日前，网络上热传“201名中国公民在曼谷 遭遇野蛮搜身”引起了各界的关注，1月16日电16日，肯尼亚航空公司在官方微博发文回应中国籍乘客遭搜身事件，称应 警方要求全部进行无差别检查，从未对任何乘客有过歧视或不当行为。
A few days ago, it was widely spread on the Internet that "201 Chinese citizens were brutally searched at Bangkok airport in Thailand" attracted the attention of all walks of life. On January 16, Kenya Airlines responded to the incident of Chinese passengers being searched on its official microblog, saying that at the request of Thai police, all of them were subject to indiscriminate inspection and had never discriminated or misbehaved against any passengers.
Kenya Airlines said that some media reported recently that passengers on its kq886 flight from Nairobi to Bangkok had been inspected on January 14, 2020, with some inaccuracies.
Kenya Airlines said that when its flight kq886 from Nairobi, Kenya to Guangzhou stopped in Bangkok on January 14, a passenger reported that he had lost $20000 in cash. The captain on duty suspected that there was theft on board, so he assisted the passenger to report to the Bangkok airport police and security department before the flight arrived in Bangkok.
After the flight arrived in Bangkok at 13:46, the airport police and security personnel asked all passengers on board to get off the plane for non differential inspection. 83 of them refused to get off the plane to cooperate with the inspection. The captain on duty requires all passengers to get off the plane to cooperate with the inspection of airport police and security department personnel for safety reasons. During this period, 5 passengers refused to cooperate and finally left the aircraft with the assistance of the Security Department of the airport.
Airport police and security officials found $2000 in cash in a passenger's belongings and took him (and six of his fellow passengers) away for further investigation. The police let the lost passengers identify, but there was no evidence to confirm that it belonged to the lost cash, so the police released the seven passengers after recording. The lost passenger reported the case at the Thai police station without recovering the lost cash.
During this period, the staff of Kenya Airlines Bangkok Airport received a call from the Chinese Embassy in Thailand, and cooperated with Thai police and security department personnel in the investigation work under the condition of respecting and protecting the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese passengers as required by the embassy.
Kenya Airlines said that at 17:50, all passengers boarded again. The captain on duty refused to board 5 passengers who refused to cooperate with the airport police for investigation and 7 passengers who were investigated by the airport police for safety reasons. At 18:55, the flight took off to Guangzhou.
According to the company, in the consistent spirit of respecting and protecting passengers, the above 12 passengers were free of charge transferred to other airlines' flights from Bangkok to Guangzhou that night, and the passengers have arrived successfully.
Kenya Airlines said that in this incident, the company strictly in accordance with the provisions of the international civil aviation organization, abide by the incident handling procedures and cooperate with the airport police and security department personnel to handle the case. There are 211 passengers (116 Chinese and 95 non Chinese) on the flight, all of whom have been examined without discrimination or misconduct at the request of Thai police. The passengers who lost cash have been put on file with Bangkok police for further investigation.
Kenya Airways said it was sorry for the incident and the subsequent delay and inconvenience to all passengers on board.
