Alicante withdraws controversial measures against beggars: "Alicante City Hall has decided to withdraw from a new bylaw on security measures for the public way penalties for those found begging on the streets.
The controversial measure, which included instructions to the police to confiscate any money a beggar may receive in charity from the public, led the police union to write to City Hall with a letter of complaint. Another from the UGT union’s section for the local police argued that this particular aspect of the bylaw was ‘clearly unconstitutional’, as there is no national law in Spain against begging."
