Hacker’s request for return of ATM card rejected

SINGAPORE — The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) has denied a request by James Raj Arokiasamy, the alleged hacker who goes by the moniker “the Messiah”, to have his United Overseas Bank ATM card returned.

In a letter to his lawyers, the AGC said: “Investigations are currently ongoing in respect of the bank account linked to the ATM card in question.”

Mr M Ravi, James Raj’s lawyer, had applied for the card to be returned so his client can foot the legal fees.

The 35-year-old suspected hacker faces four counts of using drugs between May 2011 and November last year.

He also allegedly accessed the management system of the Ang Mo Kio Town Council website and modified its contents without authorisation. CHANNEL NEWSASIA
