EPO, Lufthansa, and the German Government – Part V: Lufthansa and Croatia Airlines Overlap

Posted in Europe, Patents, Rumour at 6:14 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

EPO, Lufthansa, and the German Government

Summary: The rumoured clandestine ownership of Croatia Airlines by Lufthansa (as discussed already in Croatian media)

THIS multi-part series has thus far shown conflicts of interest aplenty (see part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4 if new to this series). We covered the role played by Andrej Matijević and Željko Topić (EPO) in Lufthansa favourism and in the previous part we showed the connections of Tena Mišetić and Ivan Mišetić (also Lufthansa).


ENLet us not forget that a conflict of interest is the precursor to corruption. The opaque symbiosis between Croatia Airlines and Lufthansa (annexed article #15), whose links are graphically illustrated by Ivan Mišetić, opens the door to speculation and openly voiced suspicions about Lufthansa’s clandestine ownership of the Croatian airline as reported in the media in Zagreb and beyond.

But let us return to the main protagonists in the corruption affair surrounding the company Lufthansa Airplus Servicenkarten GmbH, headquartered in Neu-Isenburg, Germany. In the annexes of this article, we provide exclusive information on the company’s ownership structure (annexed document #5). As can be seen in this figure, the registered capital of the Lufthansa subsidiary is 10 million Euros. The founders are the companies Bavaria Equity Solutions GmbH from Munich and Lufthansa Commercial Holding GmbH from Cologne. The annexed document is dated 14 July 2008 and was signed by Messrs. Patrick Diemer and Klaus Busch. The latest data from the Deutsche Börse (XETRA) for the company Lufthansa AG is also provided (annexed exhibits #6 & #7).


DEWir möchten daran erinnern, daß der Interessenkonflikt Vestibüll der Korruption ist. Diese nicht transparente Symbiose zwischen Croatia Airlines und Lufthansa (#15), welche bildhaft Ivan Mišetić verbunden hat, öffnet die Möglichkeit für Spekulationen und offene Verdachte über verheimlichtes Eigentum der Lufthansa an kroatischer Luftgesellschaft und worüber Medien in Zagreb und breiter berichtet haben.

Nun denn, kehren wir zurück zu den Hauptakteuren in der Korruptionsaffäre rund um die angezeigte Firma Lufthansa Airplus Servicenkarten GmbH mit Sitz in Neu-Isenburg in Deutschland. Im Anhang dieses Textes bringen wir exklusive Informationen zu der Inhaberstruktur dieser Firma (#5). Wie man darin erkennen kann, beträgt das Grundkapital der Lufthansa’s Firma 10 Millionen Euro. Die Gründer sind die Firmen Bavaria Equity Solutions GmbH aus München und Lufthansa Commercial Holding GmbH aus Köln. Das beigelegte Dokument stammt vom 14. Juli 2008 und wurde von den Herren Patrick Diemer und Klaus Busch unterzeichnet. In festen Händen auch die neuesten Daten zu bringen mit der Deutschen Börse (XETRA) für Unternehmen Lufthansa AG (#6 & #7).

What Else is New


  1. Team UPC Excited Over Nothing, President Campinos Rarely Even Mentions UPC Anymore

    President Campinos started his term with UPC advocacy, but he has barely even mentioned the acronym since then. In fact, it seems increasingly unlikely that UPC can ever materialise with just month left before Brexit



  2. Battistelli's Bodyguard Has Been Arrested, But Battistelli Should Join Him

    Alexandre Benalla and Vincent Crase end up in prison; will French investigators bother checking Benalla's past with Battistelli as well as other Battistelli scandals (incidents of law-breaking and of corruption)?

  5. How Long Can the EPO Bend the Rules Before the Avalanche of Invalid Software Patents?

    A 35 U.S.C. § 101/SCOTUS moment in Europe will likely squash loads of abstract European Patents granted by the EPO; shouldn’t the EPO foresee this and immediately cease granting such obviously bogus patents, whose main beneficiary is a bunch of patent trolls?



