Glitter may face firing squad death
21 November 2005

Disgraced Seventies rock star Gary Glitter could face death by firing squad after he was accused of having sex with a girl aged just 12, police said.

Sexual intercourse with a 12-year old regardless of whether there is consent is still considered rape under Vietnamese law, with a maximum penalty of death before a firing squad, according to the police.

The revelations come after two girls, aged 12 and 18 years old, told the police they had sex with the former singer - real name Paul Francis Gadd - at his rented home in the southern resort of Vung Tau in Vietnam.

There were conflicting reports that the second girl had not yet turned 18. Under Vietnamese law, sexual contact with a minor carries varying degrees of penalties, depending on the charge.

"Obscene acts with a child" can lead to up to 12 years in prison while child rape carries the maximum penalty of death before a firing squad.

"Having sex with a 12-year-old girl, regardless of whether he had her consent, is still considered child rape under Vietnamese law," a police officer said.

The 61-year-old former singer was arrested on Saturday at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City as he tried to flee the country. He left his rented home in Vung Tau a week ago amid allegations about his relationships with two teenage girls.

Glitter has been taken back to Vung Tau for further investigation by the police. He has not been charged with any crime but remains in custody at a jail outside the coastal city, police said.

Vung Tau police said they were continuing to investigate the case and will be questioning him further. The case has been highly publicised in the state-controlled media, which had reported that Glitter was seen in Vung Tau with several teenage girls, whom he invited to his home, since moving to the area in March.

Thanh Nien (Youth) newspaper reported today that the two girls were invited to Glitter's home, where he paid them for sex. The 12-year-old told police she had sex three times with Glitter, who paid her 5.50 each time, the paper said.

If I was to be executed, that's how I would choose to do it, like a man.

there is no excuse for a 12 year old.....I could see if a girl told a guy she was 18 or 19 and she turned out to be 17, in those kinds of cases I think it should be the girl who goes to prison and not the guy....but 12.....a pedophile like that should die IMO

From Wikipedia:

"Rhyming Slang
'Gary Glitter' has become a well-known piece of vulgar Cockney rhyming slang. (Gary Glitter = shitter, meaning anus or toilet.) eg. 'He takes it up the Gary' or 'I'm gonna use the Gary'."

Yeah, bugger all.

This story was on the radio last week. They found child porn on his harddrive in the uk and he was sentenced to 4 months in the clink. He moved to Cambodia where he was then kicked out of the country amid allegations of sex with children. Now this. They should put him in an abonded building and nail his pecker to the floor. Put a knife beside him and set the place on fire. Shoot him if he happens to come running out.
