In civil proceedings, statements of case and some other court documents (including witness statements and experts' reports) must contain a statement of truth which confirms the facts stated in the document are true. It must be signed by the party, their litigation friend or legal representative.

Statement of Truth explained

Failure to sign the statement of truth or a lack of belief in the truth of the document, could mean the statement of case is struck out or the party being unable to rely on it as evidence. A false statement can also be a contempt of court, which could result in the person who made the statement being committed to prison
