Perjury in UK. Edmonds Marshall McMahon frequently conducts prosecutions for perjury and perverting the course of justice. As you may know, perjury is the intentional act of telling a lie or making a misrepresentation under oath – it is a criminal offence under the Perjury Act 1911. The victims of conduct designed by others to frustrate or hinder the administration of justice often pay a devastating and life-changing personal price. We understand the impact of this type of offence and are experienced in bringing those responsible to justice.

Examples of our recent cases include:

  • A trader found to be lying on oath in Commercial Court proceedings;
  • Lies told during the course of divorce proceedings by both a husband and a wife (separate cases);
  • A husband who attempted to remove his wife from their house in occupation and possession proceedings, during which he lied on oath;
  • A false allegation of harassment made against a client involving police misconduct; and
  • Investigative impropriety by law enforcement authorities including dishonesty.
