Penalty if creditor swears falsely
Debtor & Creditor (DCD) CHAPTER 12, ARTICLE 3
§ 60. Penalty if creditor swears falsely. If a creditor knowingly
swears, in any proceedings authorized by this article, that the
petitioner is, or will become, indebted to him, in a sum of money, which
is not really due, or thereafter to become due; or in more than the true
amount; or that more was paid for a debt, which was purchased or
assigned, than the sum, actually and in good faith paid therefor; he
forfeits to the trustee, to be recovered in an action, twice the sum, so
falsely sworn to.
