Qatar Airways Avoids Australian Lawsuit Over Women's Invasive Examinations

Five Australian women who underwent strip searches and invasive exams at Doha airport in 2020 have lost their case against Qatar Airways.Qatar Airways Avoids Australian Lawsuit Over Women's Invasive Examinations

They sought damages for mental health impacts after being checked for childbirth following the discovery of an abandoned baby.

The court ruled the airline couldn’t be prosecuted under global travel laws. Justice John Halley found Qatar Airways and its staff weren’t accountable for actions by Qatari police or nurses who conducted the exams.

However, the women can pursue their claim against Matar, a Qatar Airways subsidiary managing the airport, alleging a duty of care breach.

Despite public outrage, the incident’s legal outcome underscores the challenges in seeking accountability under international conventions. The women’s aim, they say, is to prevent such mistreatment in the future.
