As far as I remember I had a list with all/some external doctors whose authority in medical matters was questionable.”

Just look at the EPO’s own management. A lot of it is not qualified to run the Office; their main skill is kinship, loyalty to Battistelli, or various forms of nepotism. It has become a hallmark of the Battistelli era.

“Just look at the EPO’s own management. A lot of it is not qualified to run the Office; their main skill is kinship, loyalty to Battistelli, or various forms of nepotism.”One person’s name keeps standing out. Albert Koopman. We might as well speak about him.

“Of course,” a source once explained to us, “there is the most famous one: Dr. Koopman, a Dutchman, previously wit the ESA, European Space Agency, in Noordwijk, NL.”

We keep seeing his name in all sorts of places (even heard of him more than a year ago). Here is one example:

Dr. Koopman

“This doctor,” someone explained to us, “was first appointed [at] about 2005 to replace independent doctors (e.g. Dr. Fleck) from the official local health services in Munich that were in charge to assess extended sick leave or invalidity. Apparently Dr. Fleck was too “staff friendly”… Even if the age of retirement at the EPO is “compulsory” 68 on “mutual agreement”, Dr. Koopman was asked to retire with 65 against his own wish. He was one of the “cooperative servants” expecting some kind of reward for the “dynamic management of health and risks”. The only reward he became was one-finger salute.”

As we pointed out before, Koopman left in 2014 and he is part of a system of people who have allegedly abused staff and mistreated vulnerable people.

Last year we published this letter that said: “On 24 March 2016 you announced on the Intranet the appointment of Ms Raffaella de Greiff as new Director Health and Safety with effect from 1 April 2016, this after serving as ad interim Director of one of the two EPO medical departments since Dr Koopman retired almost two years ago. Ms de Greiff has a degree in “industrial relations” but no medical qualification.”

“Hopefully, by the time we are done leaking new information, the world will generally understand just how cruel a place the EPO has become. It has turned perfectly healthy people into zombies.”A source explained, regarding the ridicule, that “the same will apply to all “willing servants” who expect any recognition from the Office. The most blatant and recent example is Guillaume Minnoye. Who will be next? The second Merdaci sister?” (alluding to Nadja Merdaci-Lefèvre)

Readers can expect us to dive deeper into these matters. Staff representatives habitually talk about issues pertaining to health at the Office, but rarely do they mention names or personal stories (while protecting confidentiality of subjects). Hopefully, by the time we are done leaking new information, the world will generally understand just how cruel a place the EPO has become. It has turned perfectly healthy people into zombies.