  6. Battistelli Trashed 223 Millions (of Stakeholders' Euros) on a System That Destroyed the European Patent Office and Made Few Private Corporations a Lot Richer

    A quarter of a billion euros later the EPO finally admits in private that this was a massive failure

  8. What Happened in the United States Now Happens in Europe: Lots of Patents Turn Out to Be Bunk, Fake, Bogus, Invalid and Thus Worthless

    Worthless patents — not opposition to such patents — are the greatest threat to the legitimacy of the patent system, yet bureaucrats fail to heed the warning in the name of short-term profits



  9. Stephen Rowan's and Nellie Simon's Letter to EPO Staff: eDossier Has “Not Reached the Required Quality Levels.”

    We've just commented on it; here is the raw letter in full, explaining that eDossier and related frameworks will be abandoned entirely and indefinitely within less than a fortnight



  10. Search Matters Not at the European Patent Office

    The EPO has found out that "System Battistelli" has been catastrophic for the quality of patents; it stops short of openly admitting it as such and in fact it keeps the message strictly confidential (explained to insiders, who will inevitably notice a system being abandoned)



  11. António Campinos Still Needs to Undo Battistelli's Union-Busting Activities at the EPO

    Solidarity and support for Laurent Prunier are needed because the new French president lacks empathy even for fellow Frenchmen whose sole 'crime' is that they represented EPO staff

  13. António Campinos Still Needs to Hold Team Battistelli Accountable for Illegally Bringing Weapons to the EPO

    It is imperative that, in order to repair the reputation of the European Patent Office (EPO), António Campinos should pursue accountability for the managers who brought Benalla and firearms to the Office (very serious breach of German law, jail sentence included)

  15. Amazon's Patent Policy Should be Enough of a Reason to Boycott Amazon and AWS

    There are many things to criticise Amazon and its founder for; but rarely does the mainstream media bring up the company's appalling patent policy



  16. Don't Use Cloudflare Because You Impose This on People Who Least Want It

    Reasons to stop making the World Wide Web so heavily dependent on some dubious companies like Cloudflare, which already has a worrisome track record



  17. How Many/Most EPO Examiners View 'President' António Campinos

    Based on what readers/insiders have told us, there’s a prevalent perception that António Campinos is afraid of (thus controlled/directed by) Bergot, who is still doing Battistelli’s biddings at the European Patent Office (EPO)



  18. Techrights' Priorities Over the Years

    An old priority of ours, eliminating software patents in the United States, is no longer quite so relevant because such patents are perishing in US courts, with or without outside intervention such as activism



  19. Courts in Disagreement: Warning on Wrongly-Granted European Patents and the Looming Collapse of All Software Patents in Europe

    By devaluing patents and reducing their perceived worth (as is happening in China and Europe) patent offices risk decreasing participation in the very system they fundamentally depend on



  20. Computing Will Not Necessarily Make the World a Better Place

    The vision of "happy world" (because each person has a so-called 'smart' 'phone') is a yuppie delusion that overlooks business models and corporate interests



  21. EPO Grants Fake European Patents -- Including Software Patents -- and European Courts Keep Rejecting These

    The demise of the legitimacy or perceived validity of European Patents is measurable and the system isn't the same anymore; the EPO makes no effort to change this for the better, either



  22. Nobody But Patent Trolls and Litigators Will Benefit From the Corruption of the European Patent Office

    IAM, EPO leadership, Iancu and the rest of these raiders are enabling corruption and facilitating or supporting a racket; that money they collect comes at the expense of future victims of their "clients" or "customers" (that's what they call applicants, to whom they grant dubious monopolies as a matter of urgency)



  23. WSL is a Misleading Acronym/Name Because There's No Linux in It, It's Just Windows

    When Microsoft says "Linux" (as in "Microsoft loves Linux") what it actually means is Windows and/or Azure

  28. “EPO Lawlessness Again”

    Blackberry uses bogus European Patents (on software) for lawsuits; "all of them pure software patents. Patents on programs for computers as such," as Müller puts it



  29. Unitary Patent (UPC) is All About Imposing Patent Maximalists' Ideology of Greed and Self Interest on Courts in the Name of 'Unification' or 'Consistency' or 'Community'

    Pushers of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) are upset that they don’t always get their way when independent judges get to decide; as it turns out, many European Patents are just fake patents, more so under António Campinos



  30. Battistelli's Bodyguard, Part V: Mediapart Explains the 'Raid' Attempt, Reporters Without Borders Involved

    Mediapart, an investigative site that unearths a lot of incriminating things about Battistelli's former bodyguard Alexandre Benalla, was the target of a raid attempt some weeks ago
