A FORMER Supreme Court judge has criticised the Spanish government for cross-border queues holding up thousands of Gibraltarian workers.

JUDGE: Barrington Black

Barrington Black, who served as a judge in Gibraltar between 2012 and 2014, urged closer ties between the Rock and Spain.

The distinguished ex-judge also said flying the Spanish flag on the Mall is not something that should take place without negotiation on the border issues.

Writing in the Times of London, he said: “Over the past three years, 28,000 Gibraltarians have been subjected to lengthy queues to pass through the Spanish border controls, often in searing heat.

“The irony is that the 9,000 Spaniards who visit Gibraltar daily for employment are similarly affected by these controls, imposed at the whim of the Spanish government.”
