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.
