Robert had gone to Aberdeen to campaign for justice for Hollie, and to announce his intention to stand for election there as an MP on the single issue of Hollie's case. Somehow, Grampian Police traced Robert to his B&B, picked him up from there and handed his key back to the proprietor - clearly indicating they intend to keep him for some time.
We are extremely concerned for Robert's safety. Grampian Police's press office will not confirm his wellbeing. He has committed no crime other than to speak out. Are we going to stand for this?
If you would like to contact Grampian Police to enquire about Robert, they can be contacted by telephone on 0845 600 5700 or by email [email protected].
If you call, ask for the Chief Constable. Please stay calm, be polite, but be firm. It is your right to speak to a police officer, so if the receptionist refuses to pass you on, ask them if they are a police officer, and again, politely but firmly ask to speak to the Chief Constable. Record the call if possible. One question you might like to ask is whether or not Robert has been permitted legal representation.
We will provide updates here as soon as they come to us.
