Fair Trials’ letter to the Australian government about Hakeem Al-Araibi’s case

December 13, 2018 - INTERPOL
Download PDF

On 12 December 2018, Fair Trials wrote to Peter Dutton, the Minister for Home Affairs in Australia, to express our serious concerns regarding the statement made by the Department of Home Affairs regarding Hakeem Al-Araibi. Even though Al-Araibi is recognised by the Department of Home Affairs as a refugee under international law, he was arrested in Thailand last month because of an INTERPOL Red Notice. Now, with the Australian Federal Police (‘AFP’) actively facilitating the process, he is facing extradition to Bahrain, the very country he fled. Read our letter above.
