The last time my bag was searched they left a note.

They definitely leave notes at least some of the time. Can you prove that they leave a note every time?

Why do you even care? Say you know they searched your luggage. What is it exactly that you will do with that information?

An activist carrying a laptop or other electronics is going to want to know if they've been compromised.

Why would an activist let their laptop out of their sight for hours to be touched by unknown, almost certainly hostile people?

That would be a waste of time to prove, if it's even possible.

That's the point. A lack of a note doesn't mean lack of having had your bags searched, mussed, lightened.

And if they just "forgot" to leave a note?
