comment Multilingual sites and Google search results, using sub-folders for language
Having looked at what I think is your site, I suspect the temporary redirects you're using to send people to /en/ might be a big part of the problem. Off topic for the above question, though.

comment Webmaster Tools - URL Parameters Settings Do Not Work
OK. As I say, GWT isn't infallible and people often find that corrective actions take a while to be reflected there. The parameters don't appear to be indexed, so the only real problem is page performance. "Re rankings drop: Yes, might be" - I'd say it almost certainly is because you're not linking to it (and, as you've confirmed, nor is anyone else). So I refer you to (b) in my conclusion above.

comment Webmaster Tools is throwing out 404 errors on link not on page
Couldn't be Googlebot trying to execute some JavaScript, could it? I've had similar woes and that's occasionally looked like the culprit.

Where specifically in GWT? I've been through Crawl Errors, Blocked URLs, etc., and can't see them. Sorry to pester, it must be right under my nose, but I can't find it.
