Here is the full statement from Gary Glitter's solicitor David Corker:
"Mr Gadd is pleased to be back in this country.
"The last few days, as you know, he has been travelling around Asia and that time was not wasted.
"It enabled Mr Gadd and others to put into practice a plan for his proper and safe arrival.
"Mr Gadd is not a well man, he needs medical attention and is also, unsurprisingly, concerned about his safety and these past few days have enabled the Metropolitan Police and I, on his behalf, to put into place a proper procedure for his protection and his well-being. I'm pleased to say that's in place.
"Mr Gadd is pleased to be back for another reason. He is pleased to be back because for the first time he can appear before a court of justice.
"He tells me that his trial in Vietnam - a country which has been condemned by virtually every organisation concerned with justice and human rights as being a system of unfair justice and political trials - was a charade, was a travesty of justice.
"He never got a fair trial and in due course that will be expanded upon.
"This morning was an opportunity for him to come before English justice for the first time to make these points.
"Unfortunately the court didn't agree with my submission that it should hear me on the issue about the unfairness of how he has been treated by the Vietnamese system.
"That was an opportunity that I sought to take on his behalf but the court decided it did not want to hear.
"Therefore this morning there has been no opportunity before an impartial tribunal to put forward why it was he was innocent of the crimes for which he was convicted in Vietnam.
"There may be another opportunity in the future. It's too early to tell.
"Mr Gadd wants, through me, to say to you that he did not commit the offences for which he was convicted in Vietnam.
"It was a show trial and he had no opportunity to put his defence forward.
"Ultimately he wants that to be tested, if he can, before the courts of this country.
"That was the reason for this morning when I opposed the making of a notification order.
"I sought an interim order to give me an opportunity to develop what I'm saying to you but that was not given to me.
"Mr Gadd now has three days to work with the police - it's a completely harmonious relationship between him and the police - about notification and that will be done in full accordance with the law."Reuse content
