As we observed yesterday, the quick turnaround promised for the Glitter appeal didn't suggest he'd be leaving the court a free man. Today's hearing tossed his application:

"We did not see enough evidence to reduce the penalty for the defendant," said chief judge Truong Vinh Thuy at the People's Supreme Court in Ho Chi Minh City.

"The decision was made based on evidence, documents and testimony of the victims.

"The behaviour of the defendant is dangerous for society, especially towards children. He needs to be punished."

Glitter complained that it wasn't a fair trial; He is, of course, well known for believing the criminal justice system must be fair and impartial at all times, which was why he made large cash payments to the witnesses against him before he went to court.
