"Unless they want him we have no reason to keep him here," says Chatchom Akapin, a spokesperson for the thai attorney-general, for AFP.
the 25-year-old Hakeem al-Araibi living in Australia since 2014 and was granted refugee status after fleeing Bahrain, where he in his absence was sentenced to prison for the events associated with the arab spring of 2011.
