Thank you Nick Pope for clearing that up.

It's very enlightening to get data from the source!

What you've presented brings alot to the table.

If your government didn't engage in harrassment or threats against
UFO witnesses/whistleblowers/researchers etc. Then who did if any?

Are U.K. citizens open to discussion and disclosure of this subject
more than their U.S. cousins?

Here in the U.S. we're rife with stories of such threats and harrassments.
I've had four such incidents personally but none from official government
sources. It begs to query whom did these persons represent then?

The stories from Roswell to Kecksburg have some who state that they
were threatened and/or harrassed by officials. That's why I've asked.

We're dealing with several levels here:

Covert Officials
Private groups and individuals
Covert Private groups and individuals

If one were to entertain all the stories of 'secret people' arriving and
threatening witnesses, one would suspect some form of stealth and
liberty akin to some Hollywood script.

There's more here than meets the eye and we've all got a responsibility
to dig deeper and bring to light who these people are and whom and
what agenda do they represent.
