Neil Duncan Robertson v. Her Majesty's Advocate

The Appeal Court, High Court Justiciary last month refused the appeal against the [discretionary] life sentence imposed last year.

Reading the Opinion given, you can understand why.

The full judgment [not for the faint hearted] can be found on the Scottish Courts website.

Or, to save you searching, just click here.

Although I have to say that, having only ready the first couple of paragraphs, I'm feeling particularly unwell already.

Awful read that ends on a high note.
[36] The appeal against the sentence of life imprisonment is accordingly refused.

Seconded.

After a pleasant lunch, I'm feeling ill. I shouldn't have read on.

I do not consider myself to have lived a particularly sheltered life but I found I had to stop reading after the first few paragraphs as I was feeling physically sick. I hope he never sees the outside of prison again and that he suffers every day for what he has done.

Sorry for the lack of “Cheers” but I do not feel it is appropriate

Danger

What little I read I found very disturbing. I havie met the man, and I find it incredible that anyone would behave in such a way.

Disgusted.

I couldn't even get that far.

Horrendous, hope his fellow inmates know all about it.

After a most enjoyable lunch with a fellow PPRuNer, also the father of two delightful little girls, I too read the first paragraph.

There really aren't any words.....

Angry

After reading the whole document I fully agree with the sentimnets of my fellow PPRuner's above.

I thought the last few sentences in the last paragraph were the most telling, with one of the final sentaces being:-

We consider that the risk posed by this appellant is such that a finite sentence cannot provide the necessary protection for members of the public
That says it all really IMHO.

My hands have stopped shaking enough to type accurately now. What a sad story for this poor, poor child How terrible that she had to suffer before anyone took this man's malovent manipulation and distortions seriously.

Having been very close to the whole 'Guv' saga I was not at the time too shocked by the affair probably as I, like Danny, was exposed/involved in it for some time previous and to an extent pre-prepared for the outcome becoming quite cold to it...I have to say however reading this again today has made me feel quite sick and emotional for the 1st time... piedophilia aside I can personally recognise in this tract many of his manipulative traits etc. that I (and others) saw and were subject to...and some of my friends warned me about that they saw in him and I frankly didnt in the beginning

I dont think it's something I or Danny are going to forget in a hurry however much we would like to

I hope someone with posting rights on Airwhiners and Airliners.net will do the honours as there were a few there that did not believe...and all those who criticised us, particularly Danny, for our actions against 'Guv' will now see why...

Unhappy Sincerest Apologies!

I sincerely apologise for anything that I ever wrote here in this b@st@rds defence!

I wish that there was a harsher punishment legal!

I wouldn't hold your breath Boss!!

I am sure there are still quite a few Ceilidh/SAS23 fans on Airliners.net. Even after being tried and convicted, there were those who went to great lengths to defend the creep.

Please may he be befriended by someone who wants to mother him and rot in hell.

Amen.

What a kin @rshole.

However as one with little faith in the judiciary. I have to say well done for refusing his appeal on the "life" sentance. Its just a shame that the death penalty is not available.

Appologise for my language but I've got a daughter of the same age, it makes you realise that not everyone on this planet views it in the same light as oneself, maybe I've always been a bit naive to such abhorant behaviour.

Point 36 is the only reasonable bit of reading.

Someone has already asked if he has acces to the internet in prison, I certainly hope his inmates have and when they read the link that FFF has posted I would think he should be careful in the showers tomorow morning.

The girls isnt even 10 and this happened a few years ago, horrific.

As a father of a two-year old little girl - I felt physically sick reading the above link.

I hope the b@stard rots in hell forever.

I met the man several times. It was clear he was someone who could not be trusted. His delusions of grandeur were painful at times but he knew aviation very well. I know of two people whom he fleeced - it was not nice.

However, Danny was determined to see him get what he really deserved and I was able to help him get him to the head of the Met Paedophile unit who then set the wheels in motion very quickly and within a few weeks NDR was nicked. That made the three of us feel very good indeed.

I rarely think about the man but was delighted to be reminded when he his appeal was rejected.

I have to say that I think it is a pity that the transcript of the appeal is available for all to see. But, there ya go it is a personal decision whether to read it or not.

I would like to forget him now!
