Following the amendment by Parliament of the Police Act 2006, the number of members of the Gibraltar Police Authority has been increased to ten. In addition to the appointment of three new members, there was a need to appoint a further member in place of Mr Manolo Ruiz, who stood down from the Authority. The four new members are: Mr J Brian Francis, Ms Mandy Gaggero, Mr Vikram Nagrani and Mrs Naomi Hassan Weisfogel. The appointments for a period of three years have been made by the Governor acting on the advice of the Public Service Commission.
