Glitter jailed for child abuse-CNN

VUNG TAU, Vietnam (AP) -- Former rocker Gary Glitter has been found guilty of obscene acts with two Vietnamese girls, and sentenced to three years in prison.

Glitter, best-known for the anthemic "Rock & Roll, Part 2" song played at sports arenas worldwide, shouted "I'm innocent" after the verdict.

Reporters and onlookers allowed into the courthouse in southern Ba Ria-Vung province to hear the verdict following the closed two-day trial, pressed toward Glitter in a scene of pandemonium as police fended them off and escorted him out of the building.

"I haven't done anything. I'm Innocent. It's a conspiracy," Glitter shouted.

Glitter has 15 days to appeal and could become eligible for early parole if he behaves well in prison, officials said, according to Reuters news service.

Glitter, 61, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, was convicted of committing obscene acts with a 10-year-old and 11-year-old girl at his rented seaside villa in southern Vung Tau last year.

He was then sentenced to three years in prison, followed by deportation from Vietnam.

The court, in its verdict, cited graphic testimony from the girls that Glitter had fondled and molested them, and took showers with them naked, in his rented home and in nearby hotels.

Glitter has said he was teaching the girls English at his home and considered them "like his grandchildren."

He has been in police custody since November 19, when he was seized in Ho Chi Minh City trying to board a flight out of the country. Police confiscated his laptop, which had hundreds of pornographic pictures on it.

During the criminal investigation, police considered charging Glitter with child rape, which carries a maximum penalty of death, but said they did not find enough evidence.

The girls' families wrote to the court in December, asking that charges be dropped after Glitter paid $2,000 to each of them.

Although prosecutors decided to move forward with the case anyway, under Vietnam's legal system, the payments are considered "compensation" that counts towards lessening any sentence.

The sleepy resort town of Vung Tau, about 130 kilometers (80 miles) southeast of Ho Chi Minh City, has drawn intense attention from international media.

Glitter's fall from grace began with a 1999 conviction in Britain for possessing child pornography. He served two months in jail.

He later went to Cambodia but was expelled in 2002. Officials did not specify why Glitter was deported.

Nice. Hope he likes that Vietnamese prison. I bet the other inmates really like him.

Just an aside on Mr. Gadd...if your local stadium still plays "Rock and Roll," during events, write them and your local paper a letter asking them why they are supporting pedophiles. Every time that song gets played it is money in Gadd's pocket that he can use to abuse more children.

/shudders every time that song comes on at a game

I gagged in my coffee when I read that. At least he has heard of the Mekong. But does he know whether it's a city, tribe or river? \:\)

That is the innocent part of it, a british tourist caught up in a commie country just looking for the mekong delta, its a river of course, but I guess it was the last thing he was looking for when he visited.

Which one of those girls were called mekong?
Let them give their account of what happened,
that will clear the air a bit.

When he gets back here everyone will instantly recognise that ugly mug,

Kirk,

Your post reminds me something I heard from a friend years ago: "The mark of a great liar is that after awhile he begins to believe his own lies and take offense when people don't fall for them."

Nah he is not a pedophile, he is just being tormented by ppl who wanted to be in his gang.
His epic trip took him not directly to Cambodia, but he rather took the scenic route.

He travelled to Gibraltar, so that he would not be known by authorities as to his original destination which took him to Cairo, and steadily on to his destination.

When he got to the place where the mekong delta lies, he suddenly loses all interest in a world he only dreamt of in the past.

Because he is now an infamous pedo, he is followed there by some shady newspaper which I have not time for, but they catch him with young girls in his apartment.

He gets arrested because he is 'famous', and suddenly thinks, but why not all the other pedos who are doing the same thing, but you pick on me because I am famous.

Maybe its time we asked mr gadd what pedophilia really means in his loose terminology, maybe we also ask him why he was part of a pedo ring, to which he will also deny.

There is nowhere to hide, nowhere else to go, but to your old hunting ground where it is you who will be the hunted,

You could also throw in a 10megawatt heater to keep him warm in his rat infested prison cell.
I hope he is shacked up with some shizo nut, who takes a fancy to him.

When he arrives in the UK, he will be invited for a further stay in prison, where his fans are waiting to 'welcome' him back.

He will be very closely monitored on his return here,

If Vietnamese prisons are anything like Thai prisons (being right next door and all), the guards do not tolerate the violence and sexual assault that are so prevalent in US prisons; any inmate trying anything like that would be beaten very badly.

Don't think that makes such prisons "better", though. Thai prisons aren't like the dormitory prisons we have - they have no "common rooms" or courtyards to play ball in - once you're in your cell, you're in your cell. You eat there, sleep there, and never leave there. Quite miserable.

Unfortunately Glitter has the financial clout to get anything he wants in a state where corruption is rife. It was the paying of money to the chldrens parents that stopped him getting a bullet in the head.

Ste,

I liked this part:

Quote:
The 61-year-old former singer said he had only let the girls into his bed because they were "scared of ghosts" and that he never slept with anyone under 18.
Oh okay, that explains everything. Silly me <<>>, I thought he was a pedophile.

