VISITS to Gibraltar by two Spanish politicians has further upset La Linea’s mayor.
PP mayor Alejandro Sanchez was unhappy after Gibraltar’s chief minister Peter Caruana met first with La Linea’s PSOE candidate Gemma Araujo and then with Isabel Beneroso.
The pair held talks with Caruana to discuss the re-establishment of better cross-border communication between the Rock and the mainland.
The mayor has infuriated Gibraltar by attempting to introduce a toll for visitors to the Rock as well as attempts to tax telephone lines used by offshore betting companies which pass through his town.
Sanchez claims the socialist government in Madrid has sacrificed La Linea’s interests in favour of Gibraltar, in order to maintain good relations with the UK.
