Sura 5
Aya 107
فَإِن عُثِرَ عَلىٰ أَنَّهُمَا استَحَقّا إِثمًا فَآخَرانِ يَقومانِ مَقامَهُما مِنَ الَّذينَ استَحَقَّ عَلَيهِمُ الأَولَيانِ فَيُقسِمانِ بِاللَّهِ لَشَهادَتُنا أَحَقُّ مِن شَهادَتِهِما وَمَا اعتَدَينا إِنّا إِذًا لَمِنَ الظّالِمينَ

Ali Unal

Then if it is discovered later that the two (witnesses) have been guilty of (that very) sin (of not giving true testimony), then have two others stand in their place from among those (rightful heirs of the deceased) whom the first two have deprived of their right, and these shall swear by God: "Our testimony is truer than the testimony of the other two, and we have not exceeded the bounds (of what is right, nor violated the rights of any others), for then we would indeed be among the wrongdoers."