This link is better, read the comments of the public.

Asked what he would think of a middle-aged man who engaged in sexual acts with an 11-year-old, he said: "Certainly it would be a crime. I don't have the words. I would be very angry about that, extremely angry."

That's why I made the point about complaining to stadiums, etc, who use his song. In fact, it would be a great campaign for someone...maybe a few of us can get together and do a quick letter writing campaign?

Trying to get it banned has been tried over here. I appealed to OFCOM our communications watchdog but they did nothing as the song contains nothing that could be construed as obscene, but you very rarely hear Glitter or King on radio nowadays, thank god because I get flashbacks whenever I hear anything by them or the Bay City Rollers or Golden Earing come to that.

I have a more eclectic taste in music.

Golden Earings "Radar Love" was picked up and promoted by Denning, I was one of the first people to hear it, that was part of his grooming technique with muzos like me, trapped completely because I love music.

Nobby raises a good idea:

We have all seen the power of public opinion. If the proponents of an idea sit in silence, nothing will ever change.

Nobby, if you do organize something like this I will definitely contribute a letter.

Much love,

I'll draft up a letter and post it. If nothing else, we will raise awareness...

Anyone else interested? Do we send it under a pen name? I suggest: "Everything that Glitters is not Gold" or "Make Glitter Bitter."

If anyone wants to think up a serious name I'm all ears.

Here it is, in draft. If anyone has a better grasp of the facts of Gadd's earlier crimes I'd appreciate a review, to ensure we don't get sued for defamation...Let me know what you think.


----------------------------------------------------
Campaign Against "Rock and Roll #2"

Dear Sir/Madam;

We are writing to you today to express our concerns regarding the public exhibition of the song "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" by Gary Glitter.

Gary Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, is a serial pedophile and has been arrested and jailed in both the United Kingdom and Viet Nam for various crimes against children. In Viet Nam, Mr. Glitter was convicted and jailed in March 2006 for sexually abusing two girls aged 10 and 11. He is currently incarcerated in Viet Nam for these crimes. In 1999, Mr. Glitter was jailed in the UK for the possession of child pornography. Mr. Glitter was found in possession of over 4,000 pictures of young children being sexually abused. According to British authorities, some of the children in these pictures were as young as 2 years old.

We are engaged in a campaign to raise public awareness of Mr. Glitter's crimes. We feel that the exhibition of "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" at public events serves to condone Mr. Glitter's crimes against children, and we respectfully request that you consider discontinuing the playing of this song at your events out of respect for Mr. Glitter's young victims.

Sports teams and athletes are great role models for children, and we feel that your organisation provides a great service to the public and to children in particular. We ask that you consider your young fans when you consider whether or not to continue playing Mr. Glitter's songs.

Please note that we have also sent copies of this letter to: (media outlets, politicians, etc)...as part of our campaign.

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,

xxxxxxxxxx

Nobby,

It is a good letter, but I think we need a ban on all pedo musicians who we are convinced of being active in child abuse, convicted or not.

I would be grateful if I never heard GG, JK, MJ, or a few others ever utter a word in the field of music.

Jackson was such a role model for kids, but even his "innocence" is more than questionable on evidence of past pay offs to his victims.

The dialogue between his attorney on the pay off thing is on the net for all to see, and it shows that he was a perp all along,

Quote from GG:

Quote:
It was only recently that I found out that underage is 18 in the country, OK, but I don't believe that I slept with anyone under 18.
That reminds me of a joke I heard, and will now adapt:

A man goes to heaven, and as St. Peter is showing him all around he notices that there are clocks everywhere - millions of them. He asks St. Peter what these are for, and is told "These are Liar Clocks; everyone someone tells a lie down on earth, their clock moves forward a tick."

So the guy is looking around at the clocks of the great and famous. He sees that Mother Teresa's didn't move a single click all her life, and Abe Lincoln's only a few. Then he remembers a cool song he always liked and blurts out, "Where can I see Gary Glitter's Liar Clock?"

St Peter replies: "In God's office. He's using it as a fan."

Larry, awesome joke.

As soon as they release him, he will jet off to UK.

Then the jet lagged tourist will not have time to adjust before being questioned in a police station.

I am sure his laptop makes good reading to the police as they look at all the porn sites he visited.

It will be interesting as it embroils King who was part of his pedo ring.
The cops will bug him for the rest of his life, which hopefully is not long,

Already been followed up on. OFCOM have not banned any of their records as there is nothing obscene contained within the lyric its more the mainstream radio station have decided not to plug anymore of their music as they get inundated with complaints from listeners, its a voluntary code they have.

Best punishment for him is to let me visit him every day.
That is one visit he would not be looking forward to.

That would be sadistic!

Rich pedos like him should have to pay a heavy
financial price back to the state, for the damage they do to kids lives and society itself.

Innocent!!!! Never,

UPDATED: GLITTER LOSES SEX CONVICTION APPEAL
Next Story | Previous Story | Back to list
An appeals court in Vietnam has upheld the conviction and three-year prison sentence of former British rocker Gary Glitter for molesting young girls at a seaside villa.

