1. Yes, any witness who gives false testimony, whether in court, or to the Gardai can be either criminally prosecuted for perjury or sued for damages by a person affected by the perjury. Accordingly, if you have been harassed and someone has given incorrect testimony about the incident, then you can firstly make a complaint to the Gardai about it and seek that a criminal prosecution be brought. Secondly, if this does not happen, as there is a high threshold of proof for a criminal prosecution, you can sue them yourself for damages for any harm caused by the incorrect testimony, as perjury is a tort or civil wrong. In either of these options, you can ensure that the person who has given the incorrect testimony accounts for their perjury.

Hello,

Just a quick reminder, there is an unrated answer waiting for you here from the Professional.

If the Expert was helpful, rating their answer as satisfactory transfers your deposit to them – this is how the Expert is compensated. If you still need help with your question, please feel free to reply to the Expert on this question page. You may ask as many follow-up questions on the same question page as you need until you are satisfied.

Thank you,
Nicola
