After a long and extreme struggle, the German Government has been forced to make its UFO investigation public. Until 2008, the presence of this report was denied by the German parliament --the Bundestag -- who have struggled hard to keep the files out of public’s reach. According to The Express nonetheless, two years later UFO supporter Robert Fleischer from Exopolitic.org learned that the Government had in fact tasked its scientific department with the job of investigating the presence of extraterrestrial life. The struggle for the X-files has been somewhat of a David and Goliath fight, with German blogger Frank Reitemeyer taking the Bundestag to law court over the country's absence of transparency regarding its UFO research. In 2011, he won his first round after the Berlin Administrative Court said that German citizens had the right to see the secret report being put together by the country's Scientific Service.
In Britain, UFO fanatics are enthusiastically awaiting March 2016, when the UK Ministry of Defence will seemingly issue 18 files to the National Archive, even though it is not clear at the moment if the public will have access to this study.
