Woman in strop strip for Bermuda airport customs

'You want to see me naked, do it right fu*king here.'

A 36-year-old woman faced with a customs search at Bermuda's LF Wade International Airport rather brilliantly responded by instantly shedding her clothes and telling officers: “If you want to see me naked, you can do it right fucking here.”

Loukai Phillips, a Bermudian native now living abroad, had just flown in from London on 19 August to close her bank account, but had to schedule in an appearance before magistrates on a "indecent exposure in a public place" rap following her protest strip.

Her lawyer, Charles Richardson, explained to the court that because of an unspecified "past association", his client had been strip-searched every time she faced customs operatives.

He admitted it was "an impetuous decision", but said Phillips "took her clothes off out of frustration".

Phillips told airport cops: "I would never do it again, I'm just tired of being searched."

Prosecutors demanded a fine as punishment for the outrage, since "children had been present and Phillips had repeatedly used bad language while removing her clothes".

Magistrates, however, simply slapped her with a 12-month conditional discharge, noting: "If you don’t want to be searched, don't come through customs." ®
