Da Vinci rapist breaks his silence to protester: Just get me out of here
"DA Vinci rapist Robert Greens has broken his silence to reveal he has a girlfriend in the south of England and wants to leave Midlothian to go and live with her.
It emerged that Greens, who has faced a barrage of protest since his release, has a panic alarm installed and keeps a fire extinguisher close to hand in the bare house in Bonnyrigg over fears of a fire-raising attack.
He also complained that he was not allowed to keep his two Staffordshire bull terrier dogs, which he has pictures of on his mobile phone, over fears that they may be poisoned. He said he did not like living in a house which was previously the home of a convicted paedophile.
He frequently visits the Capital. And he wants to meet the leader of the protests, which have taken place regularly outside the house.
His comments came in a five-and-a-half-hour, late-night conversation with a protester who turned up outside Greens’ cottage after a night out on Saturday. Despite police
warning people not to be alone with Greens, the protester – who has asked to remain anonymous – decided to knock on the door. They were shocked when the sex offender appeared at the door and then invited them in.
The rapist then spent hours talking to the protester, who later met with the Evening News to reveal for the first time how Greens lives.
The protester said: “I had walked a friend home after the pub and decided to head out to the protest. There were no other people there, so I decided to try knocking on his door. I couldn’t believe it when he opened it.
“He invited me in and I said ‘yes’, as I thought that it would be good to hear his side of the story.”

Da Vinci rapist protesters ‘will keep coming’
"The front of the cottage next door is covered in hand-drawn banners calling for his removal, although protesters said the woman who lived there had moved out in the wake of her new neighbour’s arrival.
More signs on sheets tied across a fence opposite the cottage read “Put the beast in a cage” and “Get the beast oot”."
