I wonder what happens to the Syrian. Does he get deported to Syria? A war zone? Developed nations consider that a breach of human rights. Or maybe he'll end up permanently incarcerated with the Rohingya refugees?

According the article the Syrian man overstayed more than 4.5 years! Immigration computers did not notice that?  The Immigration police in their processing also investigating who, thai or foreign,  illegally employed this Syrian man? He, at age of 18, sure did not arrived with enough money to remain all these years below the horizon. Right? Must have been working.
