FIFA letter to the Thai authorities concerning Hakeem Al Araibi

Author: FIFA, Published on: 24 January 2019

...FIFA is...respectfully urging the authorities of the Kingdom of Thailand to take the necessary steps to ensure that Mr AI-Araibi is allowed to return safely to Australia at the earliest possible moment, in accordance with the relevant international Standards. We strongly believe that this course of action will do justice not only to Thailand's obligations under international Iaw, but also to basic human and humanitarian values, which we know your country and government hold dear. In that respect, we would therefore like to kindly ask for a meeting with a high-level representative of your government at the earliest possible convenience. The objective of the meeting would be to discuss the situation of Mr. Al-Araibi and receive first-hand information on the status of the proceedings. The meeting would be joined by representatives from FIFA and FlFPro, the global union of professional football players.
