A meeting of the The Gibraltar Contingency Council (GCC), took place on the 10th October, to review security and civil contingency matters.

The meeting was co-chaired by His Excellency the Governor and the Minister responsible for Civil Contingencies, the Hon Gilbert Licudi QC MP.

As a result, the GCC assessed that there was no change in the threat level with a terrorist attack remaining as strong possibility; but, there is, however, no specific intelligence to suggest a direct threat to Gibraltar or any forthcoming on-Rock event.

The GCC will continue to closely monitor threat intelligence as it relates to Gibraltar, and Gibraltar’s Law Enforcement Agencies will continue to take the necessary measures to keep the Public safe by modifying their operational posture in light of forthcoming high-profile Public events.

As ever, the Public is asked to remain vigilant and to report any security and law enforcements concerns to the Royal Gibraltar Police.
