A statement from the GSD on the Sunborn project investment debate:
The GSD Opposition is appalled at the way the Government attempted to keep secret the existence of Credit Finance Company Ltd, the £289 million investment of savers’ money, made by the Gibraltar Savings Bank, to that company and the £30 million loan made by that company to Sunborn (Gibraltar) Limited.
Cabinet Director for the Spanish Government, Jorge Moragas, is tomorrow set to present a report at the National Security Strategy Congress 2013. Europa Sur reports that the document was approved by the Spanish Government at the end of May. Within the report, Gibraltar is once again referred to as ‘an anomaly in Europe’ and the breaking point between two allied countries.
The Development and Planning Commission met this morning to discuss the Government project for an extensive small boat marina to be built in the harbour next to Coaling Island. Chris Riddell, the project manager, announced that the plans for the wharf at the northern end of the marina had been altered to allow for a wider channel to access the marina. He also explained that a small island would separate the access channel from a special exclusion zone where only sailing and rowing boats would be allowed to navigate. Mr Riddell said that there would be a 20 meter bathing zone by the shore in the area of the Mediterranean and Calpe Rowing Clubs.
