UK UFO-report Govt Dept Closed (di55)
UK closes UFo log government department di-55 ('mi-55' or the mib)...
"The MOD has no opinion on the existence or otherwise of extra-terrestrial life. However, in over fifty years, no UFO report has revealed any evidence of a potential threat to the United Kingdom.
The MOD has no specific capability for identifying the nature of such sightings. There is no Defence benefit in such investigation and it would be an inappropriate use of defence resources. Furthermore, responding to reported UFO sightings diverts MOD resources from tasks that are relevant to Defence.
Accordingly, and in order to make best use of Defence resources, we have decided that from the 1 December 2009 the dedicated UFO hotline answer-phone service and e-mail address will be withdrawn. MOD will no longer respond to reported UFO sightings or investigate them. The ongoing programme to release Departmental files on UFO matters to the National Archive will continue." - mi55.

china daily; after 50 uk shuts down ufo unit.
nick pope ufo-researcher (ex-mod di55) on closure of unit. guardian uk.:
"When rumbled, the MoD press office implyied that the money saved (about £50,000 a year) would be spent on body armour in Afghanistan. I doubt it will be."
and... "about 5% remained unexplained. These included instances where UFOs were seen by police officers and pilots, or tracked on radar. Having worked on the UFO project from 1991 to 1994, I am very sorry to see the MoD disengage in this way."...
