Prejury is the word for giving false information or affdavit to court, if proved it can lead to serious implication, it is not to be related as contempt of court.

False affidavit is perjury. Telling flasshood  on oath in a court of law. Contempt of court is different.

It is nobody's business to mislead the Court. Appropriate action should be taken against such acts of perjury.
