Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
This is an administrative internal proceeding, not a governmental agency or judicial proceeding. Thus, it is not likely to be accepted by the criminal court
, BUT, if the statement was made under oath, then it is potentially perjury if this was a government body hearing, 18 PA Code 4902. Perjury.
(a) Offense defined.--A person is guilty of perjury, a
felony of the third degree, if in any official proceeding he
makes a false statement under oath or equivalent affirmation, or
swears or affirms the truth of a statement previously made, when
the statement is material and he does not believe it to be true.
So you have to have a hearing before a government entity under oath to be deemed perjury. However, if false statements were made and it was not an official government proceeding, then it is a civil suit for defamation against the party who made the false statements about you.
