Bars to Happiness

Fugitive Surrenders to Bali Police, Saying He Prefers Life on the ‘Inside’

(9/21/2012) A report in The Jakarta Globe casts questions if not new light on the quality of life behind bars in Bali’s.

Muhamad Rawi, together with five other men, escaped police detention in Kuta, Bali on September 15, 2011 while awaiting trial on narcotics charges.

The other five men were captured by police as they boarded a ferry from Bali to Java, but Rawi made good his escape and has been living the life of a fugitive for the past year, spending time doing menial jobs in North Sumatra and Jakarta.

Rawi, who hails from Banyuwangi, East Jawa, reportedly missed the certain security of detention, preferring to be locked up than be living on a constant run from the law.

The man told police “nothing was more miserable than life on the lam.”

Rawi has surrendered himself to the Bali police, declaring his desire to return to school once his period of detention is completed.

Happy to oblige with Rawi’s wishes, the Kuta precinct commander, Gede Putu Dedi Ujiana, declared to Detik.com, “So he is back in our dungeon.”
