Protesting police warn of airport, border crossings troubles
Spanish national police officers threaten to follow rules strictly on Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout July if wages are not raised.25 June 2008
MADRID - Protests over wages by National Police officers could bring airports and border crossings to a standstill in July with officers threatening to scrupulously follow the rules - checking almost everyone entering or leaving the country, filing charges for all offences and filling in all the relevant paperwork.
The protests are due to take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout July in a bid to force the interior ministry to equate officers' salaries with those of higher-paid regional police forces.
