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?

What Else is New


  1. Reminder: Vice Chair of the Linux Foundation's Board is an Oracle Executive Who Used to Work for Microsoft

    The Linux Foundation issued statements to the effect of opposing Donald Trump, but its current leadership (people from companies like Oracle, Microsoft and IBM) is a strong proponent of doing as much business as possible with Trump (even in violation of international law)



  2. [Meme] How to Hijack Linux and Free Software to Make Them Proprietary and Microsoft-Controlled

    Intel keeps outsourcing almost everything (that's not proprietary with back doors, e.g. ME) to Microsoft's proprietary software prison, known as GitHub; to make matters worse, Intel now uses the Microsoft-hosted Rust to develop in Microsoft servers, along with Microsoft, code that promotes Microsoft proprietary software (e.g. Hyper-V) and non-standard 'extensions'.



  3. DDOS Attacks Against Us Lately

    (Distributed) Denial-of-service attacks or DDOS attacks have slowed down the site, but we treat that as evidence of suppression and fear (of what's to come and what was recently published), or accuracy (in reporting) rather than inaccuracy



  4. [Meme] Windows as Dead Man Walking (Patches Accelerate the Death)

    Microsoft is squeezing whatever life is left in its “burning platform” (which is already exceeded in terms of market share by Android) that has a "burning" (bricked) WSL with barely any users and plenty of critical problems



  5. We Let Them Get Away With Murder, But They Make up for It by Banning Words

    The Microsoft propaganda machines (notably ZDNet this weekend) are busy portraying Microsoft as a “good company” for censoring words, never mind the actual, meaningful, substantial actions of Microsoft, which is boosting authoritarian people who imprison even babies (for the ‘crime’ of being on the ‘wrong’ side of the border)



  6. High-Profile and Invalid (Invalidated) European Patents Harm the Presumption of Validity of European Patents

    The EPO's 'printing machine' (over-producing patent monopolies) is harming the legal certainty associated with such patents, helping nobody but deep-pocketed monopolists and law firms



  7. Epitaph for (Death of) Patent-Centric Media: Litigation Giant Bird & Bird Nowadays Doing Ads as 'Podcasts' in Think Tank Site 'Managing IP'

    Publishers don't hesitate and openly revel in taking bribes as if it's a badge of honour or importance, allowing themselves to be profoundly corrupted in pursuit of quick cash; we discuss what's happening in sites that pretend to cover patent news (but actually drive agenda of litigation giants, to the detriment of actual innovators)

  11. [Meme] Microsoft Downtime... Now in 'Linux' (Wait a Month for Microsoft to Restore Uptime)

    Microsoft’s utter failure that is "WSL2" is bringing the failures Windows is so notorious for (loss of work, lack of security, fatal patches) to so-called ‘Linux’; the timeframe for a fix says a lot about just how much Microsoft “loves” Linux…



  12. Coming Soon: Microsoft Leaks (Which Microsoft Pressured Medium to Suppress and Promptly Unpublish)

    Microsoft is no ordinary company; exposing it is like dealing with the Mafia or some drug cartel in Mexico, but we're able to publish truths about Microsoft nonetheless (their notorious intimidation and silencing attempts have always failed against us)

  18. ZDNet's 'Linux' Section Isn't About Linux But About Microsoft

    ZDNet's so-called 'Linux' section isn't really about GNU/Linux; it's just the site's usual Microsoft propaganda, bought and paid for by Microsoft

  22. [Meme] You Cannot Elect/Vote Corporations Out of Power (Eternal Vigilance is Required)

    Based on early polls, Biden will be president-elect in about a month and a half; but it’s important to remember that the election (if honoured by the current tenant of the White House) won’t be the end of corporate abuse of power in the same sense that driving Microsoft out of business won’t miraculously mean that Free software ‘won’ (we have a lot more to confront still)

    Richard Stallman's (RMS) principled views regarding software go back to the days of zeroes and ones; his position 35 years ago was almost indistinguishable from today's position

    When Free software advocacy groups are indebted to companies that greatly harm people's freedom (including privacy) we have to ask ourselves questions regarding morality and ethics because money isn't inherently evil, it depends who or where it comes from (on what implicit conditions)

  30. [Meme] Linux Foundation Does Not Represent Linux Users

    With only one truly technical person inside the Linux Foundation Board (it got a lot worse in 2020) it seems safe to call it 95%+ corporate gerrymandering with no signs of improving any time soon; it’s all about letting hostile corporations change Linux rather than allowing Linux to change the world
