Two inmates escaped from a prisoner of Italy in early June this year. However, they left a courtesy note to the guards that they promise to come back in two weeks’ time.
According to the report, the two cousins, Davad Zukanovic, 40, and Lil Ahmetovic, 46, escaped from Rebibbia prison overnight. Police said they scaled a wall using a water hose left in a courtyard.
Meanwhile, the inmates left a note in their cell. They explained they had personal reasons they had to flee, according to an Italian newspaper.
Further, they explained that they “need to protect their children from a nasty business they had got themselves into,” the newspaper said, paraphrasing the letter.
The inmates reiterated that they can only make things right by confronting the problem in person. Both of their wives are also in jail.
At the end of the signed note, Mr. Zukanovic and Mr. Ahmetovic promised to return in about 15 days once everything was sorted.
The two inmates will serve sentences until 2029 for non-violent crimes, including fraud and receiving stolen goods.
In May this year, officials in Italy released hundreds of criminals from prison, including top mafia bosses, to prevent the spread of coronavirus inside the jai.
Inmates who were released include international drug traffickers and members of organized crime gangs. Inmates over the age 70 and in poor health condition were granted house arrests.
