Not strictly Cove related but fuck it,
Hakeem Al Araibi is a refugee, he was granted refugee status in Australia due to political persecution for speaking out against the Bahraini government.
He’s a football player, plays for Pascoe Vale in the Vic NPL and for the last 50-odd days he’s been in a Thai jail, he was arrested when he arrived in Thailand to start his honeymoon based on an illegally issued Interpol ‘Red Notice’ from Bahrain.
Thai authorities should have ignored the red notice due to his refugee status, but they picked him up, something they seem to have a habit of doing.
