Glitter was ordered to sign the register after serving nearly three years in prison in Vietnam for abusing two young girls. The BBC reports Glitter's lawyer believes Glitter won't get a fair hearing in the case because of media attention.

Glitter's name will stay on the registry for life. He must tell police if he moves, if he stays somewhere else for 7 days or if he travels abroad for more than 3 days.
