CHIEF MINISTER Fabian Picard said that “Gibraltar opens its doors to the people of chess”. Visiting the Tradewise Gibraltar International Chess Festival yesterday he spoke of the Rock of Gibraltar being the home of chess in January and February every year.
Gibraltar Citizens Advice Bureau (GCAB) is expecting a surge in people getting help with debt problems during the coming weeks. Some people have begun the New Year fighting a debt hangover. We usually see a rise in people getting help with debt problems in January, but the kind of problems people are struggling with has been changing throughout the years.
The Minister with responsibility for Justice commenced the Proceeds of Crime Act 2015 in its entirety. This Act consolidates current legislation on money laundering in Gibraltar and creates a single regime dealing with the recovery of money from drugs offences in the same manner as the recovery of money from other criminal conduct.
