Vote for Exile of the Boards of Appeal Shows That the Administrative Council of the EPO is Still Compromised and Complicit

What good is the Administrative Council if Battistelli can tame/control it with EPO budget?

Summary: The breakdown of results of the vote on exodus of appeals staff, which will probably be exiled to Haar in a few months

"Shameful voting," one of our readers called it, with "21/7 in favour of Haar move..."



We could use some more information in case someone has it, like what each country argued (if anything). Here are the results of the vote to send the appeal boards away, with potential ramifications for EPO staff in Berlin (if there is something to the rumours):

"Yes" votes came from BE, DK, MC, PT, AL, BG, GR, ES, HR, IS, MK, RO, SM, CY, MT, LT, FI, LU, LV, SE, RS "No" votes came from GB, IE, LI, CH, FR, ML, NO Abstained from voting: CZ, EE, IT, PL, SI, DE, HU

We could say a lot more about why each county was likely to vote for or against, but it would be better to wait for some transcripts, minutes, or leaks.
