Minister Celso Amorim Ministry of Defense Brasília (DF)


The participants of the IV World UFO Forum (I UFOZ 2012), that occurred in Foz do Iguaçu from 6 thru 9 of December, under signers of this letter as representatives of the Brazilian UFO Community and some 15 other countries, respectfully present the following facts as premises to your excellency, and lastly, demand for action, as follows:

  1. Considering the unquestionable reality of the worldwide manifestations of the so-called flying saucers, UFOs, which are widely known by various scientific and military segments, for at least 60 years, as advanced extraterrestrial crafts of physical and intelligent nature, and manifested by means of highly advanced technology.
  2. Considering that such manifestations, commonly known as UFO Phenomenon, are being surveyed and studied by military authorities under several circumstances, including some Brazilian Air Force (FAB) officials, via the Unidentified Aerial Objects Investigation System (SIOANI), in 1969, and by the Operation Plate, in 1977, both publicly known through the partial disclosure of documents related to their workings and achieved results.
  3. Considering the system and instrument records of these manifestations as already publicly recognized by several nations around the globe, and the same has occurred in Brazil, in August 10th, 2010, with the publication at the Nation official journal (Diário Oficial da União) of the Resolution 551/GC3, sent forth and signed by the Aeronautic commander, Brigadier Juniti Saito(tenente-brigadeiro-do-ar), making known the fact that the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) does accommodate, processes and has procedures for UFO sightings and accounts.
  4. Considering the numerous occurrences of such phenomenon, when recorded and organized in systematic manner by the Air Forces of several nations, including Brazil, had risen considerable attention to their characteristics in several military rankings and attested that the crafts involved possesses an incompatible technology to what is currently known by science and though only conceited within such reserved ranks, need further consideration and investigation.
  5. Considering that, due to their nature, though fully described and known by such military commands, and due to their constant growing manifestation throughout the planet, the UFO Phenomenon has led many nations to dispense their active military resources, through official institutions and investigation offices, cataloguing and studying their peculiar characteristics, and through such process came to being, inclusively, procedures of cooperation between military forces in these various countries, and in some cases with researchers and civil entities to investigate and research the subject aiming at properly disclosing their findings to the citizens.
  6. Considering that, in Brazil, the Air force has already produced significant quantities of information and documentation regarding sightings, recordings, radar detection, direct contact and even aerial pursuits of such vehicles, and in their majority such data has been classified in various legal security categories, some remaining as such to this day by unjustifiable means, since they do not pose any national security or civil threats, as determined by the adjunct article XXXIII of the 5th Constitutional Amendment.
  7. Finally Considering, that regardless of the dedicated efforts of researchers of the theme, such as the campaign UFOs Freedom of Information Now, from the Brazilian UFO Researchers Commission (CBU), in order to, through the legal parameters allowed, effectively proceed with the declassification of military information about the subject in its totality and promoting the full disclosure of such material for public and scientific access, only the Brazilian Air force (FAB) has opened part of its files about the matter to the national archives, while the Navy and Army are delaying in releasing their files in any possible way, against the mandate law number 12.527/2011 (Access of Information Law)
