Borders closed by government decree
Article by Felipe Peces
Madrid - The spokesman of the Military Junta, Enrique Cobo, has announced that the government has approved a decree that enforces the closing of all Spanish international borders. Mr Cobo has said all Spanish citizens abroad will have 7 days to return to the country before borders are closed. Due to this announcement, several foreign companies working in the country have announced they're leaving the Spanish market. The closing of the borders comes two weeks after the declaration of war on Germany, Russia and Italy. It's also been announced that the internet will be shut down, something which has led to massive public outcry against the government. In a similar isolationist move the Spanish representor at the European Council has been recalled back to Madrid.
