Bare false witness
 
When my friend introduced him as a professional bare false witness, I was astonished,because he was in heavy demand.At least half a dozen people were waiting for him.
 
He just looked like a professional politician in flawless white and white and his hair and mush had also been neatly trimmed and dyed.
 
Though I was terribly in need of a false witness,still I had some reservations in engaging him as a witness for my case.
 
We were in queue to meet him and were waiting for our turn.Seeing my hesitation,my friend opened up.
 
"Ram, you are unnecessarily worried.You know he has not even completed his school education,but he has been very successful as a false witness.You know what's his standing? Ten years.Don't worry you can rely upon him to win your case."
 
My case was somewhat peculiar.My close friend had foisted a false case against me.Though I repaid the money borrowed from him and discharged the promissory note executed by me in his favor,he retained it saying it was misplaced somewhere;nor he issued any receipt for discharging the promissory note.Subsequently, he betrayed me and instituted a suit against me to recover the due from the already discharged promissory note.
 
Hence I had no other go but to engage a false witness to negative the false claim of my friend.
 
My counsel tutored the false witness.
 
When he entered the witness box,the plaintiff's counsel tried to drill him with an array of questions.
 
"You are a professional false witness.Am I right?"
 
"Sir,don't call me so.I am the witness of the defendant standing in the box to enlighten the court with truth."
 
"The defendant has not discharged the suit promissory note as claimed by him.That's why he has filed the suit against the plaintiff to recover the amount due from the suit promissory note.Had the defendant repaid any amount the plaintiff would have issued a receipt for it.Isn't it?"
 
"Of course, the defendant insisted on getting a receipt, but the plaintiff did not issue any."
 
"How do you know about it?After all you were not there,when the defendant discharged the suit promissory note.Were you?"
 
"I was very much there when the defendant repaid the principal amount with interest and discharged the promissory note."
 
"You are not the friend of the defendant?"
 
"Of course I am not."
 
"You did not accompany him to the plaintiff's residence when the defendant went to his house to discharge the suit promissory note."
 
"Of course,I didn't."
 
"Therefore you never knew the defendant previously."
 
"Of course,I didn't know him previously,but I saw him when he discharged the suit promissory note by repaying the plaintiff the amount due therein."
 
"How was it possible?He was not your friend.Nor you accompanied him to the plaintiff's residence when he discharged the suit promissory note."
 
"I was waiting at the plaintiff's residence with my friend to borrow some money for my emergent expenses.At that time the defendant came there.Therefore,I saw what transpired between them.The plaintiff having received the amount from the defendant had cheated him and foisted this false case against him."
 
The plaintiff's counsel never expected the false witness would turn the table against him using entirely a different angle.
 
The Plaintiff lost his case,thanks to the clinching evidence of the false witness.
