French drug smuggler moving to Indonesia’s ‘Alcatraz’ after escape bid

JAKARTA (AFP) – A French drug smuggler who briefly faced execution in Indonesia will be transferred to a high-security prison island, dubbed the nation’s ‘Alcatraz’, following a second escape bid, a corrections official said yesterday. Felix Dorfin, 35, was handed a capital sentence after his arrest last year at the airport in Lombok, a holiday island next to Bali, but his execution was commuted to 19 years in prison in August.
