Governments of countries of origin of undocumented migrants and persons whose asylum claims have been rejected have the responsibility to accept the return and reintegration of those persons, and should not penalize such persons on their return. (...) In cases of sudden and massive arrivals of refugees and displaced persons in need of international protection, Governments of receiving countries should consider according to them at least temporary protection and treatment in accordance with internationally recognized standards and with national law, practices and regulations, until a solution to their plight can be found. Persons in need of protection should be encouraged to stay in safe areas and, to the extent possible and as appropriate, near their countries of origin.

In paragraph 21 on the scope of persons inclusive in the phrase “on the basis of disability,” Thailand suggests that the draft General Comment should recognize the non-visible disabilities and trauma-induced disabilities, since both types of disabilities could be an obstacle for persons in exercising full and effective participation in society on an equal basis as others, and would be in accordance with types of persons with disabilities as suggested by the Article 1 of the CRPD. 6. (...) In paragraph 27a and paragraph 27e , which give priority to the consent of persons with disabilities in the decision-making process concerning reasonable accommodation, Thailand views that in case a person is deprived of decision-making ability due to their disabilities, such as those with profound mental disabilities or persons in vegetative state, the General Comment should recognize the role of legal guardian who is responsible for entering into legally-binding agreements in the person with disabilities’ stead with the best interest of his/her charge in mind. (...) Implementation at the national level 17. While Thailand recognizes the importance of constructive awareness and capacity building for public authorities as recommended in paragraph 76e , it also suggests that State parties put an emphasis on, inter alia, the training of fundamental principles of psychology for the personnel whose line of duty concerns the welfare of persons with disabilities.
