Alexandre Benalla, Macron’s Violent Bodyguard, Was Also Battistelli’s Bodyguard

Posted in Europe, Patents at 12:35 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“Affaire Benalla et OEB: Benalla a travaillé pour Battistelli”

Battistelli and Benalla

Summary: Dots are being connected and a major controversy in French politics turns out to be connected (or lead) to Battistelli, the EPO’s thug who surrounded himself by other thugs

SEVERAL readers have independently informed us that the man who appeared in Battistelli's bizarre piece from 2 years ago (never mind the infamous diversity spin) wasn’t just some arbitrary person; we didn’t mention at the time and we have since then received a more recent/fresher copy (above), but Benalla is no stranger to Battistelli and the EPO.

I personally cannot read French, but some readers who can have sent us valuable input.

Writing about La French decadence, one reader said that “if you observe the recent developments of French politics, you might have noticed a stunning similarly between la methode Battistelli and la methode Macron. There is nothing astonishing because both graduated from the ENA. All French media are now busy with the Benalla affair.”

“…stunning similarly between la methode Battistelli and la methode Macron. There is nothing astonishing because both graduated from the ENA.”

Several people now link to this article. “It is in French,” the reader said, “however highly relevant.” The key part: “On retrouve ensuite l’ancien gamin d’Evreux à Munich, au siège de l’Office européen des brevets (OEB). Entre novembre 2015 et novembre 2016, cette institution dépendant de l’Union européenne fait appel aux services d’une société de sécurité domiciliée au Luxembourg et dirigée par deux anciens militaires français, Sigma 3D Security Services. C’est dans ce cadre que Benalla devient garde du corps du président de l’OEB, le Français Benoît Battistelli. L’atmosphère est lourde à l’OEB. Les collaborateurs reprochent au président son autoritarisme. Le président, lui, se croit menacé de mort. Sur son CV, Benalla gonfle une nouvelle fois ses fonctions : le simple prestataire de services devient « fonctionnaire international ».”

In English: “Then we find the former kid from Evreux (Benalla) in Munich, at the headquarters of the European Patent Office (EPO).” Between November 2015 and November 2016, this institution dependent on the European Union uses the services of a company headquartered in Luxembourg and led by two former French soldiers, Sigma 3D Security Services, Benalla becomes the bodyguard of the EPO President, Benoît Battistelli, in France. EPO employees blame the president for his authoritarianism, but the president feels threatened with death. On his CV, Benalla boosts again its functions: the simple service provider becomes “international civil servant”.”

Immunity? For violent thugs, too?

“Many people talk about it at this very moment and it’s an opportunity for French media to pay closer attention, follow some leads, and learn about Battistelli’s corruption and sheer injustice at the EPO.”“We were lucky not to cross Benalla at the office,” one reader said, “but it illustrates the type of thugs that Battistelli (maybe via the Colonel) used at the EPO….”

Or another take (in French): “Nous avons eu de la chance de ne pas le croiser….par contre cela illustre le type d’officines que Battistelli (peut être via la Colonel) a employé à l’OEB…”

Many people talk about it at this very moment and it’s an opportunity for French media to pay closer attention, follow some leads, and learn about Battistelli’s corruption and sheer injustice at the EPO.

We’ve only learned about that very recently (some hours ago). Any more information on this? Documents other than the internal communications (published in the intranet in 2016)? Let us know, dear readers, because surely there’s lots more to be found somewhere. The man spent a lot of time at the EPO, maybe on a semi-clandestine basis. Is it a patent office or barracks? Who was threatened? Who was made immune?

  2. António Campinos Promotes Software Patents Using Buzzwords and Sketchy Loopholes With Dubious Legal Basis

    ‘Monopoly Tony’ (António Campinos) is shamelessly manipulating EPO processes at both ends (sender and receiver) to facilitate the illegal granting of invalid European software patents; we’re meant to think this former EU official and imposter (banker) is some guru in the sciences because he reads a lousy speech crafted for him with lots of meaningless buzzwords peppered all over it (he’s not good at reading it, either)

    Today’s video runs through the typical (weekly) lies from Team UPC — lies that are very easy to debunk; Team UPC not only drafted the thing but also looks to profit from it while misleading politicians and bribing publishers to spread intentionally misleading statements (lies)

    The UPC will come “next year”, just like every year (since almost a decade ago) just because the lunatic promises so and crushes the law, quite frankly as usual, cusioned and protected by the UPC lobby

    Assuming that Lupa reduced its crawling capacity (this graph seems to confirm this), we’ve decided to aggregate data from 3 sources and assess the size of Geminispace; Lupa says it can see 1,947 active capsules, but there are many more it has not kept track of

  15. It Took Campinos Three or More Years to Undo Illegal Battistelli Actions on Boards of Appeal and Strike Regulations (Only After Losing at ILO-AT!), But He Does Not Mention That

    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
