Gangsters’ game (Survival Brainteaser Puzzle)

The gangsters have captured a rival. They intend to kill him but in order to make it more interesting, their leader says to him: “make any statement you like. If it’s true, you’ll be hanged. If it is false, you’ll be shot.” What does the man say that saves him?

Clue for the Puzzle:

He must find something which is true if it is false, and false if it is true.

Answer for the Puzzle:

He says ‘I will be shot’ If this is true then he will be hanged, but he cannot be hanged because he cannot then be shot, and it would not then be true, and he could not therefore be hanged…
