The Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) has denied the alleged hacker known by the moniker "the Messiah" his request to have his ATM card returned.

James Raj Arokiasamy's lawyer Mr M Ravi had applied for the card to be returned to his client in order for the latter to pay for his legal fees.

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."

James Raj, 35, faces four counts of using drugs between May 2011 and November last year. He is also accused of accessing the management system of the Ang Mo Kio Town Council website and modifying its contents without authorisation.
