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.
