Thai Authorities Embark on Abduction Sweep against Palestinian, Arab Refugees

The Thai authorities launched on Sunday an abduction sweep targeting Palestinian and Arab refugees stranded in Bangkok. Several Palestinian, Syrian, and Iraqi migrants have been detained for overstaying their visas.

The refugees lashed out at the UNHCR for its apathy vis-à-vis the daily crackdowns perpetrated against them in the Thai territories.

The refugees also said the UNHCR demanded that the Thai police arrest migrants involved in a rally staged a couple of days earlier outside of its office in Bangkok and provided photos and addresses of the migrants over allegations of attempted sabotage.

Activists said UNHCR reached out to the refugees and their spokespersons and demanded that they cease their protest moves, which it said will not help to work out their situation as no other body by the UNHCR is officially mandated to follow up on their condition.

The refugees continue, meanwhile, to appeal to the international humanitarian institutions and NGOs to urgently step in and pressurize the Thai authorities to cease its crackdowns and refoulement threats against migrants and release all those detained in Thai detention centers.
