LATEST: Disgraced pop star Gary Glitter has been deported to Hong Kong after his release from a Vietnamese prison - after refusing to return to his native Britain.
Glitter - real name Paul Gadd - was released on Tuesday (19Aug08) after serving nearly three years in prison for sexually assaulting two girls aged nine and 11. He travelled to Thailand, where he was due to catch a connecting flight to his native Britain - but he refused to board complaining of chest pains, despite a doctor pronouncing him fit to fly.
The 64-year-old then broke Thai law by spending more than 12 hours in Bangkok without a visa, allowing authorities to deport him to Hong Kong, a special administrative region of China.
Thai immigration service spokesperson Colonel Voravat Amornvivat confirmed on Wednesday (20Au08): "He left Thailand for Hong Kong this evening."
Britain has not announced any outstanding charges against the singer, but declared he would be placed on the sex offenders register upon his arrival, monitored by police and banned from travelling abroad.
