- Buenos Aires - While a member of the "Lineamiento
Universal Superior" (L.U.S. -- Superior Universal Alignment) cult
is being accused of crimes against children, the cult's leader, Valentina
de Andrade, is also under suspicion. She is believed to be living in Argentina,
according to investigators in this country's capital.
- In the city of Altamira, State of Para, 13 children were
raped, with their genitalia mutilated for what appear to be ritual satanic
purposes, and then stabbed to death. Physician Anisio Ferreira de Souza,
an alleged member of the L.U.S. sect, is among the accused and is currently
in jail. He is also under suspicion of having created an organization dedicated
to murdering minors to steal their vital organs, and of having committed
crimes in the states of Parana, Goias and Espiritu Santo.
- Judge Luis Ernane Ferreira Malto, of 3rd Crimilan Court
in Altamira, mandated preventive custody for other parties suspected of
being involved--among them another physician, a former corporal in the
military police, and Valentina de Andrade herself. "As of today, they
shall be hunted throughout the country and even abroad," stated the
judge when issuing the preventive custody decree.
- In 1992, Brazilian justice investigated Valentina and
her group due to the disappearance of a child in the island of Guaratuba,
in the southern state of Parana, where another children had become a victim
to ritual crime. Valentina and her followers avoided prosecution when suspicions
were proven to be inconsistent. From that moment on, the sect ceased all
public operations and its leader left Brazil for the city of Londrina in
Parana. Taking up residence in Buenos Aires, she was followed only by a
few faithful adepts, having been deserted by hundreds of followers who
had become aware of the psychological manipulation and economic exploitation
to which they had been subjected under the Brazilian's leadership.
- While former members who denounced these abuses testified
to the non-existence of ritual crime or the kidnapping of children by Valentina
de Andrade, they did accuse her of having commited "coercive persuasion"
after forcing a couple to turn over their baby daughter to a childless
couple, and forcing other couples to leave their children with grandparents
or other guardians in order to "leave the planet" aboard her
spaceship. These children were believed to be "negative energies"
by Valentina, who advised that they be left behind. Meanwhile, she portrayed
herself as a lofty cosmic entity of "light, love and truth" who
had become incarnate on Earth to perform a mission.
- Valentina's preching started in 1981 after having received
allegedly extraterrestrial messages through her former husband, Argentinean
national Roberto Olivera, her accomplice in the sect until 1987. Shortly
after, Valentina embarked upon her mission to spread the information she
had supposedly received from the cosmic beings. This task is apparently
pursued only by a few former members of her group, after having separated
themselves from Valentina. A confidential source says the woman's "abuses
betrayed the mission, using her extraterrestrial-imparted knowledge for
her benefit and not for the common good, for which reason the teachings
must be purified from her distortions and rescued from the ridicule she
created by her ravings."
- While Brazilian authorities sought Valentina de Andrade
in the country, hoping to finde her in Sao Paulo, sources knowledgeable
on UFOs in Argentina claim that L.U.S.'s leader is spending her 70 years
of age in Buenos Aires under fair economic conditions, without working
and relying on the earnings of her followers. She changes residences frequently
and has not denied herself a trip to Las Vegas among other ostentatious
ways of fulfilling her "mission on Earth".
