Thailand releases Refugee Bahraini Footballer

Reuters reports Thailand on Monday freed a jailed refugee Bahraini footballer with residency status in Australia, after Bahrain abandoned its bid to seek his extradition, and immigration officials said he was immediately driven to the airport.

25 year old Hakeem Al Araibi fled Bahrain in 2014 and received refugee status in Australia.

He was arrested in November last year at a Bangkok airport while on a honeymoon trip, following an Interpol notice issued at Bahrainโ€™s request.
