Perjury is committed by a person who wilfully and upon oath or in a form allowed by law to be substituted for an oath, makes, in the course of a judicial proceedings before an authority of competent jurisdiction, a statement of fact which he knows to be false or does not know or believe to be true. The Criminal Procedure Act, 1955 (Act 56 of 1955) provides explicitly that an accused may on conviction be punished with the penalties prescribed by law for the crime.
One can lay a charge of perjury at a police station.
