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

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).

Which "international conventions"?

 

The point actually is that Thailand is legally holding him in accordance with Thai law and a court will decide the outcome, not any Thaivisa poster!

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

Thailand did ask Interpol to issue a notice!

The guy's not an "alleged refugee."  He has official political asylum status in Australia.....

 

Bahrain never should have been able to get a Red Notice issued thru Interpol. I can understand Bahrain wanting the guy. I can't understand Interpol accepting/issuing a Red Notice for a guy who has asylum status, apparently in violation of their own rules.

 

And likewise, why is Thailand arresting and jailing a guy who has legal asylum status and thus never should have been the subject of a Red Notice in the first place?

 

A red notice was in force and he was therefore subject to it when he was arrested, this has been reported so many times.  It was cancelled 3 days after he was arrested, after the legal process had been started after someone, not Thailand, messed up.

Yes, and Thailand can undo it immediately  if they have the will.

Not legally, they can't!  There's a legal process underway.

But Thailand has proceeded to handle his case as if he was the subject of a legitimate Red Notice, when it's clear to everyone by now that he never should have been the subject of a Red Notice in the first place, and according to your comment above, it's already long since been cancelled.

 

I wasn't blaming Thailand for the original debacle. I was questioning why Thailand is continuing to treat the guy legally like he's a criminal, including denying him bail, when from all legal indications, he's not (except if Bahrain happened to get their hands on him).

As for Thailand, what is there to say about this callous and inhumane junta regime. The sad part is they seem to enjoy being the way they are. As justification they make some pathetic excuse that the Court processes cannot be reversed or halted.

There is this to be said, Thailand has acted legally in line with it's legal obligations all along.  That the legal process cannot, at this stage, be halted or reversed is not "pathetic", neither is it an excuse, it is correct.

🤔🤔🤔 there’s so much wrong with this post, it beggars belief.

 

thailand did not comply with protocols.... and has been shown to have being lying, at the state level

 

the guy isn’t a pedophile, so using it as an analogy is ridiculous grandstanding to attract attention... well done, that worked

 

there is nothing alleged about his refugee status

 

and bigger picture? The bigger picture is that thailand is getting away with trampling on the rights of citizens of another country, without due cause... stuff up aside, this should have been sorted within hours, or perhaps days, but not weeks and months.

 

crikey..... I can’t understand how any expat would applaud the unjust detention of a foreign citizen.... it could be you next, for no other reason than your a foreigner and constable somchai doesn’t understand the law....

And there's so much wrong with your post that it beggars belief!

 

Thailand absolutely did comply with all legal protocols!  There was a red notice in force when he was arrested!

 

At the time of his arrest his refugee status was only "alleged".

 

"The bigger picture is that thailand is getting away with trampling on the rights of citizens of another country, without due cause..."

Thailand is trying to sort it out through the correct, legal process!  It is not "trampling on" anyone's rights.

 

"...it could be you next, for no other reason than your a foreigner and constable somchai doesn’t understand the law...."

Garbage.  That would only happen if you've committed an offence, been found guilty of it in a court of law, sentenced and then do a runner that prompts the issue of an Interpol notice.

Excellent point regarding why issue a red notice when you have already accepted/approved  refugee status.

Unfortunately not only the Thai authorities missed that point, so did many TVF posters in their collective wisdom trying to air superior knowledge. 

It's not the Thai authorities job to examine the aspects of the issuance of every Interpol notice and to have to go through a court process to decide if it is valid!   If there is one it is reasonable to assume that it was properly issued.

Doesn't matter, when he was arrested he was subject to a red notice!

 

"I was questioning why Thailand is continuing to treat the guy legally like he's a criminal..."

Because he is now subject to a court case that has to be heard that cannot be blamed on Thailand!  Imagine the uproar from Thaivisa posters in particular if Thai courts suddenly started to throw out or cancel cases, willy-nilly without them ever being heard.

aha, unless this Red Bull absconder has learnt to kick a football around as a part-time job, and has converted to Islam. Which as we see would make him untouchable and able to flaunt any and all laws of all countries as he chooses otherwise the internet will erupt in tears.

 

 Isn't it amazing nobody cares about the poor Bahraini police officers who were brutally attacked in their station by a large mob throwing molotov cocktails. Did the police officers have young families dependent on Daddy bringing home the monthly wage and food on the table? How did the families feel watching the news that evening? Were the officers feeling anxiety as the mob launched their attack? Were they terrified? 

 

 This whole issue is so one sided. The Thai IDC is full of families and even young children. Children that definitely did not launch a violent assault on a police station.

I doubt anybody doesn't care about those who suffered during this attack and I have not seen anyone deny it happened.

 

However that is no reason to send an innocent man back to face the consequences of an attack he had no involvement in.

the purpose of courts and prosecutors is to obtain justice. As soon as it became clear that the original complaint again him was wrong/invalid and had been withdrawn, the Thai police or prosecutor should have withdrawn the case against him, and/or, the court before which he appeared just the other day should have dismissed it as a legally incorrect injustice that had its origin in error.

 

His original conviction (it was not a "wrong" or "invalid complaint") has not been "withdrawn"!
