Bahrain issued Interpol Red Notice for Hakeem Al-Araibi, document reveals

Documents reveal that it was Bahrain that issued the Interpol Red Notice which led to the detention of refugee footballer Hakeem Al-Araibi.

 

Earlier this week, officials in Thailand said Al-Araibi was arrested and detained at the request of Australia.

 

“We would not have become involved in the issue had we not received the Red Notice alert from the Australian Interpol and the subsequent formal request by Bahrain for his arrest and extradition”, read a statement issued on Wednesday from Thailand’s Foreign Ministry.

 

The accusation resulted in the Australian Embassy in Bangkok issuing a statement where it denied issuing the Interpol Red Notice against Hakeem.

 

“Due to misreporting on the matter, the Australian Government would like to clear up confusion regarding the Interpol Red Notice issued against Hakeem Alaraibi,” the statement read.

 

“Australia never issued a red notice against Mr Alaraibi.

 

“This red notice was issued by Bahrain on 8 November 2018, shortly before Mr Al-Araibi travelled to Bangkok”.

 

“The red notice should never have been issued because of Mr Al-Araibi’s status as a protected refugee. This was a breach of Interpol’s regulations”.

 

“The Australian Government was not initially aware of this, and in line with Interpol procedure notified Thailand of Mr Alaraibi travel”.

 

 

 

Now, a document sent to Thaivisa from former Australia and Crystal Palace midfielder Craig Foster, who has been leading the fight to free Mr Al-Araibi and has visited him while he is being held in Bangkok, reveals that the requesting country for the Interpol Red Notice was Bahrain.

 

Meanwhile, a head of a match this weekend, Goal.com reported that Western Sydney Wanderers have started their own unusual protest as a show of support for Mr Al-Araibi.

 

The A-League club removed Thai Airways sponsorship hoardings from around the stadium as the now global movement to free Mr Al-Araibi continues to grow.

 

 

 

Footballers Didier Drogba, Giorgio Chiellini, Jamie Vardy and Tim Cahill have all publicly shown support for Mr Al-Araibi.

 

In 2014 Mr Al-Araibi was sentenced in absentia to 10 years in jail for fire bombing a police station.

 

Al-Araibi says he is innocent and that he was tortured in Bahrain because of his political views.

 

Later in 2014 he fled to Australia where he was granted political asylum in 2017.

 

He plays football for Melbourne side Pascoe Vale.

 

He was detained by Thai authorities in Bangkok on 27 November 2018 when visiting the country for his honeymoon.

 

He has remained in custody in Thailand since his arrest and earlier this week was denied bail.

looks like Thailand has been caught out blatantly lying to cover up their stuff up, red notices cannot be issued against protected refugees so they used Australia as a scapegoat for their problem. Have to wonder who is getting benefits by doing this for bahrain and now that the truth is out if Thailand will rescind the arrest as it should never have happened, makes them out to be pretty pathetic and obviously doing bahrains dirty work knowingly against the international requirements

Finally and belatedly, the truth is now out. For 10 weeks, illegally shackled and locked up by Thailand.

Time to let him get back to Australia

from the experience gained in this little screw up, maybe they can now proceed with red notice for Red Bull absconder - seeing the  only protection this little a/h has come in the form of brown envelopes.

In the bigger picture it's probably irrelevant who issued the red notice. Thailand complied with protocols.

Everybody would be applauding if he was a pedophile and not a footballer and alleged refugee.

yes they are so innocent and so humane :cheesy:

and why do they hold him in shackels?

why did they not let him free with a big excuse and a compensation after the red notice was withdrawn?

 

nice try to whitewash them :clap2:

 

and

... in the bigger picture they have no humanity, no respect for other humans and no heart and brain to change their attitude

What is relevant is that Thailand is now holding him in detention against international conventions.

 

The point is that they are legally and morally entitled to let him free. They have nothing to answer to Bahrain for doing so.

 

So just set him free. The details are clear now. They don’t even need to lose face (in a sane world anyway).

He’s not an alleged refugee, he has refugee status in Australia.

 

Given, he was charged with a crime that occurred while he was on live tv playing in a match and has been tortured by his govt in the past, Australia correctly recognised he is a genuine refugee who has good reason to fear being returned to Bahrain.

It is interesting that you mention red bull man. It took days to detain a Bahrain interpol notice.

How many years has it been for Thailand to ISSUE an interpol notice against small ball red bull man

You forget the Thai uniform mentality. They look in a mirror and see face.

I went to Mega Home yesterday. In the furniture and mirror section was - preening themselves......? And 5 of them. (chuckling as I walked past)

The Thai version of event stunk from the start.why would Australian authorities issue a red notice after he was granted refugee status.?

The Thai authorities arent even good liars when it was clear from the start that they had stuffed up. Their excuses weren't plausible, didn't make any sense except to their own uneducated, inabilities to produce a logical sequence of events.
