TWENTY-two Indian nationals have been charged by the Manpower Ministry (MOM) for providing false salary information to apply for their work passes.

Applicants of Employment Passes and S Passes must meet minimum salary requirements.

But the workers declared they will be paid monthly salaries of between $2,400 and $4,550 despite knowing that they would be paid less, said MOM in a statement on Wednesday.

They were employed by four firms: Vina Trading, Manthra Enterprises, Magnaton Ventures and Nalla Traders. All four companies are franchisees of local convenience chain store 7-Eleven.
