A man who has been accused of hacking into the Ministry of Manpower's computer system was charged on Friday with 112 more charges.

Abdul Gafoor Jahangeer Basha, 33, is said to have committed the computer misuse offences between October and December last year.

He was initially charged last December with one count of knowingly causing a computer to perform a function for illegally securing access to data. This allegedly took place on Nov 17, and involved data from the e-appointment system for the ministry's Employment Pass Services Centre (EPSC).

On Friday, the prosecution tendered 112 more charges against him.
