RANDOM SCANNING OF ELECTRONIC GADGETS IN SOME AIRPORT IN SAUDI AND QATAR.IS IT A RUMOR OR A FACT?
Watch the video and be aware!

I had this paper given to me by the manpower agency and had me signed a waiver regarding this issue. 

The paper has these words; 

Please be advised that all Airports in GCC have a new rule regarding arriving and departing Overseas workers carrying electronic devices. This has not been published to the public, but pleases advices all that are traveling GCC airports. 
-All Electronic devices will be submitted for check up before immigration section. 
-Devices includes Cellular phones with camera and memory card, flash disks, external hard drive, Laptops / notebooks / pc, iPod, itouch, mp3 players with memory cards. 
- A special USB device will be inserted to the electronic devices that you are carrying. This special device can scan all videos and pictures, jpg, bmp, avi, etc, contents of your laptop / cell phones, and will be recorded to their main computer. 
-All devices with nude pictures in it will be confiscated immediately. There will be no fines, and refusal will send you to jail and deportation. -Laptops with pirated software’s will also be confiscated. This rule has been applied already and is being practice in Saudi, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Jeddah Airports. This is excluding Bahrain airport. 

Does anyone of you know about this rule? I made a google search and found out that this "rumor" is already making rounds in the internet since early 2010.

I made a google search and found out that this "rumor" is already making rounds in the internet since early 2010.So wether it is a fact or a rumor,we better be aware of it.
