ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the use of full-body imaging scanner or Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) that shows images of naked passengers at airports in Europe and U.S. and whether such exercise conforms to private laws. The author states that AIT impinge one's privateness and in Europe that expresses rights of modesty, privacy and human decency, clearly resists to impose the instrument. Meanwhile, U.S. does not exhibit restraint to AIT scanning due to its fear of terrorist attack.
