Glitter denies claims of child sex
22 November 2005
Former rocker Gary Glitter, who remains in Vietnamese custody, has denied allegations that he engaged in sex with two girls, including a minor, police officials said.
"In the questioning session he denied that he committed lewd acts with the girls," said a police officer from Ba Ria-Vung Tau province.

Authorities have decided to extend Glitter's detention at a prison outside Vung Tau by another three days so they can continue their investigation. Glitter has not been charged with any crime
A day earlier, police said two girls, aged 12 and 18, had claimed in interviews that they had sex with Glitter at his home in this seaside resort town.
There were conflicting media reports that the second girl had not yet turned 18, the age of consent in Vietnam. The girls' accusations are currently being investigated, police said.
Glitter, 61, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, had been stopped by immigration officials at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City over the weekend as he was trying to flee the country for Bangkok.
He was later turned over to provincial police in southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau, police and immigration officials said. Glitter, who rose to fame as a glam rocker in the 1970s, is best known for Do You Wanna Touch and Rock and Roll (Part 2), which is still frequently played at sporting events.


I bet the firing squad starts to play Rock and Roll (Part 2) and shoots him right at the "Hey!" part.
