A Syrian national has petitioned the Justice Ministry to investigate the detention of his son and himself, and alleged extortion, by some police and three police volunteers from Lumpini police station.
Both the father, Yasur al-Halabi Mohammad (from the Thai script), and son, Wael al-Halabi Mohammad (from the Thai script), have documents issued by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees recognising them as refugees, the 47-year-old father said through an interpreter on Monday, when he lodged his petition with the ministry through deputy permanent secretary Dusadee Arayawuth.
Panchaphat Lertthiraruangkul, the interpreter, said the Syrian and his 23-year-old son migrated to Thailand three years ago. The son worked at as a barber on soi Nana 3 before his arrest.