The court "rejects the appeal of the accused and sentences him to three years in prison for obscene acts with children," said Truong Vinh Thuy, one of three judges hearing Glitter's appeal in Ho Chi Minh City.
The 62-year-old singer - famed in the 1970s as an outrageous act decked out in bouffant wigs and sequin jump-suits - had been found guilty by a court on March 3 for committing obscene acts with girls aged 10 and 11.

Standing before the judge at the People's Supreme Court of Appeals, Glitter clasped his hands behind him and shook his head several times as he listened to a court translator during the 40-minute verdict.

"There was no defence allowed," he screamed to reporters as he left the courthouse. "I didn't do anything," he said and yelled an obscenity at journalists before he was put in a military green police truck and driven away.

Glitter, real name Paul Francis Gadd, was accused of kissing, fondling, and "engaging in other physical acts" with the girls at his rented villa in the seaside city of Vung Tau, about 80 miles south-east of Ho Chi Minh City.

He has maintained his innocence, saying he was teaching the girls English at his home and considered them "like his grandchildren".

He has admitted to police that the 11-year-old girl slept in his room because she was afraid of ghosts, but denied committing any lewd acts, said his lawyer Le Thanh Kinh.

Glitter said he was a victim of a conspiracy by the media, witnesses and the victims, Kinh told reporters outside the courthouse. He accused tabloid newspapers including The Sun and The News of the World of "damaging his reputation," and claimed "the evidence relating to his case looked like evidence from the newspapers," Kinh said.

In 1997 he took his computer to be repaired, and thousands of hardcore pornographic images of children were found on it. He was convicted in Britain in 1999 of possessing child pornography, and served half of a four-month jail term. He later went to Cambodia and in 2002 was expelled from that country, though Cambodian officials did not specify a crime or file charges.

Fabulous news.

Also, I heard on the radio this morning that the NFL has officially banned Rock-n-Roll Part 2 from any of its games. Hopefully the ball will keep rolling, down hill, right over this SOB's head!

ROCK ON........Trish

Trish,

Great news! The license rights to those big hits cost a fortune, so that's another financial setback for him.

Meanwhile, I wonder if he has found a good hairdresser in that Vietnamese jail he's in?

Much gloating,
Larry

Five months to go, and he will be coming back to Merry Olde England.
On arrival, he will be taken into custody and questioned by the cops.

Looks like a merry old christmas for all this year, truth is though, he is innocent, or so he says, so it would be almost impossible to change a perp in so much denial.

The other clown Jackson is trying to adopt a Japanese orphan boy.
What next! Who is the real 'father' of those kids he walks around with, and how come they are all fair skinned.

Seems he never can get enough of 'innocence' but who is their real 'dad'. Seeding a kid for a perp is never anything I would be part of, no matter what the financial gain.

Glad that glitters records are being boycotted, they are in England too,

Ste,

My daughter recently showed me another example of incredible denial, an online blog website based in Bahrain about Michael Jackson. He's there as the guest of the rulers, as you probably know.

The blog is incredible. All these Bahrain teenagers adore him and think the charges against him were all trumped up. Meanwhile he's probably working his way through their little brothers.

Anyway, my daughter wrote a piece tearing him to pieces with all the right arguments, and her piece got highlighted as featured content. \:\)

Ste,

No one may be able to change him, but his life can be made as difficult as possible. I hope that everyone whose life his poisonous touch has reached will be at the airport to greet him on his return. England has quite a stake in seeing him punished on her terms.

ROCK ON.......Trish

ROT IN PRISON GLITTER
Glitter marched off as he loses child abuse appeal
Andrew Drummond, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
CHILD molester Gary Glitter was dumped back in jail yesterday after losing his appeal against abuse charges.

The 62-year-old former glam rock star screamed: "I'm not a paedophile, that's bullshit" as he was bundled into a prison truck and returned to prison to finish a three-year sentence.

Glitter had arrived at the court in Vietnam at 7.15am in a cheerful mood. He told reporters that he was "looking forward to having a drink in a bar".


He added: "You will have to wait for my memoirs."


At 3.30 pm, after the verdict, he became enraged when a journalist asked him whether he would be seeking help as a paedophile.


"Bullshit. I'm no paedophile," he said. "I'm innocent".


If he meets all the conditions for parole he could be released as early as November.


He will be deported to Britain where Scotland Yard want to question him about images found on his computer. He has already been convicted in Britain of possessing child pornography and was sentenced to four months in prison.


Glitter shook his head as Judge Nguyen Xuan Phat rejected his appeal in Ho Chi Minh City.


The judge said: "He had appealed on the basis that he was the subject of conspiracy by newspapers, victims and a witness, but his statements are inconsistent."


The court heard that Glitter arrived in Vietnam from Cambodia two years ago with a young prostitute. She helped him find young girls, aged 11 to 13, for his own sexual gratification.


Glitter admitted that the girls had been in his bed but claimed they had always been clothed.


But witnesses said he made the girls watch him have sex with the prostitute before abusing them.
