Bonum Certa Men Certa

Not Just Three (or Even Six) EPO Staff Representatives Under Attack

Eliminating/purging the messengers, banning disclosure of this purge

Phone silence



Summary: Attempts to silence staff of the EPO are more widespread than is generally known to EPO staff

THE EPO -- surprise surprise! -- is not an ordinary institution. It's secretive, it lies (a lot, at the highest level), and it breaks the rules as if none exist.



One important point which is worth making/stressing right now is that EPO staff has been kept in the dark and a lot of staff doesn't quite realise how bad things really are. There is a reality distortion field, so to speak. Several people whom we spoke to make this ever more evident. "On another subject," told us one source, "the details [about suspensions] began to reach me with urgency as soon as it happened. I was told the names of the parties involved, and the shocking treatment of the colleagues at The Hague, with whom I was acquainted, but I didn't quite know what to do with the information because I couldn't reveal the names of the parties [Jesús Areso, Laurent Prunier, Malika Weaver, Brumme, Michels]." Then there's the case against Elizabeth Hardon.

Techrights is aware of other affected parties. The EPO does not want anyone to know about this. We predict that later this month a new scandal will be revealed and surface in the press, as the EPO's gagging efforts non-disclosure agreement equivalent) will become increasingly ineffective. There's explosive stuff waiting to break out.

“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”

--Thomas Jefferson
