From: A. J. Gevaerd - Revista UFO <aj.nul> Date: Tue, 8 Feb 2011 08:48:03 -0200 Archived: Tue, 08 Feb 2011 09:50:03 -0500 Subject: More On The Trindade Island Case Dear Listers: As I informed in my previous message, http://www.ufoupdateslist.com/2011/feb/m04-013.shtml we already have a complete version of the new information about the Trindade Island Case available to the International UFO Community in the website of the Brazilian UFO Magazine (www.ufo.com.br). As stated before, the difference between this new info and previous attempts to discredit the case and Barauna's photos (some of them that didn't stand up for more than 5 minutes), is that this time the new witness to make his claims, Marcelo Ribeiro, is Barauna's nephew and was actually very close to him, like a son. Marcelo declares that he Barauna told him and only a few other members of his family that he forged the photos. He recognizes, however, that it may have occurred some sighting onboard the Almirante Saldanha vessel, witnessed by the military there, but claims that Barauna had taken advantage of that to make his tricks. These are very serious accusations. Only because of that and because he is who he say he is that we took the time to translate the new info into English to offer to the International UFO Community. You will see in the material that Marcelo Ribeiro doesn't' believe in UFOs at all and he is very skeptic about them, which is certainly an issue to be considered (there are others that you can judge by yourselves). Our consultant Alexandre de Carvalho Borges, author of the piece, pursued the case for over a decade and has been a relentless defender of its legitimacy, based on the facts very well known and a few that he dug. The new information that he found out amazed him. After all, the Trindade Island Case is one of the most important UFO events in the world and has been under debate for decades, always passing with high standards. Of course, everyone here who chased this info in the past will feel outraged. However, it would be very unethical not to inform you of the new allegations. If they are real facts, it is now open for a debate. In closing, let me state again that that neither the Brazilian UFO Magazine nor I, as its founder and editor, support the new witness claims, for more consistent they may sound. Neither we reject them, even considering some contradictions in his report. While we give you this information, for journalistic and ufological ethical principles, we will keep our position impartial about these new data. Until proven fake at no reasonable doubt, Trindade Island Case stands. I will be presenting this new situation at the next International UFO Congress in Phoenix, AZ, February 23 to 27. http://ufocongress.com/2011-ufo-congress-update/ Again I sign this joined by the magazine's international relations coordinator, Thiago Luiz Ticchetti. With sincere thanks to him, Eduardo Rado, volunteer translator, Paulo Poian, our collaborator, and the entire team of the Brazilian UFO Magazine (www.ufo.com.br). Thank you very much. A. J.
