Brazilian UFO Magazine Offices Burgled!

Subject: Brazilian UFO Magazine Offices Burgled!

Hi friends,

The Brazilian UFO Magazine offices were broken into and robbed
last week. Thieves forced one door of the property on the night
of July 30 and stole several computers, printers, equipment etc.
The losses are higher than US$12,000 and unfortunately a large
number of computer files will never be retrieved. We still
haven't been able to raise the necessary funds to recover from
the robbery and 80% of our activities are paralyzed.

The Brazilian UFO Magazine offices are located in an area on the
city of Campo Grande considered reasonably safe, and the
property, a rented house, was also considered secure. However,
the thieves knew precisely what door to force and how to do so,
because very little damage was caused. And presumably they also
knew very well what they were looking for, because not only some
specific computers, printers, were stolen, but also, and very
suspiciously, particular folders containing very important and
sensitive information about several areas of Ufology in Brazil.

I cannot describe at this time the exact contents of the many
folders taken, to avoid any interference in the investigations.
I can only say that the folders taken were located next to many
others that haven't been touched, as they didn't contain the
same kind of information. The stolen folders covered specific
aspects of some UFO-cult movements going on in Brazil, as well
as still unreleased cases of military involvement with the UFO
Phenomena in several areas of the country and other nations and
South America. They also covered our plans for the future of the
campaign for UFO disclosure in Brazil.

Because of the very high strangeness of the MO demonstrated by
the thieves, the police suspect, and so do we, that the invasion
was a meticulously planned criminal act. It implies that our
activities have been closely watched for weeks and perhaps
months prior to the break-in. We believe that the robbery was
designed not only to cause a severe financial damage to our
activities, by preventing us from publishing the Brazilian UFO
Magazine for at least two months, as well as to damage us in
other ways.

The Brazilian UFO Magazine is one of the oldest UFO publications
still in active in the world. It was founded in 1985 and was at
it 135th edition. The magazine is monthly and circulates all
over Brazil, Portugal, some places on Spain and in several
countries of Latin American. As of this month of August an
English version of it should be initiated in the USA, based in
California. We also publish books, conferences and DVD

Those friends in overseas in position to help the recovery of
the Brazilian UFO Magazine are kindly asked to do so. Those of
you interested in helping us may write to editor.nul to
obtain information as to what can be donated to the magazine.
Any help if immensely welcome. You may spread the word.

Thanks for your attention!
