Two former Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) specialists were each jailed for four months on Thursday for accepting bribes from their then colleague to facilitate the granting of social visit passes for foreigners to enter Singapore.

Mohamed Nazrul Noor Mohamed, 34, and Lukmanulhakim Samsun, 29, were also ordered to pay a penalty of $100 and $50 respectively.

Nazrul pleaded guilty to accepting $100 from his former colleague Mohammed Mustaffa Mohabat Ali in return for granting 30-day social visit passes to two Filipinas at Tuas Checkpoint on May 8, 2011.

Lukmanulhakim admitted to a similar charge of accepting $50 from Mustaffa on Jan 10 that year to grant a visit pass to a Filipina.
