A court in southern Vietnam will hear Gary Glitter’s appeal of his child molestation conviction later this month, state-controlled media reported.

The People’s Supreme Court of Appeals in Ho Chi Minh City will hear the former British glam rocker’s case May 19, the Thanh Nien (Young People) newspaper said Sunday.

Court officials weren’t available for comment Sunday. Glitter’s attorney could not be reached.

Glitter, 61, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, was convicted and sentenced to three years in prison by a Vietnamese court March

3. He was charged with committing obscene acts with two girls, ages 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, whose crowd-pleasing “Rock and Roll” is still played at sporting events, has maintained his innocence.

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