Beppe Marotta Is My God

Apparently, he's a convicted criminal. I don't really know if there's any truth to that. The media here tend to skew shit; we're still under a military regime after all. Also, the Thais aren't exactly the sharpest tools in the shed; they're not renowned for common sense or logic.
He was accused of participating in the protests in Bahrain back in 2012 and charged with vandalising a police station - even though he was on live TV playing a club football game at the time of the incident. The real reason the Bahraini’s used those BS trumped charges to get to him is because he was an outspoken critic of Sheikh Salman.
Anyway, Australia granted him asylum and has refugee status now and what Thailand is now doing is illegal according to international law. Disgusting situation.
