BBC journalist Tim Leach was allegedly threatened by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) while reporting on a 1994 Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) landing case at a school in Ruwa, Zimbabwe.

The case involved 62 students from Ariel School in Ruwa, who reported seeing a disc-shaped craft land in a field behind their playground on 17 September 1994 - some students even claimed that humanoid beings emerged from the craft.

Following the incident, the BBC's correspondent in Zimbabwe, Tim Leach, visited the school to investigate the case.

After filming a report and sending the tape to London to be aired on the BBC, the tape went missing. That meant Leach had to file a separate report.

Liberation Times can reveal that according to a source who wishes to stay anonymous, Leach confided that he had received threats from the CIA. Leach indicated that the CIA was interfering with his story.

The source also provided Liberation Times with audio of a conversation with Leach from 1994, in which the journalist, sounding rattled, warned them to "be very careful."

Leach, a former head of the Foreign Correspondents' Association, died in 2011.

News regarding the CIA's alleged involvement in the Ruwa case comes months after the Daily Mail revealed allegations that the Agency's Office of Global Access had conducted multiple retrieval missions of non-human craft.

Three sources, who spoke to the Daily Mail on condition of anonymity to avoid reprisals, were all briefed by individuals involved in those alleged UFO retrieval missions.

One source told the Daily Mail that the CIA has a 'system in place that can discern UFOs while they're still cloaked,' and that if the 'non-human' craft land, crash or are brought down to earth, special military units are sent to try to salvage the wreckage.

Sources tell Liberation Times there is historical evidence that suggests certain elements in the U.S. government have been involved in nefarious activities to intimidate UAP witnesses.

Recently, Lue Elizondo, the former Director of the U.S. government's UAP program, known as the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), stated it was recently revealed to him that there could be a personal threat against himself and several other whistleblowers formerly associated with the UAP effort inside the U.S government.

At a Congressional public hearing in 2023, Representative Tim Burchett asked former senior intelligence officer and UAP whistleblower David Grusch whether he had personal knowledge of people being harmed or injured in efforts to cover up or conceal extraterrestrial technology - Grusch answered, "yes, personally."

Grusch added that he had also directed individuals with knowledge of murders related to the UAP cover-up to the appropriate authorities.
