Five more adults described as "mafia figures" were arrested in Soi Nana.

And that shamefully will include the children, locked up in a small cage 24 hours a day. Hell of a welcome to a country. The story doesn't mention any charges or crimes, which concerns me. Has the anti foreigner sentiment gone so far, that people fleeing persecution are now to be arbitrarily jailed, simply for trying to escape danger? Do International treaties on refugee right not exist here? If there is more to the story, it should be announced.

 

Interesting google translate from the FB Page linked in the OP:

 

Captured Palestinian 27 escaped into the city. The five leading protest leaders in front of the embassy called on the unhcr . Crime Suppression Center for Information Technology With the Immigration Police They were scattered throughout the room in the 144 Ladprao area, where they found the clues of the Palestinians. The escape into the city to live in Thailand and set up a gang of mafia in Soi Nana.

 

A search of five rooms in the area found 22 Palestinians living together in a crowded, six male, nine female, and the rest were young. The UNHRC's refugee groups have been detained in front of the embassy. . Previously, immigration police investigated. Five Palestinian leaders were arrested. At Soi Nana after found the behavior of a gang of mafia. In that area.

 

From now on all Palestinians will be detained. Send to the detention room. Immigration Office Suan Phlu to expand

 Where is the UN and UNHCR in all of that? so living in BKK and rounded as mafia is better for them?... coming to countries like Thailand is not a solution....

I think a week or two in the detention centre will make them think twice about claiming to be refugees.if your going to be a bad boy making money by being mafia in Thailand at least pay under the table and have a visa.

Is it still illegal to form protests in Thailand now ?

I do recall it was banned just after martial law was imposed

Think they will need some divine intervention to get refugee status here or charter the now resurrected phoenix to the med a more probable solution🤔
