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?

  1. As Expected, the Bill Gates Propaganda Machine is Trying to Throw/Put Everyone off the Scent of Jeffery Epstein's 'Incestuous' Ties With Gates

    Media ownership up on display; it's amplifying false claims for a whole month, whereas truth/correct information gets buried before a weekend is over

  7. No Calls to "Remove Gates" From the Board (Over a Real Scandal/Crime), Only to "Remove Stallman" (Over Phony Distraction From the Former)

    Jeffrey Epstein's connections to Bill Gates extend well beyond Gates himself; other people inside Microsoft are closely involved as well, so Microsoft might want to cut ties with its co-founder before it becomes a very major mess



  8. “The Stupidest [Patent/Tax] Policy Ever”

    It’s pretty clear that today’s European patent system has been tilted grossly in favour of super-rich monopolists and their facilitators (overzealous law firms and ‘creative’ accountants) as opposed to scientists

    The media is belatedly catching up with and covering the real MIT scandal which extends far beyond MIT



  22. Openwashing Reports Are on Hold

    The need to stress Software Freedom and shun all that "open" nonsense has quickly become apparent; some of the people who oppose Stallman turn out to be "Open Source" proponents who don't even value freedom of expression (free speech)



  23. Support the GNU Project and Support Free Speech

    Techrights is loyal to Software Freedom and those eager to promote it; it cannot, however, support those who don’t support free speech



  24. Today's EPO is Working for Patent Trolls and the 'Aye Pee' (IP) 'Industry' Instead of Science

    The EPO is making allegiances and alliances with groups that represent neither science nor businesses but instead push for monopolies, litigation and extortion; lawlessness appears to have become the EPO's very objective instead of what it intends to tackle



  25. The Campinos Car Crash

    The EPO is crashing and we know who’s to blame other than Battistelli



  26. Software Patents (or Monopolies on Algorithms) Are Not 'Property' and They're Not Even Legally Valid

    The EPO insists that it's OK to grant patents on just about everything and propaganda terms are being leveraged to justify this dangerous attitude



  27. The EPO's Universal Patent Injustice Concealed With Polyglottic Tricks

    The EPO is fooling nobody; it's desperate to hide the very simple fact that Battistelli did something illegal and over the past few years every decision issued by the EPO was legally invalid (as per the EPC)
