Glitter Objects To Travel Ban
Shamed pop star Gary Glitter is appealing against a travel restriction which was put in place following his return to the U.K. after serving time in Vietnam for sex crimes.
The singer - real name Paul Gadd - was released from a Vietnam prison in August (08) after serving nearly three years for sexually assaulting two girls aged nine and 11.
Glitter was ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register when he arrived back in his native U.K., meaning he has to inform British authorities of any plans to go abroad.
A recent application to travel to Spain via France was turned down by a judge in September (08) - and now the 64-year-old is fighting the restriction altogether.
Lawyers acting on behalf of the rocker brought the case before a judge at London's Harrow Crown Court on Friday (21Nov08), when an appeal date was set for 19 February (09).
