Lawyer Badr Abdullah Khamis explains that some people underestimate the crime of false communication despite the severity of its punishment in specific cases, pointing out that it is achieved when one of them informs or fabricates material evidence that another person has committed a crime contrary to reality, or the amount causes legal action against a person who knows that he is innocent. And that this notification is about a matter that requires the perpetrator to be punished criminally or discretionary,
He adds that everyone should realize that the penalty may not be less than that imposed on the innocent person if the report is proven to be false, even if the penalty is death, indicating that it is also achieved when all or some of the incident contained in the report is proven false, provided that the informant is known. By lying the facts he reported with malicious intent and harming the whistleblower.
Article (324) of the Decree-Law states that anyone who informs the judicial authority or administrative authorities of incidents of non-existent dangers, contrary to the truth, or of a crime that he knows has not been committed, shall be punished with imprisonment for a period not exceeding six months and a fine, or one of the two penalties.
While Article (325) stipulates that anyone who falsely and in bad faith reports to the judicial authority or the administrative authorities that a person has committed something that requires a criminal penalty or administrative sanction, even if this does not result in the filing of a criminal or disciplinary action, and anyone who fabricates material evidence shall be punished by imprisonment and a fine or one of the two penalties. On a person committing a crime contrary to reality or causing legal action to be taken against a person who knows his innocence.
The penalty shall be imprisonment and a fine in both cases if the calumned crime is a felony.
