British businesswoman Margaret Whittaker, had a letter printed on Tuesday’s front page claiming that she has been “barred” from entering Mallorca from Britain because of red tape. The owner of the House of Son Amar entertainment complex was scathing in her condemnation of various immigration departments - who she claims, have blocked her attempts to attend to her business commitments on the island. In her letter to the Bulletin editor, she said that the Spanish authorities demanded that she produced a letter from the British Embassy enabling her to attend to her many business priorities. However, Ms Whittaker wrote that the British Embassy had assured her that it was - “not within their power” to intervene in these matters, as it was “nothing to do with them.” It seems that someone in authority is not being entirely truthful in this matter.
