FED: Payne welcomes Qatari apology

Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020.


Foreign Minister Marise Payne has welcomed an apology from Qatar over the forced internal examinations of women, including 13 Australians, after an abandoned baby was found at Doha International Airport.

She also commended the findings of a Qatari investigation that showed "illegal actions" had occurred when the female passengers on a Sydney-bound flight were subjected to the examinations on October 2.

"It is an important step that these offences have been referred to the Public Prosecution Office," Ms Payne said in a statement on Friday night.

Earlier a statement from Qatar's Government Communication Office said "standard procedures were violated".

"Those responsible for these violations and illegal actions have been referred to the Public Prosecution Office.

"What took place is wholly inconsistent with Qatar's culture and values," the statement said.
