Friends and Perjury

CK - Washington.   A criminal investigation for perjury is a rarity in Germany because witnesses are hardly ever examined under oath. But just that happened in a triangular case involving a chief judge at a district court, her live-in boyfriend from the ministry of justice and her allegded suitor, a chief judge at an appellate court. The appellate judge is alleged to have given her colleague a ruinous recommendation after she spurned his advances so that she could not advance in her career. The state is investigating the matter because it assumes that one of the parties lied when they supported and denied allegations of ulterior motives.

That appears to be the gist of reports at lawblog and newspapers which love the story.
