Will more Robb victims get redress for their loss?

It is interesting that the terms of this keep changing....initially the idea was to help the purchasers take possession of their purchases and then be given help to finish them. Now we are reading that Robb's assets are to be sold to compensate the purchasers. Of course that would be a better option when you consider that Robb was imprisoned in the ROC for developing and selling land in Amaranta Valley belonging to Greek Cypriots. It would have to be somewhat foolish for anyone to put property on this land into their name when you recall what happened to the Orams, even more so knowing that the ROC are very aware of the provenance of this land.

It also has to be remembered that some of Robb's purchasers shared in the money intercepted by SOCA so long ago. It would be wonderful if all those scammed were compensated.

Let us hope this is not just a new government applying the new broom syndrome.

For those who were unaware of how the money intercepted by SOCA so long ago was distributed by the court, I can give you an idea but the Data Protection Act protects the recipients names and the size of their individual awards.

I can tell you that NCA was given an amount from the intercepted money which was greater than any individual recipient.

Robb, as we have been told, allegedly received £50,000 to allegedly to cover his costs. How bizarre is that?

The largest individual award was just over £57,000.00 and the smallest just over £5,600.00. The rest of the 57 successful claimants received sums between the highest and the lowest award.

Of the 71 claimants, 57 were successful.

This is the latest news bulletin from the NCA

http://www.nationalcrimeagency.gov.uk/n ... legal-case

There were several hundred Robb(er) victims, this case deals with just a small percentage of them, the rest are still out there blowing in the wind.

Robb victims took various different routes looking for justice. This case has not addressed the total issue, just scratched the surface. Interestingly the north Cyprus Government continues to sit back and it is the UK Government and legal system who have achieved this very small success. We all know that without the granting citizenship to the Robb(er) and the brazen way the authorities facilitated this scam, there would have been no problem. Having allowed this, consecutive governments have done nothing to help these and other property scam victims. Their advice has always been to use the courts. Ironic really when you consider that the very Advocates who were so negligent in the property purchase procedure and now profiting from their negligence…it is all so incestuous and no one trusts the legal system in north Cyprus. If this is the best advice/help the government can give, it is worse than useless.

We are told the amendment to the Citizenship Bill will help Robb victims. Time will tell. The real questions now are, can the victims afford this help, will it be safe to accept it and will they live long enough to see it?
