Incriminate Perjury​

The people of Democracy Craft, through their elected Representatives in the Congress and the force of law ordained to that Congress by the people through the constitution, do hereby enact the following provisions into law:

3 – New Law
(1) Giving knowingly incorrect testimony to the Government shall be considered Perjury.
(2) At the beginning of court cases, both parties are to be made aware that giving knowingly false testimony is highly illegal.
(3) Perjury charges may be made against any individual and no individual may be convicted of Perjury without a trial.
(4) Any person convicted of Perjury may appeal their conviction to be considered by a higher court unless either no higher court exists or the higher court declines to hear their appeal.
(5) Perjury shall carry a sentence up to 2 hours of jail time and a fee of up to $50,000 but no less than $1,000, at the discretion of the court.
