The good news has just come through from Robert that his custodial sentence will end and he will be FREE to go home early in the morning of 17th May. He received the news in the Governor’s office this afternoon and there has been much jubilation at Craiginches ever since.
He will still be under curfew when he gets home (7pm to 9am every night of the week) for 3 months and of course campaigning and so on is out but at least he’ll be able to go for walks and go on line and all the things he’s not been able to do.
Robert wishes me to say that he strongly believes it is largely due to the tremendous support he has had from so many people that he’s been let out early and asks me to say a very big THANK YOU to everyone once again. He also wishes to commend the prison staff who have been universally gracious and helpful. This has made made what could have been a much more trying time really quite bearable. He’s also made some good friends from amongst his fellow inmates with whom he’ll be keeping contact.
Another bit of good news is that the Ombudsman for Scotland is looking into the appointment of Sheriff Bowen to Robert’s trial. We look forward to further details on this interesting development.
The person who will be most pleased of all by the news of Robert’s imminent release will be Hollie who was most upset when he was sent down. It doesn’t take much to make Hollie feel insecure, which isn’t surprising considering what she has been through in her life and she hasn’t felt entirely happy since Robert has been in prison. So this news will really cheer her up!
"FREE ROBERT GREEN" so many times chanted on many a street in the past few weeks has worked! Well done everyone! Now it’s back to "JUSTICE FOR HOLLIE GREIG" – we can do it, can’t we?
