Indonesia’s Most Active Volcano Mount Merapi Emits Hot Clouds



JAKARTA, June 9 — Indonesia’s most active volcano Mount Merapi emitted hot clouds three times as far as 1,600 metres to the southwest, the Geological Disaster Technology Research and Development Centre said on Wednesday, reported Xinhua.

“The first blast of the hot clouds occurred at 3.16 am local time with incandescent lava flowing as far as 1,500 metres to the southwest for 129 seconds,” the centre’s head Hanik Humaida said.

Merapi blasted off the second hot clouds at 9.31 am local time as far as 1,000 metres to the southwest for 93 seconds while the third happened at 9.53 am local time flowing up to 1,600 metres for 121 seconds.

Located on the border between Central Java and Yogyakarta provinces, the volcano is now in the status of third danger level.

The centre has urged people not to be in the danger zone within a radius of three km from the crater to keep away from ejections of volcanic materials.

Authorities also asked people to avoid lava flows and hot clouds flowing through rivers that stream down from Merapi such as Kuning, Boyong, Bedog, Krasak, Bebeng, and Putih rivers.

Impersonation Scams Involving Losses of RM57 Mln Reported From Jan-Sept 15 This Year



KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 27 — The police have recorded 1,421 impersonation scam cases through telephone calls nationwide, from January to September 15 this year, involving losses of  RM57,372,102.

Commercial CID (CCID) director, Datuk Mohd Kamarudin Md Din said, based on investigations, the syndicates would contact the victims by impersonating as officers from the police force, Inland Revenue Board, courts, Customs or the Ministry of Health and inform them of their involvements in investigations on crime cases.

“The victims who are duped by the claims would be directed to surrender their banking information such as user passwords, ATM card numbers and transaction authorisation code (TAC) numbers to the syndicates on the pretext of investigations by the authorities.

“The syndicates will also direct the victims to transfer money to the bank accounts of third parties (mule accounts) which they claim belong to Bank Negara officials for investigative purposes,” he said in a statement today.

He said the syndicates would promise the return of the money after several days but the victims only realised they have cheated when they fail to get back their money.

Mohd Kamarudin said that the authorities, especially the police, would not deal through telephone calls especially involving matters related to government departments.

The police only communicate via telephones to make appointments and conduct further businesses at the government offices concerned and would not ask for any personal information such as banking passwords or amount of money in the bank via telephone calls, he said.

He said in efforts to prevent such cases from recurring, the public is urged to be more careful when dealing through telephone calls.

“The public is also reminded against sharing financial or banking information with anyone to avoid from becoming victims of such scams. For inquiries, contact the CCID response centre at 03-2610559/1599,” he said.
