Indian escapes from Bali prison

Davidson was jailed for using a fraudulent travel document

Four foreign nationals have escaped the Bali's Kerokoban Prison using a tunnel, the Indonesian police are searching for the prisoners.

Corrections authorities have confirmed that Davidson, along with a Bulgarian, an Indian and a Malaysian prisoner, were found missing from the jail this morning.

The tunnel is just 40cm in diameter and ran from behind the jail clinic, under the jail wall to the outside, ironically just near the guard tower.

Prabawa said police have distributed pictures of the escaped inmates to police stations across Bali.

Malaysian Tee Kok King used a 12-meter-long tunnel that officials suspect "took more than a week to build". "We allege that they escape through the underground hole", he said.

Davidson has just two months and 15 days left of his sentence to serve, at which point he would have faced deportation.

The four were placed in Kerobokan prison's Block B and Sayed was said to be the last to be seen at around 6.30am.

According to the SMH, the 31-year-old Davidson, who was jailed last August after being convicted of misusing a passport belonging to someone else, was two and a half months short of serving his one-year jail term.

He also has a warrant out for his arrest on drug offences in Perth.

After his sentencing at Denpasar Court a year ago, Davidson told AAP how he spent his first few weeks in custody crammed into a small cell with 20 other people.

Kerobokan, like many other Indonesian jails, has grappled with overcrowding.

Prison escapes in Indonesia are not unusual.

Davidson, 33, who fled drug charges in Perth, spent a year in Bali before he was jailed for using fraudulent travel documents.

Prison escapes are fairly common in Indonesia and authorities launched an investigation last month after around 350 inmates broke out of an overcrowded jail on Sumatra island in Riau Province.
