NOTES TO THE AFFIDAVIT

Note 1: Please provide your full names.

Note 2: Affidavits may be in the form of either a sworn statement or a solemn affirmation. Please select the form you prefer by deleting the alternate option here as well as within the text of your declaration before the Commissioner of Oaths at the end of your affidavit.

Note 3: Please take particular care that the information that you provide is a fair reflection on what really happened.

Please also take particular care that this information is really within your personal knowledge, that is that you personally experienced these facts with your own five senses. For example, you must have personally spoken to the vet about that aspect or you must have personally seen or heard the alleged fact yourself. If you are basing any of your allegations on someone else’s personal knowledge, then that person must provide a Confirmatory Affidavit to state that your allegations that pertain to them are true. (An example of such a Confirmatory Affidavit has been included at the end.)

If your affidavit would be based largely or completely on another person’s experiences, then that person should make the affidavit. If some of the facts contained in this other person’s affidavit are within your knowledge only, then that person would be entitled to make those statements in his or her affidavit, provided that person attaches a confirmatory affidavit from you.

Note 4: Please set out your relationship to the animal or how the event occurred on which your complaint is based.

Note 5: Please set out your complaint or complaints in this paragraph and the successive paragraphs. Please use separate consecutively numbered paragraphs for each allegation, using as many paragraphs as you need.

Your affidavit will have more impact if you are able to clearly set out the facts on which your allegations are based in an objective way.

It would be very helpful if you summarised your complaints by setting them out once again in point form in the last paragraph.

Note 6: When you have fully set out your complaint as suggested above, you must attach this second page to the back of your complaint. Then take the whole document to a Commissioner of Oaths, and sign your name on the line identified as "DEPONENT" before the Commissioner, who will then complete the rest of the page.

You will find Commissioners of Oaths at your local police station. Attorneys, bank managers and post masters are also Commissioners of Oaths.

Should you require any further information, you are welcome to contact the SA Veterinary Council at 012-345 6347, Fax 012-345 6369 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
