«You should realize that Maria can get fired everyone, even me» [HR]
K. made this schema (updated with last events) for Conflict Resolution Committee at CRG.
Later the CRG Administration dishonourably implied (see below) that this Committee was allegedly called to make her follow the discipline. But that was the other way around: the Committee was called for by K. to resolve the issues with Maria Lluch’s professional misconduct and incompetence.
All fairly appropriate Committee’s suggestions (transfer K. to another lab, Luis Serrano supervising project as its real leader) were rejected by Luis Serrano, who was forcing K. to recognize his favorite’s (i.e. Maria Lluch’s) scientific authority: that was his «non-negotiable requirement» (see below)

«…this is not England or Europe, here there is no honor or ethics, just pure corruption» [a colleague]
K. presented the following to the Conflict Resolution Committee at CRG, she highlighted for them the most odd quotes. They have not found them really abnormal. They rather silently agreed to be sneakily used for her dismissal. She have had a correspondence with Juan Valcarcel, genuinely presuming his independence, but no one from the Committee expressed any sorry to her after all.
Juan Valcarcel just told K. quietly and smiling that the dismissal would be illegal and K. could go to the court then. Nice kids, really. You lose your job, never mind, this is just our game with us playing people.
Getting their (Maria Lluch’s & Luis Serrano’s) «no one can work with you», «you cannot work with users», «no one can understand what you are doing» and other bullshit like that, just as a way to oppress her, — every time K. heard that she just felt utterly stunned. She could not get it: how come that people who consider themselves as scientists happened to turn over rabid liars like that? What about science they do? If they are lying that at ease…
The very same people have been repeatedly requiring to recognize their scientific authority. Franco style? Or what was that?
Support bacteria! — they’re the only culture some people have!…
