    Apparently some prisoners have escaped from Kerobokan jail.

    Traffic around the area might be worse than usual.

    Australian man Shaun Davidson escapes from Kerobokan jail in Bali

    AUSTRALIAN man Shaun Davidson has reportedly escaped from Kerobokan Prison in Bali.

    He was one of four foreign inmates to escape from prison.

    The men, including a Bulgarian, a Malaysian and an Indian prisoner, are thought to have escaped through a small underground tunnel, less than one metre wide, behind the prison clinic.

    The other escapees are: Dimitar Nikolov Iliev, Sayed Mohammed Said and Tee Kok King Bin Tee Kim Sai.

    Davidson was imprisoned in Indonesia’s notorious Kerobokan jail last year for using another man’s passport and suggesting it was a “chubby” photograph of himself.

    He aroused the suspicions of authorities when he signed into guesthouse in Kuta under a passport with the name Michael John Bayman. Davidson said he had lost his passport and found Mr Bayman’s at another hotel.

    Davidson fled to Bali after being charged on drug offences in Perth. He managed to spend a year “partying and boxing” in Bali before being caught.

    He was jailed for one year and fined 100 million rupiah ($A10,000) at Denpasar District Court in August. But he decided to serve an extra five months in jail rather than pay the fine.

    Davidson was due to be released in August.

    That guy must be out of his mind to escape with only 1.5 years. Why the balinese police hasn't published photos?

    You can see their mug shots in this story: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-19/four-prisoners-escape-in-bali/8631510

    I believe the Australian guy is wanted for drug charges in Australia, which is why he might have wanted to escape. The Peruvian guy who escaped recently got as far as Sumatra with a fake passport and almost made it out of the country.

    This whole story reads like a piece of fiction. Four inmates tunneling out of a prison with buckets and forks? Not to mention it was right on one of the busiest roads in Kerobokan with no witnesses. Then, the local authorities sent a prisoner down the hole to make sure they didn't get stuck in there and drown. All he found was a leftover torch still shining brightly.

    It's going to be an interesting story for sure.
