Thailand: Amnesty International calls on Thailand to extend legal protections to refugees and asylum seekers in 2017
On World Refugee Day 2017, Amnesty International acknowledges the role the Royal Thai Government has played in hosting and supporting large refugee populations over several decades and welcomes its recent commitments to improve the protection of the rights of refugees and asylum seekers in the country. However, despite these undertakings, Thailand has failed to consistently protect the rights of refugees and asylum seekers, who lack domestic legal status in Thailand and are vulnerable to arbitrary and indefinite detention and forcible returns.
