A court in Thailand asked on Monday a government application to release the extradition case against a soccer player who was facing his native native in Bahrain, where he said he was likely to be imprisoned and tortured it. The move is the way for the player, Hakeem al-Araibi, to return to Australia, where he has refugee status.
Mr. Al-Araibi, 25, was a star defender for the national baroque soccer team, in the small Gulf of 2011 in confusion of Arab interviewers. He said he did the government's security forces. He now plays soccer for a small team in Melbourne, Australia.
Lawyer told Mr al-Araibi that she was hoping to be released from custody later on Monday afternoon and fly back to Australia as soon as her departure was allowed.
"This is the best result," said lawyer, Natalie Bergman. "It should happen from the beginning, but later than anything better."
