The mother of a 12-year-old Australian girl strip-searched by police during a drug raid said Thursday she was outraged in a case that has sparked a public outcry and calls for a review of the law.

The girl was strip-searched twice in the Tasmanian state capital Hobart last week and her mother, Kristy Gobbey, said her child felt humiliated.

"She was strip-searched and embarrassed; she was treated like a criminal when she shouldn't have been. She feels completely humiliated basically," Gobbey told ABC television.
"We're not anti-police or anything like that, (my daughter) was even going to be one," she added. "She was asking me last week, 'Mum can I be one', and 'I said it's up to you', but now, no.'
The home raided by police was reportedly owned by the 12-year-old's grandmother who is due to be released from Hobart's Risdon Prison this week after serving a drug-related sentence.
