BRITISH citizen Emilio Esteban has been arrested after trying to encourage people to move from the Gibraltar queues and demonstrate outside police officers homes.
From his base in Madrid Esteban, set up a website and published pictures of Guardia Civil and National Police officers’ faces, calling them ‘criminals’ and ‘torturers’ because of their stringent car inspections at the border.
The website calls for all those who have been affected by the delays to protest outside the homes of the officers pictured.
Esteban is in custody in Madrid and has been informed he must close the website.
Minister for the interior Jorge Fernández Díaz said that anyone organising these protests or ‘insulting’ police officers will face ‘the maximum possible consequences’.
