The downgrading of supervision for the Da Vinci rapist Robert Greens has sparked fears that he could return to Midlothian unsupervised.
County residents say they fear for their safety after it emerged that the round-the-clock monitoring of Greens, now living in Edinburgh, had been stopped.
After being released from prison in January, he had two social workers living with him 24 hours a day in Dalkeith to ensure someone was “always awake” to monitor him. Under the new supervision structure, Greens, from Mayfield, is under curfew from 8pm to 8am and wears an electronic tag.
Jarnac Court resident Courtney Ritchie was part of a group which successfully campaigned to have Greens removed from Dalkeith earlier this year.
He said: “It’s disgusting that he is allowed to roam. The authorities have no respect for the public whatsoever.”
