Kathmandu's Tribhuvan airport has banned pants with pockets for employees. Authorities hope it will help prevent bribes. From BBC News:
The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) said it had sent a team to the airport to "observe the growing complaints about the behaviour of airport authorities and workers towards travellers".Nepal bans airline staff pockets (Thanks, Carlo Longino!)
"We discovered that the reports were true," spokesman Ishwori Prasad Paudyal told the AFP news agency.
"So we decided that airport officials should be given trousers with no pockets."
