Mirrors of the hacked websites can be found here.

The People’s Association (PA) was established in Singapore as a statutory board on 1 July 1960 to promote racial harmony and social cohesion.

Earlier the HighTech Brazil HackTeam hacked a Chinese government website and put AntiSecPT, LulzSecPortugal and LearnersOfCuriosity, which somehow relates  the group to online hackavist Anonymous hackers.

HighTech hackers begin hacking websites in August 2012, since then the group has hacked and defaced 3,307 websites from all around the world. 

At the time of writing this article, all the hacked websites were taken down, deface page left by the hackers was removed and >this page can not be found< message was visible on all the websites.
