Thailand: Pakistan Christian Refugee Urgent Medical Need

Responsible for Equality And Liberty (R.E.A.L.) has received a communication from the Pakistan Christian refugee community in Thailand that is seriously ill in the Bangkok Immigration Detention Center and who needs hospital treatment.

The individual’s name and contact information is as follows:

Full name: Noshad Young
Immigration detainee number: 8689
Immigration detention room number: 3

Our contacts in the refugee community state that Mr. Noshad Young is seeking medical treatment. They are reporting that Noshad Young is a heart patient, whose health has been deteriorating over the past month. They are reporting that he has been unable to eat for days, has blisters in his mouth, and is suffering from continuous anal discharge. His family tells the refugee community that his health is in serious jeopardy at this time, and that he is facing a life or death situation.

Our sources in the refugee community state that Mr. Young was taken into custody two and a half months ago, when he went to the immigration detention center to see his son. The reports state that he was taken into custody and his bail was canceled without notification.

Our human rights organization asks that you urgently contact the UNHCR Thailand office and the Thailand Embassy in your nation to get help for this refugee in the Immigration Detention Centre, to get him medical treatment.

We urge the international community to contact
