better than dead, filled with concrete and thrown in the Mekong. People must understand their betters want to have their way.

Sad.

Please, what sort of condescending reply is that?

 "Their betters". 

The people holding him by the arms while he is is in shackles are not his betters.

He is an athlete.

They are police stooges.

Where do you get off saying they are his betters. Or the face saving authorities that want this problem that they created to go away.

It will be resolved when Thailand can wave the problem away without losing face. But they are no ones betters

Agree with all of the above sentiments - the sensible thing for Thailand to do now is to release Al-Araibi pronto, apologise and issue a diplomatic protest against Bahrain. 

 

Meanwhile, why haven't we heard from Mrs al-Araibi? She and her husband were in Thailand on their honeymoon, yet she is being kept out of the picture completely. Why? This is most unusual in such stories (remember the kerfuffle Viktor Bout's wife raised?).

 

Is this the one negative to the whole story? The distraught wife hidden from view because of Arab cultural customs? I, for one, would like to know as this is an important part of the overall scenario.

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).

Oh! Really?

Who cares. I dont. Let him go back to Australia and stay there for the rest of his life. Can we please move on.

My guess is this is being driven from the Thai elites who may have some relationship with Bahrain, none of this makes sense so it's about someone's payday and the sycophants are babbling bs in the most unconvincing way.

And who exactly are these Thai elites you refer to?

Yes, I would like to read your explanation of elites.

 

The term is used again and again and often as a mask, I wonder how others interpret the comment.

Thailand never signed the UN refugee treaty so his refugee status everybody is referring to is as such technically irrelevant from a legal pov. 

 

I find it naive he did not consider this when travelling. He should know as Bahraini his country would wait for its chance to arrest him. I don't say I approve, by now I actually don't know what is true or not anymore. That Thailand now follows its law is imo the most sensible thing to do.

 

UEFA is a hypocrite, indirectly finger pointing at Bahrain while organizing the world cup in Qatar.
