FORMER SOCCEROO CAPTAIN, CRAIG FOSTER TALKING WITH AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER, SCOTT MORRISON AND NEW AUSTRALIAN CITIZEN, HAKEEM AL-ARAIBI STORY: Refugee footballer Hakeem Al-Araibi met with Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison after being granted citizenship on Tuesday (March 12).

Al-Araibi, 25, fled Bahrain in 2014 after he was accused of crimes committed during the Arab Spring protests of 2011 and was granted refugee status in Australia.

He was apprehended when he flew to Bangkok for a honeymoon following Bahrain's calls for his arrest.

During the almost three months of his detention in Thailand, Araibi's case drew international criticism and a public campaign to free him gained momentum, spearheaded in Australia by footballers and rights activists.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison also lobbied for his release and after the citizenship ceremony in Melbourne Morrison met Araibi and handed him an Australian flag lapel from his own jacket.
