A leading human rights barrister says Qatar must answer for a breach of human rights as CCTV is released from Doha airport.

Footage shows the moment a premature baby was found abandoned at Qatar’s main airport on October 2.

The incident led to an invasive strip-search on at least 13 Australian women onboard a Qatar flight from Doha to Sydney.

Human rights barrister Geoffrey Robertson QC told Deborah Knight it was a breach of human rights.

“Some idiot thought it would be a good idea.

“Qatar Airways must answer and must pay damages.”
