Secret UFO files to be made public after German Government loses right to keep them private
The German Government after a long and intense struggle has been pushed to make its UFO research public.
The existence of this report was not accepted until 2008 by the German parliament, the Bundestag, who have struggled hard to keep the files private.
However, two years later, Robert Fleischer, an UFO enthusiast from Exopolitic.org found that the Government had actually assigned the job of discovering the existence of extraterrestrial life to its scientific department, said The Express.
The fight for the X-files has been to some extent to that of a David and Goliath fight, with Frank Reitemeyer, the German blogger dragging the Bundestag to court over the country’s lack of transparency related to its UFO research.
He won his first fight in 2011 after the Berlin Administrative Court pronounced that German citizens had the right to see the classified report that was put together by the country’s Scientific Service.
At the time, Reitemeyer told the Berlin court:
“I want to know facts and it bothers me that in France, England, USA, Canada, the citizens can see the UFO files, and I am not informed as a German from my German government. It is therefore such a glaring discrepancy…In France, a citizen is automatically informed by his government because the government provides the UFO files to the website of the space agency, so officially on the government side, anyone can view the documents free at home”
While no date has been fixed yet for the release of the document, Openminds.tv, which is a site devoted to extraterrestrial life said that the ruling was not only a victory for UFO research but also for “the freedom of information in general.”
However, others seemed to be uncertain as to whether the documents would actually disclose anything new.
