Robb Convicted of Property Crimes, 10-Month Sentence
British national Gary Robb, 48, has been convicted of charges connected with illegally exploiting Greek-Cypriot property in the Turkish-held village of Klepini in north Cyprus, and was sentenced to 10 months in prison.
Robb was arrested in the UK and extradited to Cyprus in August to stand trial for developing and building on property without permission from the owners, who are Greek-Cypriot refugees.
He is already a fugitive after fleeing to the north while he was on bail for drug dealing. In 1996, Robb was charged with conspiracy to supply ecstasy and amphetamines out of his club the Blue Monkey. In north Cyprus, he started the property development company Aga Developments and began construction on 1000 villas in Kyrenia.
Aga Developments did not complete many of the villas and The Aga Buyers Action Group was organised by people who bought property from Robb. This group brought a number of outstanding lawsuits against him in addition to his other legal woes.
