A person who knowingly makes a false statement in a report to the Registry or other relevant authorities commits an offence.

This person “shall be liable upon summary conviction before a Resident Magistrate or a Judge of a Family Court (as the case may require) to a fine not exceeding two hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($250,000), and in default of payment, to imprisonment with hard labour for a term not exceeding three months”, CCPA (2004) Section 89.

This section does not apply to a report that is made in good faith but turns out not to be true. You will only be liable for prosecution if you are malicious or intentionally deceptive at the time of making your report.
