One thing:

Could this be a result of the common (among CAs) bug of requiring entry
of a US/Canada State/Province regardless of country, forcing applicants
to fill in random data in that field?

My answers on the particular issues are stated inline.
But the thing I want to address is how could (in this case Digicert) validate 
such data and issues certificates? I am investigation more of them and afraid 
even linked company names or registration numbers could be false. Shouldn't 
those certificates be revoked?

You are correct that it appears these certificates should not have issued. 
Hopefully Jeremy and Ben from DigiCert can comment on this thread (
 for the archive) with details about the issues and the steps taken.
