Two foreign inmates escaped from Bali prison captured in East Timor

Vastavam web: Two foreign inmates, including an Indian, who tunnelled their way out of a Bali prison have been captured in East Timor, police said today, in the latest prison break case in Indonesia. Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov Iliev and Indian Sayed Mohammed Said were caught at a hotel in Dili yesterday after arriving on a boat illegally from Indonesia.The pair were originally caught for entering East Timor without legal documents, said East Timor senior police official Henrique da Costa, but police later concluded the pair were two of the four Bali fugitives.

“We will most likely hand them back to the Indonesia Friday afternoon now that we know they are fugitives,” da Costa told AFP. Davidson — who was going to be freed within months — and the Malaysian inmate are still on the run.The Bali jailbreak came days after dozens of prisoners swam through flood waters to escape an Indonesian jail in Jambi province after one of its walls collapsed. Most were later recaptured.
