His Master's Voice, Jesper Kongstad, Blocks Discussion of Investigative and Disciplinary Procedures at the EPO

Summary: The Chairman of the Administrative Council of the European Patent Organisation is actively preventing not just the dismissal of Battistelli but also discussion of Battistelli's abuses

EARLIER today we wrote about Jesper Kongstad, Chairman of the Administrative Council, who can in principle get rid of Battistelli. But instead he hiding key facts from the delegates and is protecting Battistelli from these delegates, in spite of many EPO (Office) scandals that put the EPO at risk of total collapse.



"So, not too shockingly, Kongstad remains a chinchilla of Battistelli and also stonewaller of Battistelli, i.e. a key facilitator of the abusive regime and thus an active collaborator."Readers were not too surprised by what was shown because employees of the EPO generally regard Kongstad to be little more than a chinchilla of Battistelli, totally incapable of supervising the "king" (a word which is in Jesper's own surname). "During the last AC meeting (March 2017)," one reader explained to us, "several delegations of the Board 28 complained that a proposal concerning the investigative and disciplinary procedures at the EPO had not been put on the agenda of the March 2017 AC. The Council Chairman, Jesper Kongstad, admitted during the meeting that it had not been done, but said that the document would be made available soon. But the delaying tactics was successful – the subject could not be discussed during the March Council."

Highlighted in yellow are the relevant bits from the relevant document.

"The proposal," our reader explains, "now available as CA/32/17 had been filed by the delegations of Switzerland, Germany, France and The Netherlands on 21 February, a few days after a discussion during the 16 February Board 28 meeting. See point 8 of the minutes of the meeting."

Here is the corresponding portion:

So, not too shockingly, Kongstad remains a chinchilla of Battistelli and also stonewaller of Battistelli, i.e. a key facilitator of the abusive regime and thus an active collaborator. He is under no obligation to do so. If and when the EPO comes under a serious investigation, Kongstad will have a lot more to worry about than that massive 'farm' of chinchillas in tiny cages all over his mansion (waiting to be slaughtered and sold for their skin). How can human empathy (e.g. for EPO staff) be expected from a skin farmer?
