Gary Glitter, the convicted child molester and former glam rock star, will be deported back to Britain after his release from a Vietnamese prison next week, his lawyer said today.

 

Glitter, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, was convicted of obscene acts with children in March 2006 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.

 

"Police booked his ticket from Ho Chi Minh City to London and I have already paid for the ticket on his behalf," the lawyer, Le Thanh Kinh, told the Associated Press by telephone.

 

Last year, authorities cut three months from Glitter's three-year jail sentence for good behaviour. Glitter, who has served his term at Thu Duc prison in Binh Thuan province, 87 miles north of Ho Chi Minh City, will be released on Tuesday.

 

Kinh said Glitter told him several months ago that he did not want to go back to Britain, but Vietnamese law requires it. In a recent interview with the Cong An Nhan Dan (People's Police) newspaper, Glitter said he intended to resume his singing career and may move to Singapore or Hong Kong.

 

Glitter was convicted in Britain in 1999 of possessing child pornography and served half of a four-month jail term. Upon his release, he moved first to Cuba, then south-east Asia. He was expelled from Cambodia in 2002 over allegations of child sex abuse but was never charged.

 

Glitter's defence team claimed he had been teaching English to the Vietnamese girls, known in court as D, aged 11 and Ng, aged 10. Three prosecution witnesses contradicted his story.

 

Testifying for the prosecution were Hoang Thi Bong, 18, described by officials as a prostitute living with Glitter at the time of the assaults; Glitter's maid Nguyen Thi Anh; and Tran Thi Kim Oanh - D's aunt who, according to officials, took the girl 190 miles from her home in Can Tho province to have sex with Glitter. Ng, who is thought to have been pimped by one of her relatives, lives in Vung Tau.

 

The court cited graphic testimony from the girls that Glitter had fondled and molested them repeatedly in his rented home and nearby hotels.

 

Glitter hit his musical peak in the 1970s. His crowd-pleasing anthem Rock and Roll (Part 2) is still played at many sporting events.

 

Can't wait for the red tops, Mail & Express..

So is Gary Glitter.

Former pop star Gary Glitter has refused to board a flight to the UK, saying he was having a heart attack.

 

He was earlier deported from Vietnam after spending almost three years in jail for sexually abusing two girls.

 

Glitter, 64, real name Paul Francis Gadd, had arrived at Bangkok in Thailand, where he was to change planes and fly back to the UK.

 

But he refused to leave the airport, demanding to be allowed to stay in Thailand or another Asian country.

 

Glitter sold millions of records as a glam rock star in the 1970s, with hits including I'm the Leader of the Gang.

 

He had been met at Bangkok airport by immigration officials to ensure he caught his connecting flight.

 

But BBC correspondent Jonathan Head said the British policeman accompanying Glitter had been unable to persuade him to board the plane to the UK.

 

Glitter has been refused entry to Thailand, despite a plea for medical treatment there.

 

Our correspondent said Glitter was stuck at the airport, unwilling to face the reception in the UK, but unable to go anywhere else.

fyds hasn't been online lately has he?

Fyds has been in the Ardennes having a holiday, drinking good beer and going to a really dull Euro qualifier - got back last night.

 

I'm just glad Glitter has finally been done for this type of offence with kids and is effectively tagged for the rest of his unnatural.

 

All those years back, I only found out about his 'tastes' via those in his usual backing band - other sessioners...so hearsay rather than evidence. Unfortunately you can't prosecute someone just based on hearsay (of course today if they were muslim, you probably could!). The bloke who told me was the sax player - ad when I got back last night, the first programme on telly was 'The Merseysound family tree' on BBC4, I think - I switch on, and the first face I see is the very same sax player, 'Toby' Brian Jones of the then Undertakers. Weirdly small world at times.
