Singapore — A psychiatric report says the man accused of being “The Messiah” hacker who broke into a town council website is fit for trial in Singapore.
James Raj Arokiasamy, 35, was declared fit to stand trial in the report submitted to the court by the Institute of Mental Health on Tuesday.
He was sent for psychiatric evaluation on November 12 after allegedly telling police he suffers from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
The report indicated he showed signs of ADHD, but they were not enough to fulfil the diagnostic criteria and he is therefore not of unsound mind, according to The Straits Times.
The court on Tuesday ordered him to be remanded in police custody until December 3 for further investigations.
The prosecution said he is “reasonably suspected as having carried out a series of hacking incidents”.
He is also suspected of having created the video posted on YouTube that threatened a wave of cyber attacks against the Singaporean government to protest against licensing rules for news websites.
