The world is unanimous, apart from the tiny, backward Gulf state of Bahrain, from where the man fled flagrant violations of his rights as a human being. Shame on Thailand!
Acting in this way, Thailand has proved it is a dangerous place for holidaymakers, a place that vacationers may now choose to stay away from.
Several of my sports friends have already cancelled planned trips to Thailand.
It is high time Thailand freed this UN-recognised refugee. Only this would perhaps limit the damage already done to a country that seems to profit from other people’s misery. Thailand should join the rest of the civilised world and sign the UN convention on refugees!
