Glitter Leaves Jail

LATEST: Disgraced pop star GARY GLITTER has been released from a prison in southern Vietnam, where he served a three-year sentence after he was convicted of child sex offences.
The 64-year-old singer - real name Paul Gadd - walked free on Tuesday (19Aug08) and is due to fly back to his native Britain after being deported from the country.
Gadd was arrested in November 2005 and subsequently jailed after he was accused of sexually assaulting two girls, aged 11 and nine, in Vietnam.
His lawyer Le Thanh Kinh insists that the singer is delighted to have been released.
He says, "He is a free man from today. The only problem is the countries he wants to go to because he has to get a visa.
"He is looking forward to coming back. He is OK but he is worried about his health. He has problems with his hearing and his heart."
Gadd is expected to be placed on the sex offenders' register upon his return to his native U.K., which will see his movements monitored by police.
