Glitter's Amnesty Bid Rejected

LATEST: Jailed British rocker GARY GLITTER's bid for early release has failed after he was refused amnesty for his crimes yesterday (30Mar07). Glitter - born PAUL FRANCIS GADD - was convicted of committing obscene acts with children in Vietnam in March 2006 but was hoping yesterday's Liberation Day celebrations in the country would give him a chance of early freedom. However, he was not among the 400 prisoners who had their sentences cut as the nation celebrated. The government amnesty often happens 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.
