Saudi airport officer held for 'rude sitting position'

The unnamed officer was suspended this week after the photograph triggered online criticism

Saudi authorities arrested a local airport officer after social networks published a picture of the man showing him in a “rude sitting position” while checking the passports of passengers, a newspaper in the Gulf Kingdom reported on Sunday.

The picture, which was captured by a Saudi passenger at the airport in the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah, showed the uniformed officer giving his back to the passengers as he sat on the desk and his legs rested on a chair.

Newspapers had earlier said the unnamed officer was suspended this week after the photograph triggered online criticism by hundreds of viewers.

“The passport officer was ordered arrested after his suspension this week......the director of the passports department ordered his arrest for questioning about his behavior and uncivilized way of sitting,” the Arabic language daily Arar said.
