Harassment Of Pakistani Refugees In Thailand

EDM number 1705 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Shannon on 16/10/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Asia and Asylum.

That this House expresses concern about reports that over 100 Pakistani refugees, including 30 children, have recently been rounded up by Thai police and taken to detention centres; notes that Thai Defence Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan has issued an instruction to the Thai Immigration Bureau to detain all foreigners without visas, stating that they will be deported within a month; further expresses concern that refugees risk significant persecution, and possibly violence, if they are returned to Pakistan, particularly those from Christian, Ahmadi and other religious minority backgrounds; and calls on the Government to make representations to its Thai counterparts to prevent the deportation of those refugees at risk of persecution in Pakistan.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
