Together Gibraltar insists searches have been clearly instigated by Ministry & performed professionally but begrudgingly by BCA officers

Together Gibraltar insists searches have been clearly instigated by the Ministry, and are performed professionally but begrudgingly by BCA officers who feel like they are being pushed beyond their call of duty.

It says these officers will have to be knocking on doors of members of the community, questioning their integrity and inspecting the most personal and intimate sphere of their lives - their homes.

It also questions the timing to implement this policy, just weeks into some university courses.

The party says the Borders and Coastguards hierarchy have been pressured to defend a policy which they know is highly unpopular amongst their rank and file.

It says the Agency have been used as instruments of political spin.
