Hakeem al-Araibi, a refugee living in Australia, fears he'll be tortured if he's deported from Thailand to his native Bahrain.

Despite international appeals to free the 25-year old, a court in Bangkok denied bail on Monday and adjourned the case until April.

He spent more than two months jailed in Thailand after being arrested at Bangkok's airport by Thai police acting on an Interpol "Red Notice" issued by Bahrain.

Al-Araibi is being compared to a young Saudi woman who faced a similar dilemma in Thailand last month.

How should the case be handled?
