Vietnam Purges Pervy Gary Glitter

Convicted child molester (and glam rocker) Gary Glitter got out of prison in Vietnam -- but now he'll have to face the scorn of his countrymen.

Glitter will be deported back to the UK, his lawyer said, even though he doesn't want to go back. The cops are so eager to get him out of Vietnam that they even booked his ticket back to Heathrow for him, according to his local lawyer.

Gary was serving a three-year sentence after being convicted for "obscene acts with children" involving two Vietnamese girls, age 10 and 11.
