Probe ordered into Hamad International Airport Incident
The Government Communications Office said in a statement yesterday:
That the urgently decided measures taken with some travellers after the discovery of an unidentified new-born child at Hamad International Airport. Were to prevent the perpetrators and those involved from escaping and leaving the country. The statement expressed regrets for any distress or infringements of the personal freedoms of any traveller caused by this action.
“On October the 2nd 2020, a new-born infant was found in a trash bin concealed in a plastic bag and buried under garbage at Hamad International Airport. The baby girl was rescued from what appeared to be a shocking and appalling attempt to kill her. The infant is now safe and under medical care in Doha.” The statement said.
Moreover, the statement said that this was the first instance of an abandoned infant being discovered in such a condition at Hamad International Airport.
The results of the investigation will be shared with our international partners. Qatar remains committed to ensuring the safety, security and comfort of all travellers, transiting through the country.
