Bangkok: Thailand will free by the end of Monday a refugee Bahraini footballer with residency status in Australia, who was arrested more than two months ago, a prosecutor in the case said, after Bahrain abandoned its bid to seek his extradition. Hakeem Al Araibi, 25, who fled Bahrain in 2014 and received refugee status in Australia, was arrested in November at a Bangkok airport while on a honeymoon trip following an Interpol notice issued at Bahrain's request.
