SINGAPORE - Five men were charged in court on Tuesday for allegedly spray-painting slogans like "We are one we are legion expect us", referring to the global hacktivist group Anonymous, along with "TSK", believed to be the logo of a heavy metal band.
Mohamad Fadzly Aziz, 21; Danial Ryan Salleh, 25; Muhammad Qamarul Arifin Sa'adon, 22; and Muhammad Fitri Abu Kasim, 24, had allegedly sprayed those words at about 4am last Tuesday, on the pavement outside Sunshine Plaza at 91 Prinsep Link.
Minutes later, the four suspects sprayed a similar slogan on a nearby pillar.
At both locations, the four men also sprayed the stylised words "TSK", believed to be a band logo, that they then repeated on the pavement of a taxi stand along Waterloo Street at 4.20am.
At about 5am, Mohamad Fadzly and a fifth accused, Muhammad Redzwan Baskin, 26, were suspected to have defaced a wall and pavement at the Scape building at 2 Orchard Link, with a slogan and the logo.
In court on Tuesday, the five took the stand one at a time as the charges were read to them.
Danial Ryan Salleh indicated through the court translator that he intended to engage a lawyer, and he was given leave by District Judge Kessler Soh to proceed.
