Take your Brexit prob­lems to the UK am­bas­sador

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News - Awatkins@cb­news.es

By Alex Watkins MEM­BERS of ex­pat pres­sure group Euroc­i­t­i­zens are meet­ing the UK Am­bas­sador Si­mon Man­ley on Septem­ber 21 to present the con­cerns of UK res­i­dents in Spain and their queries about the fu­ture af­ter Brexit.

Michael Harris from the group ex­plained that they are do­ing this in co­op­er­a­tion with their Bri­tish­inEurope sis­ter groups, Bre­main and ECREU (Ex­pats Cit­i­zens’ Rights in the EU).

“We would also like to in­form Mr Man­ley of any ad­verse treat­ment as third­coun­try na­tion­als that Bri­tons may have re­ceived from Span­ish of­fi­cials. As you know, un­til March 21, 2019 we re­main full EU cit­i­zens,” he ex­plained.

“Please get in touch with us if any­thing that might be con­sid­ered anoma­lous has hap­pened to you, such as prob­lems re­new­ing res­i­dence cer­tifi­cates, S1 cer­tifi­cates, driv­ing li­cences, prob­lems with dou­ble tax­a­tion, etc.”

Mr Harris noted that for this to be ef­fec­tive, they will need the names of the peo­ple con­cerned and de­tails of the in­ci­dent.

He as­sured that all per­sonal in­for­ma­tion will be treated in the strictest con­fi­den­tial­ity.

“We are not sug­gest­ing in any way that there has been a de­lib­er­ate change of Span­ish gov­ern­ment pol­icy to­wards us,” em­pha­sised Mr Harris.

“How­ever, we feel that it is im­por­tant to doc­u­ment any prob­lems that do hap­pen and pass them on to the UK author­i­ties.”

All rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion should be sent to them by email via eu­roc­i­t­i­zens2016 @gmail.com EFE
