ICC Note: Aside from the grave crisis of developing an asylum network for displaced Syrians and Iraqis, there is likewise an absence of sufficient support in Thailand for those fleeing persecution from elsewhere in South and Southeast Asia. A Christian Pakistani man, Noshad Young, is desperate for safety and medical attention will perhaps be given neither due to his placement in a Thai detention center under atrocious conditions. Considering the significance that Thailand has allotted to counter-terror efforts, it is only fair that the nation provide significant reforms that enable support for victims of terror, many of whom are Christians.


7/15/2016 Thailand (ucanews) – A middle-aged Christian Pakistani asylum seeker held in a squalid Bangkok detention center is seriously ill and his son says he needs medical attention, reports an UK-based activist group.

According to the Pakistan Christian refugee community in Thailand, 52-year-old Noshad Young has “been unable to eat for days, has blisters in his mouth, and is suffering from continuous anal discharge,” says a blog post by the British Pakistani Christian Association (BPCA).

“His son [who is also detained] believes Noshad is on the verge of death if he is not transferred immediately to hospital,” said the blog post, which also says that Norshad has a heart problem.

Norshad has been held in the center for over two months.
