THE Association Ciudadanos Europeos announced yesterday that it will be opening a new Palma office in September thanks to an agreement reached with the Caja de Ahorros del Mediterráneo bank. The Association, whose president is Kate Mentink, was forced to close the previous office, which opened in Palma in May 1997, in December last year when the new government decided not to continue with its support for the Association on the grounds that “it was not necessary, there was no budget and we didn't work in Catalan,” Mentink said yesterday. “we don't have any problems with working in Catalan, it's just extra expenditure.” Mentink said that despite having signed a new accord with CAM, the Association, which dealt with some 10'000 foreign residents in Majorca last year, intends to try and continue talking to the government about the European Citizen Project “but we have not had much success, but in September we hope to restart talks.”
