Press Release

11th February 2019

FIFPro is delighted that Hakeem al-Araibi has been released. We trust Hakeem can now live in peace in Australia and, as a protected refugee, regain his lawful right to travel without fear.

We salute the tireless campaigning of Craig Foster and Professional Footballers Australia to secure Hakeem’s release. We also recognize the solidarity shown by scores of football players who helped raise awareness about his wrongful detention.
