Escaped Malaysian prisoner believed to be in home country, say Bali police

JAKARTA: Indonesian police have received information that Malaysian national Tee Kok King, who escaped from Bali's Kerobokan Penitentiary in June along with three other foreign inmates, may be in his home country.
Another escapee, Australian national Shaun Edward Davidson, is still believed to be in Indonesia, Bali police chief Insp Gen Petrus Reinhard Golose said on Tuesday.
"We have been coordinating with Malaysian authorities, as we suspect he is already in Malaysia," Petrus told journalists.
The police chief said Malaysian authorities were willing to help find Tee. However, should the inmate really be in the country, he could not be extradited to Indonesia, given that Malaysian law prohibits citizens from being extradited from the country, Petrus said.
"It is a real obstacle that the inmate is (probably) already in his country, but we will continue to cooperate with Malaysia," he said.
As for Davidson, who is believed to still be in Bali, Petrus said police would intensify monitoring at the Timor-Leste border in East Nusa Tenggara.
Two other inmates, Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov Iliev and Indian Sayed Muhammad Said, were arrested in Timor-Leste four days after their escape.
The four inmates escaped on June 19 through an old unused tunnel.
Davidson recently made headlines after he allegedly taunted police by uploading a wanted poster with his face and fingerprints to Facebook.
Arrested in early 2016 for over-staying his visa, Davidson was also found to have used multiple fake identities. - The Jakarta Post/Asia News Network.
