Condolences on the Death of Fernando Moran - 103/2020

February 20, 2020

The Chief Minister of Her Majesty's Government of Gibraltar has today expressed condolences on its behalf, and on behalf of the People of Gibraltar, to the family of Fernando Moran, former Foreign Minister of the Kingdom of Spain, who has passed away today.

Snr Moran was known for being Foreign Minister at the time of the re-opening of the frontier and for having said 'If Spain was handed Gibraltar on a plate against the wishes of its people it would be a bad deal for Spain.' He also visited Gibraltar to appear on GBC for an interview and debate with Sir Joe Bossano, who was then Leader of the Opposition.
