TWENTY-five foreigners have been jailed between four and 12 weeks for submitting bogus educational certificates when applying for jobs here.

The Manpower Ministry (MOM) said on Friday that they were charged yesterday. All pleaded guilty.

They had applied for S Passes and Employment Passes, between November 2012 and June 2013, with fake academic certificates produced in their home country.

MOM found, through checks with certificate issuing institutions and foreign government departments in November and December last year, that the certificates were fake.
