PADAWAN: Cyber crime which is on the rise may also not spare the residents of Mambong and local assemblyman Datuk Dr Jerip Susil wants them to be on guard.

He said although Mambong is located in the rural area, crimes could happen, especially among people with mobile phones nowadays.

“We have not received the number of cyber crime cases (in Mambong) and we are still monitoring.”

Dr Jerip who is Deputy Minister of Transport Datuk Dr Jerip Susil gave the reminder during a talk on current issues with the Information Department (Jabatan Penerangan or JaPen) at the Padawan district office on Saturday (May 14).

“We held this programme so that the public is aware that cyber crime can happen to anyone,” he added.

In his speech, he said community leaders are needed to assist government agencies in channelling information that is transparent, accurate, authentic and correct so that it can be well received by the people.

At the meeting, a talk was also given by the head of the Commercial Crime Department of Padawan IPD, Assistant Superintendent Tina Manchu and Sarawak Director (Development) of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) Scott Kueh.

Also present were Kuching district information officer Magdellina Alfred Jeho and Padawan sub-district officer Julius Scott Sapong.
