January 23,2019

The international football community and human rights groups around the world are stepping up their efforts to free soccer player Hakeem al-Araibi.

Al-Araibi, who has refugee status in Australia, has been held in a Thai jail for 58 days.

He was arrested on his honeymoon in Bangkok, after Bahraini authorities issued an interpol red notice which has since been cancelled.

Guests:

Fatima Yazbek, a Director from the Gulf Institute for Democracy and Human Rights

Craig Foster, former Socceroos captain and SBS TV host
