The ‘Da Vinci rapist’ has been moved to a maximum security prison after breaking the parole conditions of a home leave visit.

Robert Greens (39) was in Castle Huntly open jail after being found guilty of raping a Dutch student at Rosslyn Chapel, a location in the Dan Brown bestseller, in 2005.

However, he now faces time in a maximum security jail after breaching release conditions when on a day outside of prison in preparation for his release.

It is understood that he broke his parole terms by visiting Penicuik, the home town of his former wife, the same offence that he committed when on leave in 2012. As a result of breaching his conditions Greens has since been moved from Castle Huntly to an Edinburgh jail.

It has been reported that a prison source said: “He’s done over ten years but keeps getting time added on for breaking conditions. He was in Castle Huntly and was getting home leave and supervised visits. But on at least one occasion, he’s been found in an area he is not allowed to enter.

“He was due a parole hearing this year but this could now be in doubt as he can’t be trusted to do as he’s told.

“It would appear he has again tried to enter the town he is banned from. Because he’s so well-known, it would be difficult for him to do so under the radar and he keeps getting caught.”
