J M started this petition to UNHCR and

18 year old Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun is trapped in a hotel room in Bangkok. She was trying to reach Australia so that she could seek asylum from relatives in Saudi Arabia where she fears she will be persecuted and killed. She has been abused by male family members and locked up in her room for months. 

Instead she was stopped in Thailand and threatened to be deported. In Saudi Arabia, there are guardianship laws which mean she cannot travel without permission from a male family member. Rahaf fears she will be killed upon her return for trying to escape.

Rahaf is sharing her story with the world through her Twitter account. She said:

"My brothers and family and the Saudi embassy will be waiting for me in Kuwait," *

"They will kill me. My life is in danger. My family threatens to kill me for the most trivial things."

Rahaf has been in Bangkok for two days. She’s worried she will lose her life if she goes back to Saudi Arabia. She has called for the UN to support her, pleaded to be granted asylum in another country where she will be safe.

Please help Rahaf by signing this petition.
