    Inmates escape from Thai prison using soap

    2 Turkish inmates escaped from a Thailand prison in a daring, if not slippery, escape. Their main tool? Soap. They used soap to cover the bars of their cell in the Takís Mae Sot district. Over time, the soap caused the metal to rust and they were able to break the cell bars. Apparently, this isnít their first cunning escape to Ďslipí away from prison.


    41 year old Murad Yeslikana and 29 year old Rasid Hussim were arrested on charges of entering Thailand illegally and were first incarcerated at the Nong Khai Immigration Police Prison near the Thai-Laos border. The men escaped the prison earlier this year and were missing for 21 days. Thai media didnít report on the details of the inmatesí escape or whereabouts, but say they were found and transferred to the Mae Sot Immigration Prison on February 15.


    Apparently, the inmates really thought through their latest escape. Police suspect the inmates planned for months and believe soap was rubbed on the bars everyday until the metal started to rust. Police say they suspect the inmates used a hard object to eventually break the rusted bars.


    Immigration police are searching for the 2 men and believe the fugitives are planning to cross the nearby border to Myanmar. Or, dare we say, slip through border security.

    There was this Jap guy Yoshi Shiratori who escaped jail 4x, once using his daily ration of miso soup to smear on the bars which over time were weakened by the salt, and out he went. After many years on the lam he finally broke when some kind cop offered him a cigarette (as I recall), confessed to the cop, became a national hero, and there's a memorial to him at some prison museum.

    Thai Police Search for 2 Escaped Uyghurs, Feared to Face Deportation to China

    Thai security forces with sniffer dogs and drones have been combing bamboo groves and cornfields along the country’s border with Myanmar for more than 48 hours, searching for two Uyghur escapees who cut iron bars to break out of an immigration detention center, authorities said Friday.


    Murad Yeslicana, 41 and Rashid Ashim, 29, identified as Turkish nationals, escaped from detention center at Mae Sod immigration office before dawn on Wednesday, police said, while NGOs voiced fear they could be deported to face a grim fate in China like hundreds before them extradited by Thailand.


    Police and military forces used sniffer dogs, a high-rise crane and drones to search for the men, said Police Col. Kriangsak Dangtrinoi, an officer at the Mae Sad immigrant office.


    “We’ve deployed border patrol police and military to search cornfields, they are still out there somewhere without a trace,” he said Friday.


    Gen. Suchart Teerasawat, the deputy national police chief who observed the search operation on Thursday, said the duo may have followed Thai roads before crossing into Myanmar.


    “I believe they followed roads on the Thai side to try to find a crossing into Myanmar,” he told reporters.


    He said the escapees had been transferred from Nong Khai detention center, a province bordering Laos, after they escaped but were recaptured 21 days later.


    This time, Suchart said, “they used soap to get the bars rusty and easy to cut through.”


    The two men are among 50 Uyghurs being held in immigration centers and prison in four locations in Thailand – remnants of a group of about 350 who fled to Thailand in 2014 to escape repression in Xinjiang.


    In 2015, Thailand drew criticism when it forcibly repatriated 100 of the 350 Uyghurs detained in the country to China despite fears they could be punished on their return to the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR).


    Two years after that deportation, the XUAR established a network of internment camps, where authorities are believed to have held up to 1.8 million Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities for political indoctrination. Some of the camps have recently shifted their Uyghur inmates into forced labor,


    The worrisome thing is that the Thai government may try to send the Uyghurs who are in different cells in detention centers across Thailand to China, said Chalida Tajaroensuk, director of the People’s Empowerment Foundation, a Thai NGO which has helped Uyghurs in Thailand since 2014.


    “I’m afraid the Chinese authorities will urge Thailand to send the Uyghurs back to China via Laos and Cambodia,” Chalida told BenarNews on Friday.
