Meaning of Intrinsic Fraud
In relation to trials, fraud is extrinsic when it actually prevents an adversarial trial but is intrinsic when it is employed during the course of a hearing which provides the forum for the truth to appear , even though the truth was distorted by the fraud complained of. That fraud which pertains to issue involved in an original action . where judgment is founded on fraudulent instruments or perjured evidence then there is intrinsic fraud. The rule would appear to be that where the fraud is extrinsic, the judgment obtained as a result thereof is liable to be set aside whereas it is otherwise where the fraud is intrinsic.
