A Malaysian was among four foreign inmates who escaped from Kerobokan prison on the Indonesian resort island of Bali using a tunnel, the head of the prison said on Monday.

Tony Nainggolan named the Malaysian, Tee Kok King along with Australian Shaun Edward Davidson, Bulgarian Dimitar Nikolov and Indian Sayed Muhammad.

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

According to, Tee was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison in the Denpasar District Court on Sept 15, 2016, for his part in trying to smuggle narcotics into Indonesia.

Tee was arrested in Jan 2015 at the Hotel Amaris in Denpasar shortly after landing in Bali on a flight from Malaysia. He was found in possession of 22g of methamphetamine at the time of his arrest.
