An Immigration and Checkpoints Authority analyst was jailed for two months for corruption and fined a total of $9,000 for computer misuse on Friday.

Ng Chun Wei, 35, was also ordered to pay a penalty of $700.

He had pleaded guilty to accepting $500 from Mr Mohamed Saif Mohamed Salleh, 44, to facilitate the hawker's application for his children's Singapore citizenship in November 2010.

Mr Saif has two children from his second marriage to a Filipino national and had tried previously to apply for the kids' Singapore citizenship without success.
