Leaked: Battistelli Acknowledges Bunk 'Justice' in About 100 Cases at the Internal Appeals Committee of the EPO

'Damage control' from the most damaging (to the EPO) President ever!

Battistelli on Internal Appeals Committee of the EPO

Summary: A look at Battistelli's response to the latest from the International Labour Organisation (ILO), exceptionally delivering two decisions at the very end of last month

THE ILOAT recently slammed (albeit politely) the Internal Appeals Committee of the EPO. It has been a sham for a long time, the Tribunal found. This means there was no Rule of Law or justice (no functional access to real justice) at the EPO under Battistelli. Presidential decrees and legal harassment/bullying by the President turned the Office into a laughing stock all across Europe and even the world.

As expected, late on a Friday (the usual) Battistelli responded with more of the usual lies and hogwash. The EPO is experiencing a post-truth era, so why not again? The response can be seen at the top. But it's all wrong.

Note that in July of this year the EPO, in Judgment No. 3694, was already reminded of the importance of a properly-formed Internal Appeals Committee. The present formation of the Appeals Committee, with the two "volunteer" Staff Representatives, was preceded by a short period where there were no Staff Representatives on the Committee at all. In Judgment No. 3694 [PDF] the ILOAT sent a case complaining about that arrangement back to the EPO "so that the Appeals Committee, composed in accordance with the applicable rules, may examine the appeal."

Here is some background from the CSC side -- a publication from 2014 (four pages).

It's not too hard to see why the EPO feels as though needs to lie again. It got caught in a scandal -- one in which cyclical lies are essential (like the Watergate Scandal). When asked for its response by IP Watch, which wrote an article on the subject, "The European Patent Office has emailed some gobbledygook in response to the article of IP-Watch," as one person put it.

Earlier today we wrote about the quarrels Battistelli has with French politicians and the latest comments in The Register further reinforce the observation that Battistelli tarnishes the image of France. One person even called it "typical French behaviour" and alleged something to that effect; "I would say Battistelli is a typical Frenchman," the comment says, "arrogant, does not listen to critique, believes he is superior to the rest of the world. France in a nutshell."

A new comment in IP Kat says, "according to my info Battistelli also left the office of the German Minister Heiko Mass, with a "connard" (loud enough to be heard by the Minister Maas who speaks FR) - he also clashed with the NL state secretary, with the head of USIPO and JPIPO. to be continued.... Hey bro' who's the boss in da EPO ?"

“Let's hope the AC delegates act before it is too late.”
      --Anonymous
A tongue-in-cheek comment said: "Currently being rolled out in the EPO is a PRISMA information security policy, it is not about information theft prevention but information manipulation on a scale never seen before! ... BB's chiefs, HR and the IU are taking key positions and use information control tactics to gain ultimate control over Eponia and any opposition. Let's hope the AC delegates act before it is too late."

Look what has become of what used to be the pride of Europe. Time for Battistelli to resign rather than continue his charade of lying and finger-pointing.
