Airport officer manhandles traveler.

Jeddah: Arab News

A Passport Department officer is facing punitive action after video footage showed him manhandling a Saudi who had tried to jump the queue after arriving on a flight from Germany.

The man, who arrived at Jeddah airport on a flight from Frankfurt, demanded that his passport be stamped quickly, even though there were other travelers from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in the queue before him.

The man then jumped the queue, prompting the officer to leave his desk and force him back to his place. KAIA authorities intervened and promised strict action against the officer.
