MAS sued by passenger for on-board sexual assault

Laura Bushney, an Australian woman who travelled from Kuala Lumpur to Paris with Malaysia Airlines on August 4, 2014, is suing the airline after alleging she was sexually assaulted by a Malaysia Airlines’ steward on the flight. She is seeking compensation under the Montreal Convention for more than $200,000.

Her alleged attacker, Chief Steward Mohd Rosli Bin Ab Karim, is currently on bail in France awaiting trial after allegedly confessing to the crime and being charged by French authorities. Malaysia Airlines terminated his employment two weeks after the alleged incident.
