Former Colombian congresswoman pulls off a “prison break” while on dentist leave

A former Colombian congresswoman escaped prison while on medical leave, Colombia’s prison authority said Tuesday.

Former senator-elect Aida Merlano was sentenced to 15 years in prison for election fraud last month, but was allowed to leave the Buen Pastor prison for a dentist appointment and fled.

According to video footage provided by the dentist, the politician climbed out of a window, jumped on the back of a motorcycle that was waiting for her and took off while her guard was inside.
