Civil Procedure Code (CPC)

Sec. 340 crpc for purjury.


Respected Experts,

          I filed application u/s. 340 Cr.Pc. against my wife who given contradictory as well as false, misleading statement in affidavit i.e. on Oath. This is emerged in her cross. 

         Now I have been told by few advocates that every false statement is not comes under 340 Cr.PC. and chances for conviction is very low. 

        My say is Law doesn't differenciate whether false statement given on Oath i.e. affidavit should be relevent or not. It clearly speaks about 'False'.

       Kindly guide me.

You are technically right only.

 

For filing   PERJURY you need legal help which will take time and money.

 

And merely filing is not enough you have to persue the case which will take years.

 

Other disadvantage is any expert advocate will first cross your evidence and can trap you in similar and many other mistakes. mistakes.

  1. Your lawyer is correct that every false statement does not attract CrPC 340. 
  2. Three ingredients need to be proven for CrPC 340:
    1. False statement was made under oath
    2. Person knew that his statement was false when he made it
    3. Person willfully made such false statement with mala fide intent (mens rea)
  3. Contradictory statements prove only (1). Many other questions will come into play while proving the remaining ingredients.

  • If the lie was about some minor detail, it is easy to argue lapse in memory.
  • If the lie was something immaterial to the reliefs or case at hand then its easy to argue that there was no mala fide intent because she would gain nothing by such false statement.
  • I hope this gives you an idea for why proving the other ingredients of perjury is not trivial.
