Guardia Civil chase boat into Catalan Bay

GC-lancha-media (Agencies) A patrol boat of the Guardia Civil intercepted a suspected smuggler in waters claimed by Gibraltar, on Saturday, according to The Gibraltar Chronicle. The Royal Gibraltar Police was advised of the incident by members of the public, and asked the Guardia to leave the area, which they did with no further ado. The RGP had not been officially advised of the incident until after it had unfolded, and under normal procedure would have taken up the chase.>

This incident comes at a time of tension between governments regarding the Rock’s claims to territorial waters, but a senior Government official is quoted as saying, “My gut feeling is that the Guardia Civil officers were just a bit too keen on this one.”
