EPO’s Elodie Bergot Calls Staff Suicide Just ‘Passing Away’, Pretends to Care

EPO on suicide

Summary: How the EPO continues to mislead if not lie to staff, even when staff commits suicide — a growing problem for Team Battistelli, whom some insiders hold accountable for these deaths

THERE have been many suicides associated with the EPO (more than the management cares to admit) and a televised programme already linked at least some of them to the reign of terror.

The EPO’s official “news” section, Battistelli’s “blog” and so on are mum on the latest incident, resorting instead to mass distraction. The EPO has been saying almost nothing substantial in Twitter for almost two days now! At all! This is atypical. It’s often active even during weekends (at a lower capacity). So what is going on?

Blackout.

“The EPO has been saying almost nothing substantial in Twitter for almost two days now!”Not only have they said nothing about the UPC barriers in Germany, but they are saying absolutely nothing about an important incident. Remember when someone jumped out the window during working hours? Well, the EPO’s management denied the national/local authorities even access to the site for investigation. One might expect this in Russia or in China, not rich cities in Germany or the Netherlands. Well, the puff pieces continue to flow in, distracting from the real news. See Wednesday’s “news” about the EPO [1, 2]. Despicable distraction, sometimes paid for by the EPO. What about legal press? Well, published in the German media was this new piece about the Constitutional complaint against the UPC. Siegfried Broß, a retired judge who famously compared — on German television and elsewhere — the EPO under Battistelli to Guantánamo Bay (a torture camp) and occasionally combats the UPC on Constitutional grounds, once again emerges.

“At the EPO, the above message was circulated by Elodie Bergot, the wife of Battistelli’s friend.”But nowhere can one find information about an untimely death. At the EPO, the above message was circulated by Elodie Bergot, the wife of Battistelli’s friend. She leaves out one very important detail: it was a suicide, the latest one of many. Lie by omission? That wouldn’t be the first from Team Battistelli.

Either way, we did not want to publish any personal details or something substantial about the incident, but the details are already trickling out through social media, comments, etc. That’s just the nature of the Internet nowadays. IP Kat had a comment posted yesterday, after people had sent messages to us and gave us more details (we chose not to publish these because of the grieving family). “New suicide at EPO: male examiner in his 50s, one kid,” said the first comment, soon to be followed by: “It seems that it was a UK national this time. Maybe the UK delegation will finally start to wake up…”

We assume many people already speak about this, so our wishes to suppress personal information would not be successful anyway. Elodie Bergot tactlessly named the person, telling all staff about what they already knew (or will soon know) was suicide.

To be fair, Sean Dennehey (head of the UK delegation until recently), unlike his predecessor, did antagonise Battistelli's proposals and we certainly hope that his successor, Tim Moss, will do the same next week and onwards. Battistelli has a lot of “blood on his hands” (so to speak) and he needs to go immediately. The man is acting like a gangster, not a charismatic boss, and his surname too is associated with the Mafia where he came from. Inside the Office he is treated like a leper to stay away from.

“Battistelli has a lot of “blood on his hands” (so to speak) and he needs to go immediately.”Take note of this latest that says, “as indicated earlier today, another of our colleagues committed suicide yesterday. This is the fifth colleague in a few years. How many of us will die or be ill for months or the rest of their life before this regime ends? When will the outside world firmly condemn what is happening? Merpel, that also means reporting on the situation to inform the public. Remaining silent when people die is not the best way to show support.”

Another one added: “IPKat fluff filter malfunction or is someone trying to suppress the fact that the most recent EPO suicide was a British national?”

As we pointed out several times so far this year (e.g. [1, 2]), post-Merpel IP Kat is actively helping Battistelli, not just with the UPC push.

“As experts have repeatedly pointed out, it can’t be excused as just routine or statistically normal; the number of suicides at the EPO is disproportionately high and it grew by about one order of magnitude under Battistelli.”For people who wish to know more details, we have blurred the above public message to protect identities. It shows how the EPO reported this to staff. What the EPO did not bother telling staff is that this examiner committed suicide (it happened in Munich, by jumping under a train).

Apparently that’s just the kind of effect the Battistelli regime may have on people. As experts have repeatedly pointed out, it can’t be excused as just routine or statistically normal; the number of suicides at the EPO is disproportionately high and it grew by about one order of magnitude under Battistelli. A tenfold increase is not ignorable. Given the mental torture which is prevalent under Battistelli and has been thoroughly documented over the years, culpability too may be provable (if there was no immunity).

    Let’s all remember that as the EPO‘s so-called ‘President’ António Campinos (Monopoly Tony) vigorously defended completely unlawful actions of Benoît Battistelli until courts compelled him to stop doing that (Strike Regulations); notice how, in the video above — a portion of this full clip from several months ago — he did not bother mentioning that for 3.5 years that he had “led” the Office the Boards of Appeal were in exile, in direct violation of the EPC, yet nobody is being held accountable for it

  27. EPO Eating Its Own (and Robbing Its Own)

    António Campinos is lying to his staff and losing his temper when challenged about it; Like Benoît Battistelli, who ‘fixed’ this job for his banker buddy (despite a clear lack of qualifications and relevant experience), he’s just robbing the EPO’s staff (even pensioners!) and scrubbing the EPC for ill-gotten money, which is in turn illegally funneled into financialization schemes



  28. [Meme] EPO Budget Tanking?

    While the EPO‘s António Campinos incites people (and politicians) to break the law he’s also attacking, robbing, and lying to his own staff; thankfully, his staff isn’t gullible enough and some MEPs are sympathetic; soon to follow is a video and publication about the EPO’s systematic plunder (ETA midnight GMT)



  29. EPO.org (Official EPO Site) Continues to Promote Illegal Agenda and Exploit Ukraine for PR Stunts That Help Unaccountable Crooks

    epo.org has been turned into a non-stop propaganda machine of Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos because the EPO routinely breaks the law; it’s rather tasteless that while Ukrainians are dying the EPO’s mob exploits Ukraine for PR purposes



  30. [Meme] EPO Applicants Unwittingly Fund the War on Ukraine

    As we’ve just shown, António Campinos is desperately trying to hide a massive EPO scandal
