Posted On 21:26 1 comments

The BOJA Official Bulletin in Andalucía has published the law placing a tax on the sale of single-use plastic bags in shops and supermarkets.

The tax came into effect on Friday with the objective of reducing pollution and protecting the environment.

The tax for this year is 5 cents per bag, but goes up to 10 cents in 2012.

Shops will have to clear the tax they have collected every quarter, and make the corresponding payment in the first 20 days of April, July, October and January.

Ryanair claims it is being forced to pay £2 million by Alicante so will axe more than two-thirds of its flights in and out of the Costa Blanca from October.

Spain to send diplomat to Libya for talks with rebels

Posted On 18:21 0 comments

Spain will send a diplomat to Libya's rebel stronghold of Benghazi for talks with the Transitional National Council, the main Libyan opposition group, a Spanish diplomatic source said Wednesday.
Jose Riera, Spanish ambassador for the special mission for Mediterranean affairs, will head to Benghazi "in around two weeks" to "reinforce dialogue" with the council, the source said.
Spanish Foreign Minister Trinidad Jimenez will give more details regarding Riera's mission later on Wednesday at a top-level diplomatic meeting in Doha called to discuss the crisis in Libya.
NATO has led air strikes against Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi's forces for almost two weeks since taking over from a US-led coalition that began bombing the regime's heavy weaponry on March 19.
Spain has committed four F-18 fighter jets and a refueling aircraft to help enforce a UN-mandated no-fly zone over Libya.
It has also deployed an F-100 frigate, an S-74 submarine and a CN-235 maritime surveillance plane to help enforce an arms embargo on Libya.
