Glitter Seeks Amnesty

LATEST: Jailed British rocker GARY GLITTER is eyeing an early release from prison by appealing for amnesty from the president of Vietnam. Glitter - born PAUL FRANCIS GADD - was convicted of committing obscene acts with children in the country in March 2006 but hopes Vietnam's Liberation Day celebrations later this month (30APR07) will give him a chance of early freedom. His lawyer LE THANH KINH says, "My client will certainly seek an amnesty this time but it is still up to the president to decide if he would be released." He added the government amnesty was discretionary but often happened on major national holidays. The 62-year-old was jailed until November 2008. But a ruling earlier this year (FEB07) will reportedly see the star released three months early in August 2008.
