The receiver has power to send for persons and papers, to examine any persons, including
the creditors, claimants, president, directors, and other officers and agents of the
corporation, on oath or affirmation (which oath or affirmation the receiver may administer),
respecting its affairs and transactions and its estate, money, goods, chattels, credits,
notes, bills, choses in action, real and personal estate and effects of every kind;
and also respecting its debts, obligations, contracts, and liabilities, and the claims
against it; and if any person refuses to be sworn or affirmed, or to make answers
to such questions as may be put to him, or refuses to declare the whole truth touching
the subject matter of the examination, the court may, on report of the receiver, commit
such person as for contempt.
