zaprzysięganie, odbieranie przysięgi


Explanation:
to administer the oath to a witness - zaprzysiąc świadka (PWN-OUP)

affirmation - odbieranie uroczystego przyrzeczenia (?)

AFFIRMATION - a solemn declaration allowing a person to speak as a witness in court or to sign certain documents such as an affidavit, without taking an oath (=without swearing in the name of God) - Longman Dctry of Business of English

AFFIRM - 1 (...), 2. To promise in a solemn form to tell the truth while giving evidence or when making an affidavit. Any person who objects to being sworn on oath, or in respect of whom it is not reasonably practicable to administer an oath, may instead affirm. Affirmation has the same legal effects as the taking of an oath - Oxford Dctry of Law
