Subject: More On The Trindade Island Case

Dear Listers:

As I informed in my previous message,


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

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

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.


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.
