Many people claim having seen UFOs in Peruvian skies. However, the authorities do not want to lend credence to these stories. But even if they insist on trying to cover the sun with a finger, the evidence of beings from other worlds is real and undeniable. This belief is shared by a man of unquestionable prestige in this country -- Richard Amiel, former secretary general of the Popular Christian Party and former candidate to the mayorship of Lima, who claims having had his own UFO experience.

After saying that it was "a privilege" to have seen a UFO, the noted politician stated that the existence of extraterrestrials is known to the great world powers, such as the U.S. and Russia, whose governments have looked into sightings albeit secretly.

Richard Amiel, a geological engineer from the National University of Engineering and San Marcos, recalled his shocking experience in the vicinity of Alto Chicama, La Libertad, while carrying out an inspection in the company of a chauffer from the mining company he worked for in 1964. An extraterrestrial craft hovered over the Andean peak known as "Cerro Aguja".

On the road to the Plains of Quruvilca, district of Santiago de Chuco, at around 7 am, Amiel witnessed to his amazement how a large UFO flew noiselessly before taking off at a speed in excess of an airplane.

"I was performing a survey on coal for the construction of an thermoelectric power station when this giant vessel appeared in the midst of absolute quiet. We were only able to look at it, since were strangely unable to bring ourselves to photograph it," recalls Ariel.

"I reported the situation to the manager of the company I worked for. He told me that several people had witnessed similar phenomena, but did not go public because, given the subject's controversial nature, they were afraid of being branded as madmen," said the international consultant on energy affairs.

Despite the silence among high-ranking officials regarding the existence of ETs, Amiel said that he has decided to look into the subject as a result of his UFO sighting, gleaning information on the first aerospatial research endeavors conducted in Russia. "A Russian pilot informed his base from space that he was accompanied by objects that couldn't not be identified."

For Richard Amiel, the apparition of these phenomena is a factor of geographic space, since they always occur in "desolate areas", such as the coal basin of Alto Chicama, a coal seam that runs from the Usquil District to Quivica, one of the richest coalbeds of the Americas.
