Summary: The Varginha Case is, without any doubt, the most important case in brazilian ufology and, possibly, worlwide. It started with the testifying of three girls that had a sighting, but already has reached proportions beyond this.

The Varginha Case is, without any doubt, the most important case in brazilian ufology and, possibly, worlwide. It started with the testifying of three girls that had a sighting, but already has reached proportions beyond this. Associated to this case, UFOs over the south region of Minas Gerais State, became more constant since a few days ago. We have contusive witnesses evidence of sightings in four different towns, apart from each other about 80 Km. One of the witnesses is the Mayor of Monsenhor Paulo. Because of these happenings, people from the region stayed alert and interested in everything that occurred.

From them, we had the opportunity to contact Fire Corps representatives and also Military Police in Varginha, and from Escola de Sargento das Armas (ESA = Sargeants Arms School) in Tres Coracoes, which increase the unumbered details to the investigations, being possible to affirm with tranquility the truthfullness of the fact. It is extremely pleasant for me and for Ubirajara - ufologist who also commands the investigation - to be able to be involved in this research. We always read and heard talks about the cover up by the Arms forces, but it is something distant of what is happening in this case. We are here, living the facts and feeling on our skin all the cover up that is being done, all the counter-information that the Army's Secret Service and also Military Police are doing to disturb the investigations.

COMPLETE PROOF - We are feeling on our skins all the intimidation those authorities are exerting over the involved people in the operations and over the population. There are proofs that there exists an international intention to cover up the Varginha episode. This is not only a brazilian authorities thing: we have the knowledge that, in other countries, this also occurs. But here it is in an extremely violent form. Even though we are fighting against those military forces - in the sense of taking the facts to the public -, what has been valuable so far were the contacts that we maitained with military people, which allowed us to find out how the captures of extraterrestrial beings occurred in Minas Gerais.

It were those military people who, asking to be anonymous (and we garanteeing them this {NT: they mean they would keep it secret}), informed us in detail how the Army took these creatures, who commanded and who were the involved people in this operation. We also found out who ordered everyone to shut up, what hospitals and hours in which the beings were in, etcetera. There are only missing now photographs and films of the fact, because, in what refers to Varginha, everything is practically uncovered. It is a great honor to take part in this research, because when I first knew the facts, in past January, the Centro de Investigacoes Civil de Objetos Aereos Nao Identificados (CICOANI- Unidentifyed Aerial Objects Investigation Civil Center), in Belo Horizonte, and we decided that it was necessary a detailed investigation. As I was raised in the south of Minas Gerais State, knowing well the region, I was indicated to support the research. As soon as I arrived, asking questions and collecting information to know the veracity of the fact, I had contact with a military witness, whose identity is still kept secret, and that was the beginning of everything.

I was frightened with what I heard from that person, because what I found out was only the tip of the iceberg. I installed myself definitly there, in the South of Minas, because the subject is of such a gravity(NT: such importance) that I could not leave Ubirajara alone, such is the volume of things to be investigated. We established a partnership since the beginning, even though I only came to meet him there. We are working on this everyday, because we believe in the importance of the elucidation to the Mankind.

If we had not taken seriously the testifying of the girls, that was what originated all and that gave enough reason for us to ascertain the veracity of their witnesses, we would not continue the investigation and would not get to where we are. Ubirajara and I are involved here in this research to try to prove definitily the visits of extraterrestrial to our planet.

The officials at Escola de Sargentos das Armas (ESA), in Tres Coracoes, are professionals that follow superior orders and that, obviously, will not reveal anything about it, because it is not the interest of the Army Forces that this happens. For us, it doesn't change anything the fact of them denying everything, including accusing the investigation of ridiculous and inconsiderate, in an official note. We continue to respect the institution, because we know of the relevant services done to the community and to the country. The process of ufology cover up is worldwide - and in Brazil it would not be different.

The Brazilian government is under strong international pressures. It is not a surprise for me, because I already expected this negative conduct, but it will not change, in no hypothesis, the rythm of the investigation.

SOURCES IDENTIFICATION - What was revealed from us to the public is limited only to what can be the truth, to what is verifiable, because there are information that, in case it comes to public, we will end up involving and identifying our information sources, which need to stay occult for obvious reasons. These people have access to the knowledge of the operation, what is restrict and highly reserved. With the intention of preserving the identies of the sources, we are being very carefull when we speak to the midia about our investigation. The quantity of information is a lot bigger the one can think of, but we can't disclose them now, because the proofs that we have are only testimonials.

And the witnesses - civil and military - will not show up to the public because they fear a series of retaliations, and with all the reason. The only substancial proof that we would have for this case, that would be the creatures, was removed from the scene by the Army. Whoever did this operation wanted me, and any other person, to know nothing. It is clear that the captured extraterrestrials aren't in the south of Minas, but were transfered to places of maximum security. Possibly, similar cases to the Varginha have already happened throughout Brasil, only that they were controled in such a way that it was not possible for us to know about them. [Editor's note: for the luck of brazilian Ufology, the case occurred in a town where there are serious active ufologists. What if it had happened in a village in the interior of the Amazon, where there are no ufologists? Would we know about the happenings?].

Nothing impends that intelligent beings have already found us. This impact will be very strong and the Human Race will have to be ready for it. We are not alone in the Universe. Perhaps all this serves to man to think better about a series of things and to take care of his planet. It is unavoidable, that later on it will bring benefits to all the population. We believe that what we are revealing now will be a counsciousness reconquest in relation to the possibility of intelligent life in other planets. No doubts.
