Four foreigners escape from Bali prison using tunnel

Police identified the four as Australian Shaun Edward Davidson, 33, Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov Iliev, 43, Indian Sayed Mohammed Said, 31, and Malaysian Tee Koko King bin Tee Kim Sai, 50.

Shaun Edward Davidson waiting to be transferred to Kerobokan jail in Bali after being charged with possessing another person's identity and overstaying his visa in April past year.

Four foreign inmates escaped early Monday from the prison on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, police said. The tunnel had a diameter of 50x75 cm and is about 12 metres long.

"The tunnel is about 12m (39 ft) long and we suspect it took more than a week to build", Nainggolan said, adding police had launched a search and believed the men were still in Bali and not far from the prison. He also believed that the men were still in Bali.

"We conducted some action, as questioning some inmates in the same block with them and the prison guards on duty last night".

Kerobakan has capacity for 323 inmates, but houses more than four times that number at 1,378, according to government data.




Details are still sketchy of exactly how the escape went down and the four escapees are still on the run.

He's also wanted in Perth, Australia for drug charges and reportedly left the country for Indonesia on the same day that he was due to appear court.

Indonesian authorities arrested Davidson after finding him with a passport that had been reported missing in 2013 by its owner, Michael John Bayman.

An Australian jailed for a year for using another man's passport has escaped from Kerobokan jail.

Davidson is serving a one-year sentence for an immigration offense, while Iliev is serving a seven-year sentence for money laundering and another offense.

Shaun Edward Davidson, from Perth, was serving a 12-month sentence after being convicted in September past year of using fraudulent travel documents.
