James Raj Arokiasamy, the alleged hacker who signed off as 'The Messiah', has requested that his UOB savings card be returned to him so he can pay lawyers' fees.

On Tuesday, lawyer, Mr M Ravi, told reporters that his client did not want to take up any plea offer made by the prosecution so as not to prejudice himself with a prior conviction.

The prosecution had offered to proceed on two drug charges James Raj currently faces, with the remaining two taken into consideration during the hearing, which took place in judge's chambers.

No position was taken yet on the one remaining charge under the Computer Misuse Act, where James Raj was accused of hacking into the Ang Mo Kio Town Council website last October.
