Former British pop star Gary Glitter is to appeal against his three-year prison sentence for sexually abusing two young girls in Vietnam, his lawyer says.
Gary Glitter described the court's verdict as "unbelievable"
Le Thanh Kinh said he had met Glitter at Phuoc Co prison where the 61-year-old had signed appeal papers.
Earlier this month, a court found that Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, had molested the girls, aged 11 and 12, at his home in southern Vietnam.
Glitter may be considered for release after serving a third of his sentence.
Speaking after his meeting with Glitter, his lawyer said: "He told me he was innocent so he has to appeal to clear this matter."
In addition to his prison sentence, Glitter was ordered to pay 5m Vietnamese dong (£180/$315) to his victims' families.
On his release from prison, Glitter will be deported and could face more charges in Britain.
But although he will definitely be deported, it is not guaranteed that he will return to the UK.
After his conviction, the former rock star insisted he was innocent and said the "unbelievable" verdict was part of a "conspiracy" by British newspapers.
During his two-day trial, most of which was held behind closed doors, he was said to have committed a series of "lewd" acts while the girls were at his beach house in Vung Tau.
