Rotorua a 'Hive Of UFO Activity'

By Mike Mather

A surgeon hailed a pioneer in the removal of devices implanted
into humans by aliens is headed for Rotorua.

Dr Roger Leir won't be performing surgery when he visits in
September but will speak at a conference, hosted by Ufocus New
Zealand, which will focus on UFO sightings and other
extraterrestrial-related phenomena.

Although Rotorua was chosen to host the conference for practical
reasons, it is coincidentally part of a triangular section of
the Bay of Plenty - between Waihi Beach, Whakatane and Rotorua -
 which is a particular hotspot of UFO activity, according to
Ufocus founder Suzanne Hansen.

"There is also a pattern of increased sightings whenever there
is seismic activity. It may be that the UFOs are tracking what
is happening with the tectonic plates."

Ufocus treasurer and conference facilitator Graeme Opie, who is
also the senior air traffic controller at Hamilton Airport, said
in the past year there had been about 12 "credible" UFO
sightings in the skies over New Zealand.

"A lot of people don't report them because they are scared of
being labelled kooks ... or they report them directly to the
police or the defence force and we never get to hear about

Between 150 and 250 people are expected at the conference in
Rotorua with Dr Leir as a keynote speaker.

While his resume sounds like part of a script from an episode of
The X Files, the organisers of the Future Perspectives
conference, at the Rotorua Convention Centre in September,
insist the American is the real deal and they want to be taken

Dr Leir, who holds qualifications as a foot surgeon, is touted
as a world pioneer in the surgical removal of devices planted
into people, supposedly following alien abductions.

According to the biography posted on the Ufocus website, Dr Leir
has performed 12 separate operations to remove implanted objects
from people, the most recent in September. As with the other 11
cases, the patient was an abductee who had "a lifetime of close
encounter experiences".

The website claims the objects he removed, some of which look
similar to small metal pins, had been tested in some of the
world's most prestigious laboratories and baffled scientists, in
part because "some of the tests show [radioactive] isotopic
ratios not of this world ... comparisons have been made to
meteorite samples".

Ms Hansen, who lives in Tauranga, said she was certain Dr Leir
was "on the level ... he has spoken at hundreds of conferences
and is very credible".

"He began as a non-believer [in extraterrestrials] but he became
fascinated with these objects that showed up on x-rays with no
point of entry or exit on the body.

"I can only surmise that they might be some kind of tracking
device or something that monitors aspects of a person's health."

Ms Hansen said she expected the conference to generate a lot of

"People have a great fear of being ridiculed if they come
forward [with stories of UFO sightings]."

The conference will be held on September 29 and 30.
