AFP - 1 hour 56 minutes ago

HANOI (AFP) - British pop singer Gary Glitter will be freed from a Vietnam prison on August 19 after serving a three-year term for child molestation, an official said Friday.

Glitter, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, was arrested in Vietnam on November 19, 2005 for charges of committing obscene acts with two girls aged 11 and 12 in the southern Vietnamese resort town of Vung Tau.

 

"According to Vietnamese law, Glitter will be freed on August 19," said Chu Xuan Mau, an official from the department in charge of prisoners' file at Z30D Thu Duc jail in Binh Thuan province, where he is being held.

 

"The decision on his release will be read before him that day. It will be signed by the director of the prison," he told AFP.

 

Glitter was sentenced to three years jail in March 2006, but he got a three-month reduction in 2007 when Vietnam marked its traditional Tet lunar new year.

 

"We have sent his file to the provincial external relations office and relevant police offices" in preparations for the release, Mau said.

 

In June, the online edition of People's Police newspaper quoted Glitter as saying he would continue with his unfinished album when freed, and might consider settling down in Hong Kong or Singapore.

 

Glitter, the former "glam rocker" once famed for his flamboyant bouffant wigs and silver jumpsuits, was also jailed in 1999 by a British court for possession of child pornography.

 

He served half of a four-month term and then left Britain to live in several other countries, including Cambodia, before moving to Vietnam.

 

Glitter's hits in the 1970s included, "I'm The Leader Of The Gang (I Am!)" and "Do You Wanna Touch Me?"

 

Should have thrown away the key, tbh.  :-X

Why do people do this, i dont understand. I dont know much about Gary Glitter, but obviously he was a pretty successful music artist.

 

Hang on that has nothing to do with it, why molest youngins in the first place, ill never understand what they get out of it, thank god! But in his prime he probably had birds all over him, he should have just, i dont know.

 

What im trying to say, is what he is done is inexcusable in the first place, but being famous and whatever makes it even more weird!!!

 

I dont know, im saying whatver i am thinking without processing it. 'Dont slate me, dont hate me'.

Glitter to return to UK on release

 

Disgraced glam rocker and convicted child molester Gary Glitter will be deported back to the UK after being released from prison in Vietnam next week.

 

"He will be deported back to Britain," Glitter's lawyer Le Thanh Kinh says. "Police booked his ticket from Ho Chi Minh City to London and I have already paid for the ticket on his behalf." Glitter's flight departs on Tuesday.

 

Glitter, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, was convicted in March 2006 of committing "obscene acts with children", and sentenced to three years in prison. The incidents involved two Vietnamese girls, aged 10 and 11, from the southern coastal city of Vung Tau.

Unbelievable footage of Glittertube on the plane on the way back to the UK! Several news stations had booked seats in business class near him on the flight and filmed him througout!

 

Just one thing though - since you're supposed to turn off all electronic equipment during take off and landing what the fuck were they doing filming as they were landing?
