An Australian passenger reveals the details of the Qatar Airways scandal...
An Australian woman revealed her bitter experience, in early October, while traveling on a Qatar Airways plane between Doha and Sydney, Australia.

And Sky News Arabia quoted the British newspaper, The Guardian, that Kim Mills is one of nine women who were taken out of the plane to be subjected to humiliating searches, stripping and examination in Doha, as part of the search for a potential mother of an abandoned infant in the bathrooms of Hamad International Airport. .Qatar Airways female passengers were surprised to allocate ambulances at airports in order to conduct checks for women and make sure that one of them had recently given birth.

Mills confirmed that she was the only woman who had not undergone this humiliating inspection.

She added that she saw a female passenger leave the airport ambulance, crying as a result of the humiliating searches and stripping she was subjected to in order to identify the child’s mother.

When I tried to console her, I asked her what had happened inside the ambulance, and the passenger answered that the authorities had found a baby in the bathrooms, and decided to search all the women.

She was probably the most lucky passenger, Mills said, and she may have survived the search because she was in her 60s, so it seemed out of the question that she had given birth or left her baby in the bathroom.

Later, female passengers on the Qatari plane said that they were asked to remove their underwear in order to allow inspection.

Mills was one of the first passengers to board the plane, and since her ticket was “business”, she immediately changed her clothes to fall asleep, but the plane did not take off.

She added that the captain used to come every hour to apologize for delaying take-off, stressing that he was waiting for permission to do so.

She added that after three hours of this “difficult” situation, one of them came and woke up the Australian passenger and asked her to carry her passport and leave the plane.

When she asked why she was invited to leave the plane, she was told, “The police want to talk to you,” and because Mills did not know what was going on, she walked toward the door of the plane wearing her “pajamas”.

Mills said that she was alarmed at this moment because she did not know what was happening, while she was being driven towards somewhere in the airport, until she saw two ambulances and a crew wearing special clothes for surgeons, and at this moment she suggested that the matter was related to the emerging corona virus, but the matter was not As well.

After the examination, the women were interrogated inside one of the rooms at the airport, and then they were allowed to return to the plane in a state of shock.

Mills said she was in a state of extreme turmoil, because she was not aware of the reasons for the search from the start, and this made her enter into a state of suspicion.

She added that the pilot and the flight attendants did not know their role, while the rest of the passengers were surprised as they saw how a number of women were being taken out.

She stated that what happened to the rest of the women was really terrifying, “I am a mother, and I have three daughters, and fortunately none of them was exposed to that.”

Australian move

The female victims did not talk about the incident during the flight, and preferred to postpone the matter until arriving at Sydney airport, at which time one of the women coordinated with the others to submit a report to the Federal Police in Australia.

On Monday, Australian Foreign Minister Maryse Payne said that what happened during the trip is very disturbing, and went so far as to describe it as an “assault.”

She added that she had never heard of such a matter throughout her life, in any context, and then indicated that the government had made this clear to the Qatari authorities.

In a previous statement, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said that the reports indicated an incident of hostile treatment of women as well as being disproportionate, because what was required was for women to provide their consent.

She stated that she had spoken to the Qatari ambassador in Canberra and said that she would like the Qatari authorities to submit a report on what happened.

Australia refers the incident to the police

For its part, Australia said that an incident that occurred at Doha Airport in Qatar was referred to the Australian Federal Police, according to Reuters.

Today, Monday, Secretary of State Maris Payne confirmed that the women had contacted the Australian government at the time of this incident earlier this month, and that the Australian government had discussed this matter with the Qatari ambassador, noting that the Australian Federal Police had also been informed of this “unusual incident.”

“This is very disturbing and aggressive, related to a range of events. It is something I have never heard of in my life in any context. We have informed the Qatari authorities of our views very clearly,” Payne told the media.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation said that Hamad Airport issued a statement saying that the identity of the newborn who is receiving medical care has not yet been determined.

Payne said the Australian government expects the Qatari authorities, which are still investigating the incident, to issue a report by the end of the week, noting that there is great concern about women agreeing to a medical examination, adding that “these are very private and personal matters.”

An earlier Australian government statement said that reports indicated that the manner of treatment “did not create conditions in which women could freely and consciously give their consent.”
