Gary Glitter is denied entry

August 21, 2008|From the Associated Press

British glam rocker Gary Glitter, who served nearly three years in a Vietnamese prison for molesting children, was denied entry to Hong Kong after refusing to return to England, officials said Wednesday.

Glitter flew to Hong Kong on Wednesday night after staying in the transit area of Bangkok's international airport for several hours. He'd flown there Tuesday after being released from prison and deported by Vietnam.

"The Chinese authorities have informed us that they have refused Paul Gadd entry into Hong Kong," a spokeswoman for Britain's Foreign Office said. Glitter's real name is Paul Francis Gadd.

"It's a matter for the Chinese authorities what happens next," she said.
