Singapore court denies bail to man charged with government website hacking; credits Malaysian police for his arrest, 5 Dec 2013
An Indian-origin man charged with hacking three official websites, including those of the Singapore premier's office and the presidential palace, was today denied bail by a court here.
James Raj Arokiasamy, 35, was charged on November 12 with hacking the Ang Mo Kio district website, whose MPs include Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, and posting the image of a Guy Fawkes Mask used by Anonymous - a global network of hackers.
District judge Soh Tze Bian today said James Raj should not be granted bail because he previously jumped bail and fled to Malaysia after being slapped with illegal drugs consumption charges in 2011.
