As a recognised refugee travelling on an Australian travel document, Araibi should never have been subject to an Interpol red notice.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison had also repeatedly pushed for his release, saying that he had written letters to his Thai counterpart Prayut Chan-O-Cha and stressed "how strongly Australians feel about this".

Former Socceroos captain and SBS chief football analyst Craig Foster voiced his support for Al-Araibi throughout his time in prison and took to Twitter to thank the Thai Government.

Al-Araibi has always maintained his innocence, insisting he fled his home country due to political repression and fears he will face torture if sent back.
