Accused LulzSec member Ryan Cleary has been sent back to jail after breaking the terms of his bail by illegally accessing the internet and making contact with the group's leader Sabu.
Cleary's lawyer, Karen Todner from solicitors Kaim Todner, confirmed that the 19-year-old has been re-jailed on 2 April.
"Yes, he's been arrested for breach of bailed [sic] is in custody," she said in an emailed statement.
According to the Associated Press (AP) Cleary breached his bail conditions during Christmas 2011, sending a number of electronic messages to LulzSec's former leader Hector Xavier Monsegur - aka Sabu.
Metropolitan Police reportedly re-arrested Cleary on 5 March, just one day before Monsegur was revealed as a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) informant, suggesting the FBI may have passed details of the contact to the UK authorities.
Cleary was originally arrested in May 2011 as a result of a joint operation between the UK's Metropolitan and Essex Police forces and the FBI.
Charged with offences contrary to the Computer Misuse Act, Cleary is accused of attacks on the UK Serious Organised Crime Agency, British Phonographic Industry and International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.
Since news of Cleary's arrest was first revealed hacker collective LulzSec have constantly maintained that he was not a member, claiming he only hosted a chat service used by the group.
Cleary is currently being held in Chelmsford Prison, about 35 miles northeast of London, while waiting to re-appear before a judge in May.
