THE Andalucian Ombudsman, Jesus Maeztu who has travelled to Brussels as part of a European Ombudsman delegation will raise the matter of Gibraltar.

Brexit has stoked fears in the Campo de Gibraltar in general and La Linea in particular about the future of Gibraltar and the possibility of Spanish workers losing their jobs.

As things stand, La Linea has been suffering from a tide of lawlessness with an increase in violence against police officers, so if the border is closed and nearly 10,000 people lose their jobs, then the future of the town will look very bleak.

The fact that the EU has increased Spanish expectations of dual sovereignty by granting it certain rights over Brexit decisions affecting Gibraltar has encouraged expectations of some form of control backed by the threat of border closure.

The ombudsman visited La Linea and discussed the matter in some depth with the mayor Juan Franco and now intends to raise the matter of cross-border commuters, both Spanish and expatriate as well as the rights of British expats living in Andalucia prior to the final ‘divorce’.
