    Before being led away, he said the decision was "unbelievable" and that the verdict was a "conspiracy", blaming it on "you-know-who".

    Who is the "you-know-who" exactly?

    G.Gliter is an embrasssment.

    As the previous poster said, why did he end up in Vietnam?!!!!

    He has no one to blame but himself.

    Doesn't learn.

    He's been on a trail of messing with kids since he was caught (taking his PC in for a service at PC World none the less) with a load of kiddy-porn in the UK some time back. Served only 1/2 of an 8-month sentence, then goes to Cambodia for more, gets kicked out of that country after an investigation, moves to Vietnam - where he was caught trying to escape the country, after the police came knocking. Basically paid off the kid's families, to help avoid the death penalty...

    At 61, there's a good chance he'll rot to death in their prison system... or he'll slip away to another country and we'll hear about him ago in 5-years time.

    Its a fact that places like Cambodia and Vietnam are a haven for child-sex tourists from the West. I doubt he went to Vietnam just for the coconuts only.

    I had my fingers crossed he would be executed by firing squad, somehow 3 years doesn't quite cut the mustard.

    Would you approve of a death sentence over here, or only over there?

    There's no way I'm getting drawn in to a debate about the death penalty. I'll just leave my last statement at that :D :p

    Still don't believe in the death penalty but it is a pity that Vietnam don't subscribe to the 'use it badly, lose it painfully' policy. Castrating him should stop him raping 10 year olds in the future.

    Says a lot about a place when you can pay a few quid and go from the death penalty to 3 years.

    I think we have to respect that other countries are willing to deal with criminals etc, in their own way. Be it execution or long term prison sentences.

    gotcha. you were saying that he went to vietnam for that reason, and not that the only reason anyone would go to vietnam is for underage sex.

    that's where i was unclear.

    I think it was a reference to the British tabloid press, who Glitter feels have had a conspiracy against him over the past few years. The poor darling. :rolleyes:

    Apparently there wasn't sufficient evidence for the rape charge - which is what carries the death penalty. He still got the lowest possible sentence though... he'll be deported back to the UK in a year.

    How about countries that deal with their criminals by torture, or public beheadings? What about countries that deal with their criminals by moving them to a 'black' system where no information about them is available? Do we have to tolerate EVERY country's method?

    According to this they could put a Foreign Travel Order on him, to prevent him going somewhere like Vietnam again. Although as he's already been expelled from Cambodia and, after his sentence, Vietnam, and is probably well known to the Thais it's unlikely they'd let him in anyway.
    Now he could be prosecuted under the Sexual Crimes Act 2003, which has a provision for sexual offences committed overseas, but as he's already been tried and convicted it might be difficult to get it to stick.
    A deeply troubled individual.
