How Luis Serrano, CRG Director, Barcelona/Catalonia, lied to the Court

  1. A year ago they ignored conciliation officer’s suggestion to accept that the dismissal was illegal and make things done: i.e. to pay out a small fine (~ one month wage) to me and give me a paper confirming that dismissal was illegal, their representative also told then that they needed the decision of the Court to make that small payment.Now they’ve started with their style of menaces again, urging me to accept the following proposal: before the Court they admit that the dismissal was illegal and pay me that money, but in turn© I have to purge all materials on them I put online. They pay that ridicule fine, I clean, they get off scot-free, as if nothing happened, as if they did nothing wrong and as if I am doing here even something criminal.
    If I do not accept this — they’re going to carry out their threats.I don’t.

    I said no lies.

    What did kinda surprise me — that Spanish Court did not find anything abnormal in their menaces*), neither noticed any contradiction in their proposal with its own decision at the end. The judge had a look rather petulant by me declining their menaces.

    And all that looked really quite medieval to me…

  2. On the Court hearing Luis Serrano, CRG Director, came to witness me «constantly refusing» to talk to his favorite, M Lluch Senar.That was yet another sheer lie (unless just comical):I’ve updated the DropBox with the copies of correspondence which happened a month before my dismissal when I had to explain to M Lluch Senar, biochemist, (© L. Serrano) how mass-spec really works (she tries to show up herself as if she understands it but pretty dumb to get a simple point). Finally, from the 3rd attempt, she gets it and even thanks me, reminding me one more time that I’d be fired anyway. She’s been obsessed repeating that in near every second her email with cc to Luis Serrano. I bet that seemed so sexy to her patron.

    Chat between me and her is mentioned in the beginning of that correspondence. So the meeting was with me and her alone, at my initiative because in that case that did make sense.

    Luis Serrano was well aware of the meeting, he was in cc.

    In fact, I refused no meeting with his favorite. I’ve been just asking for assistance as she used to be damn blind, aggressive and incompetent, sabotaging any communication with the lab people and involved in the project colleagues. That wasn’t the only lie he told to the Court, also he lied about me unrelated to his starring in «I think what maria proposed does not make any sense» — that was in fact said after me trying to explain Maria the same, but not that way directly. I just did not discarded her suggestion completely (that’d be too risky! but minding now Serrano’s confession to the Court — see in DropBox Court’s decision: his favorite reported on me unsuitable for her right around the same time!)

    The related email is now on the DropBox too (my actual boss was in cc of course and Luis Serrano was surely reacting on this correspondence).

  3. The third lie:The CRG representative told the Court (and Luis Serrano repeated it) that I was given 3 months to follow discipline I allegedly violated.In fact, next day after Serrano told me that his favorite M Lluch Senar was my boss (yet another one, as I still had to ask my official boss for holidays and the like), less than 3 months before my dismissal, I’ve got a letter from her, that she had «talked with Luis and he said me that he has given you the opportunity to work for three months in the lab and to finish the project». That being said I was told I’d be fired anyway. Serrano was in cc in that email (it is in DropBox too).

    No way he didn’t know, I was pointing on that assertion (that I’d be fired anyway) to the HR, Conflict resolution Committee. They didn’t care, they served to M Lluch-Senar and her henpecked one like the dogs, despite the law — «it’ll be illegal and you can go to the Court then».
    Well, we’ll kill you, what’s the matter? — your relatives can go to our Court then (the Court won’t find anything wrong in that).

    Luis Serrano, CRG Director, lied his face off to the Court.

    Not to mention the repeated falsehood about Conflict Resolution Committee, implying that they called for it (yet another lie — who could think that my call for it they’d basely use for themselves…), and about the reason of my transfer to Serrano lab, in order to mob and fire actually, as he implicitly confirmed himself: his favorite report on me that she’s unhappy to work with me (meanwhile, after her discussion with me after which he writes to several colleagues that her proposals make no sense) and he transfers me to his lab coercing me to talk to Sra. Lluch only alone.

    Needless to say now that this Spanish Court did not give the floor to me unless defendant party would have asked for it.
    And of course they were not interested to ask.

So this Spanish/Catalan Court has taken CRG Director’s words as they are along with their dismissal notice as a proof of my disobedience and made decision that my dismissal was legal. You can enjoy reading on DropBox their decision: nothing from my part is even mentioned…

— yet another achievement of Spanish science and Social Justice ⚖️ in Spain/Catalunya… But thank Providence and post medieval (post-fascist?) world: otherwise I’d have been put on fire literally, in the Auto-da-fé (or shot dead by these franquists).

Maria Lluch & Luis Serrano: lies, damned lies and dismissal notice

Dismissal notice (the same day got, the same day fired)

Conflict Resolution Committee of the CRG was called by Katerina, not by them, as they try to imply it in their dismissal notice (see below).

Also in this document they have actually just repeated their slander — see as well in the time line schema: «no one can work with you, you have bad communication with everyone» — this was said to Katerina in September as their reply on her question: why they wanted her to move in the lab if they asserted that she was so bad as a person?
They asserted this shit («no one can work with you») after she had agreed to move in the lab in July: she was told then that they wanted her to move because they needed for her expertise. Would you agree to move in the lab when you’re told that you can work with no one?

The last trip up was especially nice from them whereas initially Maria had excluded Katerina from any communications with data providers even though it was an utter requirement for the tasks which Katerina had to perform. So she had to figure on her own what were the data sources, and, surely, everything was fine with the other colleagues, no communication problems, just normal lab folks, who have been just helpful and nice. Otherwise, without them, the project could not move at all.

Also in CRG’s dismissal notice they have lied explaining the reason for the dismissal as if it was a repeated insubordination to Maria Lluch, i.e. to the favorite of Luis Serrano. She was not even an official boss of K., she was only set up as such after being set up as a project co-coordinator (exclusively by the authority of her patron).

The truth is that firstly it was repeated harassment, slander and repeated lies.
Maria Lluch’s misconduct and incompetence, imposed as her «scientific authority» and unaccepted by K. (and the acceptance of that was not her duty at all), K’s refusal to give in to data manipulation had that cost: the dismissal.
