Together Gibraltar has today said that the Disability Act 2017 - also known as Agnes’ Law - which legislated to further protect people with disabilities, has been “languishing in purgatory” for over four years, while disabled Gibraltarians “continue to suffer from institutional abandon and systemic discrimination.” The party adds that the Bill, while modelled on the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, “does not go far enough” into guaranteeing the rights of this historically sidelined collective, as some of the most significant parts of the Convention were never transposed into the law.
The GSD says it will hold an Inquiry into the circumstances of the early retirement of former Commissioner of Police Ian McGrail if elected to Government at the next elections.
Government: “Allegation Of Psychological Abuse From Hassan Nahon Is Untrue, Unfair And Callous On The Victims Of Abuse”
The Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, has reacted to the statements made by Together Gibraltar leader, Marlene Hassan Nahon, yesterday on GBC’s Newswatch.
The Government says the statement by the GSD on the allegations made by Dr Burke “simply asks the Government to do what it is already doing”.
The Government says it is “astonished” by Together Gibraltar’s comments which “fail to reflect the information already provided to the public and MS Hassan Nahon in the Parliament just last week.”
