Bakamla spokesman Wisnu Pramandita said the agency will hold the ships for a number of infractions.

They include “illegally transferring fuel, concealing the vessels’ identities, violating the right of transit passage, failing to raise their flags and turning off their automatic identification system [AIS].” “The Freya was even responsible for an oil spill.”

According to the Refinitiv Eikon shipping website, both ships have the capacity to carry over two million barrels of oil.


Meteor Creates A Stir Upon Landing in Lampung Province

Residents of Lampung province’s Lampung Tengah regency received a jolt from the sky, after a rock hit the house of one of the locals.

Footage of the meteor, which hit the house of a woman named Katmini on the night of Thursday, January 28 went viral, as netizens were struck by how the sky fell and left a hole on her roof.

Academics were just as intrigued, among them researchers from the Sumatra Institute of Technology or Itera. “We have come to the site of the incident and took a sample of the rock,” said Robiatul Muztaba, a lecturer in Atmospheric Science on Friday, January 29.

“But we cannot verify just yet if the rock was a meteor, or even if it fell from the sky. We also have to study its natural properties, or whether it has magnetic like many meteorites [and asteroids]. We will also examine whether it has black streaks caused by friction with the Earth’s atmosphere.”

The phenomena comes three days after a similar incident occurred in Bali’s Buleleng Regency on January 24.
