Fugitive Aceh Prisoners Placed on Indonesia's 'Wanted List'

More than two dozen prisoners who escaped during last week's tsunami
panic in Aceh were declared fugitives on Monday, Aceh officials said.

"We’ve put those that haven’t returned on the wanted list. We declare
them fugitives as they have abused our regulation on discipline,”
Yatiman Edi, the head of the Aceh office of the Justice and Human
Rights Ministry, was quoted as saying by republika.co.id.

The 28 — inmates of the Sigli penitentiary in Pidie, Aceh — were among
the 192 prisoners released on Wednesday after a powerful quake off the
coast of Sumatra triggered tsunami fears. Police, fearing for the
inmates safety, allowed them to evacuate the prison.

The penitentiary is located some 80 meters from the coast line.

When a large tsunami failed to form, the prisoners were expected to
return to jail. Out of the 192. 28 remained missing on Monday.

Indonesian Police Detain 34 Suspected Asylum Seekers

Police in Sumbawa, West Nusa Tenggara, have arrested 34 immigrants
from Somalia and Ethiopia believed to have escaped from a boat that
began taking on water while headed for Australia.

Nine were arrested on Saturday morning after a tip-off from residents.
They told police they were part of a larger group that had planned to
sail from Lombok to Australia, but the engine on its boat broke down
when it reached Sumbawa.

Based on their testimony, police went on to arrest another 25
immigrants from the same group.

Police said two Indonesians whom the immigrants said had offered to
take them to Australia had fled after the boat broke down. Refugee
advocates said the boat was believed to be carrying 60 asylum seekers
when it placed a distress call to Australian authorities on Wednesday.
