Observer – Leading British Sunday newspaper the Observer has published a story suggesting that the British Ministry of Defence is not being candid with the public about its interest in UFOs, and that some dramatic recent sightings remain unexplained.

The story appears in the Sunday, June 4, 2000 Observer and concerns the efforts of Dr. Colin Ridyard, a research chemist, to obtain UFO information from the MoD.

Dr. Ridyard is quoted in the article as saying, ‘This is not about little green men, but about freedom of information. It is clear there are many strange incidents that happen in the British skies that are kept secret. There may be issues of aircraft safety or natural phenomena, but by keeping this information secret these incidents cannot be scrutinised by the public or the scientific community.’
