Alexandre Benalla, Macron’s Violent Bodyguard, Was Also Battistelli’s Bodyguard

Posted in Europe, Patents at 12:35 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“Affaire Benalla et OEB: Benalla a travaillé pour Battistelli”

Battistelli and Benalla

Summary: Dots are being connected and a major controversy in French politics turns out to be connected (or lead) to Battistelli, the EPO’s thug who surrounded himself by other thugs

SEVERAL readers have independently informed us that the man who appeared in Battistelli's bizarre piece from 2 years ago (never mind the infamous diversity spin) wasn’t just some arbitrary person; we didn’t mention at the time and we have since then received a more recent/fresher copy (above), but Benalla is no stranger to Battistelli and the EPO.

I personally cannot read French, but some readers who can have sent us valuable input.

Writing about La French decadence, one reader said that “if you observe the recent developments of French politics, you might have noticed a stunning similarly between la methode Battistelli and la methode Macron. There is nothing astonishing because both graduated from the ENA. All French media are now busy with the Benalla affair.”

“…stunning similarly between la methode Battistelli and la methode Macron. There is nothing astonishing because both graduated from the ENA.”

Several people now link to this article. “It is in French,” the reader said, “however highly relevant.” The key part: “On retrouve ensuite l’ancien gamin d’Evreux à Munich, au siège de l’Office européen des brevets (OEB). Entre novembre 2015 et novembre 2016, cette institution dépendant de l’Union européenne fait appel aux services d’une société de sécurité domiciliée au Luxembourg et dirigée par deux anciens militaires français, Sigma 3D Security Services. C’est dans ce cadre que Benalla devient garde du corps du président de l’OEB, le Français Benoît Battistelli. L’atmosphère est lourde à l’OEB. Les collaborateurs reprochent au président son autoritarisme. Le président, lui, se croit menacé de mort. Sur son CV, Benalla gonfle une nouvelle fois ses fonctions : le simple prestataire de services devient « fonctionnaire international ».”

In English: “Then we find the former kid from Evreux (Benalla) in Munich, at the headquarters of the European Patent Office (EPO).” Between November 2015 and November 2016, this institution dependent on the European Union uses the services of a company headquartered in Luxembourg and led by two former French soldiers, Sigma 3D Security Services, Benalla becomes the bodyguard of the EPO President, Benoît Battistelli, in France. EPO employees blame the president for his authoritarianism, but the president feels threatened with death. On his CV, Benalla boosts again its functions: the simple service provider becomes “international civil servant”.”

Immunity? For violent thugs, too?

“Many people talk about it at this very moment and it’s an opportunity for French media to pay closer attention, follow some leads, and learn about Battistelli’s corruption and sheer injustice at the EPO.”“We were lucky not to cross Benalla at the office,” one reader said, “but it illustrates the type of thugs that Battistelli (maybe via the Colonel) used at the EPO….”

Or another take (in French): “Nous avons eu de la chance de ne pas le croiser….par contre cela illustre le type d’officines que Battistelli (peut être via la Colonel) a employé à l’OEB…”

Many people talk about it at this very moment and it’s an opportunity for French media to pay closer attention, follow some leads, and learn about Battistelli’s corruption and sheer injustice at the EPO.

We’ve only learned about that very recently (some hours ago). Any more information on this? Documents other than the internal communications (published in the intranet in 2016)? Let us know, dear readers, because surely there’s lots more to be found somewhere. The man spent a lot of time at the EPO, maybe on a semi-clandestine basis. Is it a patent office or barracks? Who was threatened? Who was made immune?

  3. [Meme] [Teaser] “Judge a Person Both by His Friends and Enemies”

    Fervent supporters of Team Battistelli or Team Campinos (a dark EPO era) are showing their allegiances; WIPO and EPO have abused staff similarly over the past decade or so



  4. 'Cluster-Voting' in the European Patent Office/Organisation (When a Country With 1.9 Million Citizens Has the Same Voting Power as a Country With 83.1 Million Citizens)

    Today we examine who has been running the Finnish patent office and has moreover voted in the EPO during the ballot on unlawful "Strike Regulations"; they voted in favour of manifestly illegal rules and for 8.5 years after that (including last Wednesday) they continued to back a shady regime which undermines the EPO's mission statement



  5. The EPO’s Overseer/Overseen Collusion — Part XVIII: Helsinki's Accord

    The Finnish outpost has long been strategic to the EPO because it can help control the vote of four or more nations; evidence suggests this has not changed

    The EPO has become a truly awful place/employer to work for; salary is 2,000 euros for some (despite workplace stress, sometimes relocation to a foreign country)

  10. [Meme] Giving the Knee

    The 'knee' champion Kratochvìl and 'kneel' champion Erlingsdóttir are simply crushing the law; they’re ignoring the trouble of EPO staff and abuses of the Office, facilitated by the Council itself (i.e. facilitated by themselves)



  11. Josef Kratochvìl Rewarded Again for Covering Up EPO Corruption and the EPO Bribes the Press for Lies Whilst Also Lying About Its Colossal Privacy Violations

    Corrupt officials and officials who actively enable the crimes still control the Office and also the body which was supposed to oversee it; it's pretty evident and clear judging by this week's press statements at the EPO's official Web site



  12. [Meme] Sorry, Wrong Country (Or: Slovenia isn't Great Britain)

    Team UPC is trying to go ahead with a total hoax which a high-level European court would certainly put an end to (if or when a referral is initiated)



  13. How Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden Voted on Patently Unlawful Regulations at the EPO

    We look back and examine what happened 8 years ago when oppressed staff was subjected to unlawful new “regulations” (long enjoyed by António Campinos, the current EPO autocrat)

    Benoît Battistelli‘s EPO faced no real and potent opposition from Norwegian delegates, who chose to abstain from the vote on the notorious and illegal so-called ‘Strike Regulations’ (they’re just an attack on strikes, an assault on basic rights of labourers)

    Today we publish many translations (from German) about the Austrian double-dipper, who already became the subject of unfavourable press coverage in his home country; he’s partly responsible for crushing fundamental rights at the EPO under Benoît Battistelli‘s regime
