The Government has claimed that it does not understand the continuous ‘nit picking approach of the Opposition’ in relation to the Gibraltar Savings Bank. They insist that the GSD does not know what they are talking about.
A statement continues, ‘the plain fact is that the interest payable on both Government debentures and Gibraltar Savings Bank debentures have been higher than the interest rate offered by most other banks for the past 25 years or so! This is nothing new.

Regarding the Chief Minister and Dr. Cortes’ recent visit to Washington, where they attended a number of inaugural events for the newly re-elected President. The GSD notes that among these events, Mr. Picardo and Dr. Cortes, along with their respective spouses attended the Candlelight dinner, which is an evening held for those who supported the election campaign, as well as benefactors and donors.
The Party goes on to state that the benefactors and donors invited are all US citizens, as donations from foreign governments are not accepted. The Opposition is requesting that Government clarifies which company or individual invited Mr. Picardo and Dr. Cortes to the inaugural events, whether any donations were made by the individual or company that invited the Ministers and whether the Government of Gibraltar has any consultancy or other contracts with that individual or company?
