Leader of the Opposition, Daniel Feetham, met with committee members of the Gibraltar Women’s Association with Isobel Ellul-Hammond, Opposition Spokesman for Equality, last week to discuss concerns over the Sex Offenders’ List, ‘Sarah’s Law’ and making the register open to the public.
Other issues raised were licences for adults working with children and vulnerable adults, codes of practice when the Police have to deal with vulnerable women and children, and whether ‘Looked after Children’ in care have assigned care workers they can build a stable relationship with.
Three members of the Regiment were presented with a leaver’s gift from Commanding Officer Colin Risso on completion of 22 years service.
WO2 Steve Kelly joined the Regiment in 1990 after serving in the TA for two years. He has been deployed to UK, Morocco, Gambia, Cyprus and Kosovo and his final job was as MTWO. He noted, ‘thanks to everyone who has supported me in the Regiment, today is inevitable, it comes very quickly so make the most of what you have got here.’
