Chatchom said that Al-Araibi must now be released as soon as possible.

The Bahraini footballer Hakeem al-Araibi is set to return to Australia after Thai authorities withdrew an extradition case against him. He has denied those charges and says the case is politically motivated.

On Monday evening, Foster tweeted his thanks to Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and his Government. Again, no specifics on their talks was offered.

Al-Araibi plays for Pascoe Vale FC in Melbourne.

Pacers sign veteran Wesley Matthews
The 32-year-old wing player signed with the Pacers on Sunday after he received a buyout from the Knicks, the team announced . In 45 games with Dallas, Matthews made 44 starts and averaged 12.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists.

Western Sydney Wanderers have thrown their support behind detained refugee Hakeem Al-Araibi by removing a Thai Airways sponsorship board from their stadium.

In November past year, he and his wife flew to Thailand for their honeymoon, believing his Australian visa allowed him to travel safely, but they were detained immediately when they landed at Bangkok's Airport in response to an Interpol "red notice".

Al-Araibi has said he was blindfolded and had his legs beaten while he was held in Bahrain previously. Bahrain has a Shiite majority but is ruled by a Sunni monarchy. He said he believed he was targeted for arrest because of his Shiite faith and because his brother was politically active in Bahrain.
