SERIOUS concerns have been raised by Australia after thirteen Australian women were reportedly subjected to invasive internal exams in Qatar.
The incident happened as the women tried to board a flight from Doha to Sydney on October 2, where according to a Channel Seven report, they were taken to an ambulance on the tarmac and ordered to remove their underwear before being examined.
The women were not told the reason behind the examinations, however, they reportedly happened after staff at the Hamad International Airport discovered a prematurely born baby, not known whether to be was alive or deceased, in a bathroom.
A spokesman for the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade told local media that the Australian government had raised the incident with Qatari authorities:
“We have formally registered our serious concerns regarding the incident with Qatari authorities and have been assured that detailed and transparent information on the event will be provided soon.”
