Peruvian court’s final classification of the complaint against cultural property filed by the public prosecutor in charge of judicial affairs of the Ministry of Culture.

“[…] it was not possible to determine the place where the alleged leftovers were found; not knowing that the place of the site, it is not possible to determine if the site is or not archaeological … Thus, the denounced act does not constitute an offense (article 334.1 of the Code of penal procedure modified by the law 30076) .”

Examination of the molecular composition of different samples. As part of The Alien Project, five samples of different parts of the body of mummies found on the site of Nasca (Peru) were sent to Professor Olivier Sire, expert at the Rennes Court of Appeal in physico-chemical and biological analyzes and Agro-Food Industries, for examination of their molecular composition by mid-infrared spectroscopy. This technique makes it possible to identify the (bio) chemical composition of any sample made of organic matter. The analyzes were conducted at the Dupuy de Lôme Research Institute (UMR CNRS 6027) in Vannes (France).
