The old British glam rocker is best known for the annoying "Rock and Roll (Part 2)," played at nearly every sports arena in the United States and used to great effect in a Starbucks commercial about a drone named Hank.

But in Vietnam, the 61-year-old Glitter is known as a wanted man. A person of interest. A perv, if you must. The Associated Press reports:
"At present, relevant authorities Ba Ria Vung Tau province are trying to trace this gentleman, and clarify the relationship between this gentleman and a Vietnamese juvenile," Foreign Ministry spokesman Le Dung said.

Dung said authorities have conducted interviews with a 15-year-old girl who they found in the home rented by Glitter. The spokesman said Glitter, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, had applied for permanent resident status in Vietnam.

"If evidence of a (legal) violation is found against Mr. Paul Francis, and especially evidence of sexual child abuse, I believe that very strict legal measures will apply to him," he said.
Glitter was popped in 1999 for having child porn and served two months in jail. For alleged child-porn offenses, he's not allowed in Cambodia.If caught in Vietnam, he could face the death penalty. Hey!
