GIBRALTAR (Panorama) The Opposition say they have first-hand information of a young man of 17 who was refused entry into Spain on Sunday evening on the basis that he could not cross with an identity card if under 18. The young man was accompanied by his 24 year-old sister. The person was allowed to cross when he went home and obtained his passport. According to eyewitnesses, there was a group of about 14-15 youths at the frontier who were experiencing a similar problem and whose identity cards were being rejected as a valid travel document. The Opposition add that>>>they take a very serious view of this matter. The Gibraltar identity card format was changed in 2000 by the GSD in order to keep Spain happy. It appears that notwithstanding this change the Spanish authorities continue to cherry pick when they recognise the cards and when they do not. "Given the seriousness of this matter, the Opposition has brought this incident to attention of the United Kingdom Government since it appears to be a breach of EU law to reject a valid travel document. The United Kingdom as the Member State responsible for Gibraltar has an obligation to investigate the incident and put matters right," said a statement.
