So the procedures for transit passengers have changed from no inspection in 1996 to (cursory) questioning and inspection of documents in 1999 (where Empress was hassled) to this today. All the more reason to go via Asia.

I always thought it could well be a I.N.S. fishing expedition (to catch unpardoned deserters and draft dodgers among others).
