KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman will contact its Indonesian counterpart in connection with four foreign inmates, including a Malaysian, who escaped from a prison in Bali, said Bukit Aman Special Branch Department director Comm Datuk Seri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.
“We have to find out whether the Malaysian inmate was held for terrorism-related crimes or other offences. We will contact our Indonesian counterpart as soon as possible,” he said yesterday.
It was reported that the four – Malaysian Tee Kok King, Australian Shaun Edward Davidson, Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov and Indian Sayed Muhammad – dug a tunnel to make their escape from the Kerobokan Prison in Denpasar.
Indonesian police suspected that the 12m tunnel took more than a week to build. A manhunt has been launched and police believe the four escapees are still in Bali.
