"His appeals trial is set for June 15," said Bui Ngoc Hoa, head of the People's Supreme Court of Appeals in Ho Chi Minh City.

The trial would last one day, he added.

Glitter, 62, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, was convicted and sentenced to three years in prison by a Vietnamese court on March 3 for committing obscene acts with girls aged 10 and 11 at his rented seaside villa and at a hotel.

He was arrested in November while trying to leave the country on a flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok, Thailand.

Glitter, a 1970s glam rock icon in Britain, has maintained his innocence and says he is a victim of a British tabloid conspiracy.

He was also convicted in Britain in 1999 for possessing child pornography. He served half of a four-month jail term.
