Alexandre Benalla’s Time at the EPO, in His Own Words

Posted in Europe, Patents at 11:40 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: The last video of a series [1, 2, 3]; this final part shows Benalla’s remarks on entering the European Patent Office (EPO); these 4 short videos are extracted from the first audition of Benalla in front of the French Senate. The shorter passages are all extracted from the widely available video “En intégralité, laudition dAlexandre Benalla devant la commission”

Video: Alexandre Benalla Explains His Activities Within the European Patent Office

Posted in Europe, Patents at 11:31 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: Following previous video footage in which Benalla spoke about his career kick-starter, the European Patent Office (EPO), we now have another video (in French, English subtitles may come soon)


Background:

Bruno Retailleau on Alexandre Benalla’s Perjury

Posted in Europe, Patents at 3:45 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Benalla in prison for “abusive and perhaps fraudulent use of his diplomatic passports, violence against demonstrators, a number of lies, there is now a contract with a Russian oligarch,” says French media

Old Ball and Chain

Summary: Repeated violations of the law (some more severe than others) have landed Benalla in prison, but those who facilitated if not encouraged these violations continue to walk free and flee the media’s radar

In part 1 and in part 2 of this “Benalla in prison” series (there are also videos [1, 2], with several more on the way) we urged the EPO‘s President, António Campinos, to take action. If he wants to show that things are changing at the EPO, former and some existing top-level officials will need to be charged or at least investigated in connection with Benalla’s crimes. Is it always ‘low-level’ people who are subjected to the rule of law, whereas their bosses enjoy immunity and can thus act with impunity? On many occasions we saw Battistelli doing illegal things, ruining people’s lives if not ending these lives.

Here is the latest (and for the time being last) translation, tied to this article with a video (in French):

Alexandre Benalla suspected of false testimony before the Senate: “I don’t see how there can’t be perjury”, says Bruno Retailleau

Bruno Retailleau believes that the former Elysée head of mission lied under oath during his hearings before the Senate Inquiry Committee.

INTERVIEW

Alexandre Benalla spent the night in prison. The former bodyguard is accused of having violated his judicial control by meeting his colleague Vincent Crase. But he may also still have to report to the Senate, as the Senate Inquiry Committee plans to prosecute him for “perjury”. “I don’t see how there can’t be perjury,” Bruno Retailleau, the president of the LR group in the Senate, reacted on Wednesday and told Audrey Crespo-Mara on Europe 1.

“We are intractable.” The two hearings of the former Elysée head of mission (the first in September and the second in January) revealed inconsistencies in his responses to senators. “We are intractable,” asserts Bruno Retailleau. “We had a medical professor convicted a year ago, over a story about a Inquiry Commission on Air Pollution. He lied under oath. Every time we take to the court, and I don’t see how the Law Commission could overlook that rule,” continues the Senator from Vendée.

A prosecution case. Alexandre Benalla was remanded in custody at the Santé prison on Tuesday following Mediapart’s disclosure, at the end of January, of clandestine recordings of a conversation between him and Vincent Crase, after the courts prohibited them from contacting each other in connection with the 1 May violence case. Alexandre Benalla’s lawyer immediately denounced the severity of the judicial system. “He has nevertheless accumulated many things: abusive and perhaps fraudulent use of his diplomatic passports, violence against demonstrators, a number of lies, there is now a contract with a Russian oligarch,” recalls Bruno Retailleau. And to conclude: “Don’t you think that’s a lot for an ordinary citizen?”

Video: Alexandre Benalla on Carrying Weapons in Munich’s EPO Premises (Strictly Illegal in Germany)

Posted in Europe, Patents at 3:26 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“The whole Team Battistelli should really join Benalla in jail.”

Summary: The illegality of Benalla’s presence at the EPO is another ‘Benallagate’ (in its own right, putting Macron and French politics aside)

THE European Patent Office (EPO) has got itself in a serious mess. We might have English subtitles for these videos some time soon, but French-speaking readers (many EPO examiners can comprehend French) don’t rely on these, so here we go again:


We have some more videos on the way. “The videos shows that Benalla,” as a source put it, “now in jail, is a great admirer of corrupt Battistelli. He also claims that he was entitled to wear a weapon with “a special authorization from the German authorities” which is of course a huge lie because, if a request was made by the EPO, the authorization was denied by the German authorities.

“All eyes on António Campinos now; will he invite investigators on-site (to study the crimes)?”“And yes, witnesses have been “convinced” by Benalla within the EPO premises for instance to leave the 10th floor, in that Benalla had shown he was wearing a weapon. The whole Team Battistelli should really join Benalla in jail.”

All eyes on António Campinos now; will he invite investigators on-site (to study the crimes)?
