"Penalty Of Perjury Meaning"
Penalty of perjury is a concept that underlies the importance of truthfulness in the court system. According to US law, when someone swears to tell the truth in court or when signing a legal document, they are liable for criminal charges if their statements are false. This criminal charge is referred to as penalty of perjury. The purpose of this rule is to ensure that all statements made during a trial or on other legal documents are honest and reliable.
Under penalty of perjury laws, anyone making false statements can be charged with felony offenses and face jail time, fines and other penalties depending on the country’s legal system. In most countries around the world, individuals who make false statements under oath could face up to five years in prison or pay hefty fines while corporate entities may face higher penalties including corporate dissolution or suspension of activities.
