Overly friendly lorry driver fined under ‘gag law’

THE latest case of police officers making use of the so-called Gag Law which came into effect recently has seen a Malaga lorry driver fined €300 for calling an officer “mate.”

The driver, who was stopped in Rute, Cordoba, by officers carrying out alcohol tests, was issued with a fine for a “lack of respect towards a member of the State Security Forces, treating officers contemptuously and using the word ‘mate’ in front of passers-by,” according to the police report.
